Study of Bio-Mineralization of BCP with Compensation of Calcium and Phosphate Ions
In the present study, an Intelligent Multi-parameter Simulated Evaluation in vitro （IMSE system） was used to study the deposition properties of apatite formation on the surface of biphasic calcium phosphate porous ceramic (BCP) from static and dynamic r-SBF. Results showed that apatite formed on the surface of BCP from static and dynamic r-SBF differed between each other. In static r-SBF, ions were transferred by diffusion, which could not compensate the consuming of calcium ions, and mist apatite layer was formed on the surface of samples. But in the dynamic r-SBF, simulated fluid was adjusted precisely and flowed forcedly, the concentrations of ions were homogeneous; with the compensation of ions, calcium and phosphate were supersaturated, and the free energy of apatite formation was negative, bone-like apatite sheets were formed on the surface of samples.
