The fabrication of equiaxed collagen-GAG scaffolds with different pore sizes was discussed. Structural and mechanical properties of the collagen-GAG scaffolds were also investigated. It was found that the scaffolds fabricated at the four final temperatures of freezing had mean pore sizes between 95.9 and 150.5 μm and comprehensive moduli between 4760 6570 pa. It was also observed that by one-factor ANOVAs followed by Fisher's PLSD post-hoc testing, there was a significant difference (p<0.05) in mean pore size between each of the groups and scaffolds produced at -40° were significantly stiffer than the other scaffolds.
