Elution curve for a preloaded and a postloaded BSA rings. Errors bars indicate the standard deviation from three replicates of representative rings.

Grahic Jump Location
Fig. 2

Elution curve for Rhodamine B preloaded into unfoamed LSR and foam rings. Errors bars indicate the standard deviation of three measurements from representative samples. In all cases, force values for compressed rings under mechanical testing were comparable to commercially available rings (data not shown).
