On Wednesday, April 19th, 2017, Mr. Alan Ahmed, Assistant Lecturer at Medical Laboratory Department at Komar University of Science and Technology, presented a seminar on Biocompatible hydrogels that are used for skin dressing.
During the seminar, studies on ionic crosslinking of alginate by CaCO3, CaSO4 and CaCl2 cross-linkers was presented along with their physical properties analysis by the mechanical compressing test as well as degradation study of the hydrogel. Degradation profile of covalently cross-linked alginate, which allows compression, was presented as well.
The seminar followed by a question and answer session from the attendees. Vice President of Academic Affairs, Prof Jalal Saeed, presented the certificate of appreciation to Mr. Ahmed for his valuable seminar.
