Biotechnological Applications of Inorganic Glasses

  • Alexis Clare
Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)


Rarely thought of as a biomedical material, inorganic glass is ubiquitous in biotechnology and has the potential of being an extremely useful and very flexible biomedical material. When one thinks of glass, it is usually in terms of its application, for example, window glass and drinking glass. However glass is in fact a whole subgroup of materials under the classification “solid state”.
