A steady improvement of the biostability of the sponges has also been observed with increasing chitosan concentration. The biocompatibility test showed high proliferation of fibroblasts cultured on the sponges [88]. As mentioned above (see Sect. 2) by varying the concentration of genipin, the crosslinking degree of chitosan and/or chitosan with another biopolymer can be modulated. 1% w/w of polymer). At higher genipin concentration, the formulations obtained have more defined and dense structure similar to films, sponges and scaffolds.
