To achieve the optimal 3D matrix-cell conformation, recombinant peptide can be processed into other formulations than microspheres and hydrogels, such as porous scaffolds. These sponges or sheets can have directional or non-directional pores. With respect to optimisation for different cell types, pore sizes are tunable between 20-400 μm. As with the microspheres, these sponges can be used for (3D) cell culturing purposes in regenerative medicine or drug discovery purposes.
