Abstract: Background and Objectives: Alginate, an anionic polysaccharide distributed widely in the cell walls of brown algae, is used in biomedical applications. However, alginate's performance as a biomaterial, has limited by its several contamination such as endotoxins, proteins and polyphenols. Methods and Results: To overcome this problem, we have developed using modified Korbutt method for alginate purification. After purification, we made alginate films and used for retinal pigment epithelial cell (RPEs) regenera…
