AbstractCell cultures are an important aspect of tissue engineering (TE). TE is a field whose main aim is to support regeneration of damaged, difficult to regenerate tissues. The scaffolds are the main and the latest issue of this science. Scaffolds are a medium for cell culture characterized by a highly developed, three-dimens ional spatial structure. One form of scaffolds are semi-permeable membranes. The experimental results of the preparation of semi-permeable membranes for cell cultures were presented. The effect of the molecular weight of polylactide and the addition of pore precursors (polyvinylpyrrolidone) on the morphology of the membranes and on functional their properties were studied.
