This paper describes the influence of the composition of poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) on the attachment and growth of several different types of mammalian cells: primary human umbilical artery endothelial cells (HUAECs), transformed 3T3 fibroblasts (3T3s), transformed osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells, and HeLa (transformed epithelial) cells. Cells grew on(More)
This letter describes dynamic self-assembly of two-component rotors floating at the interface between liquid and air into simple, reconfigurable mechanical systems ͑''machines''͒. The rotors are powered by an external, rotating magnetic field, and their positions within the interface are controlled by: ͑i͒ repulsive hydrodynamic interactions between them(More)
This paper describes a simple method for the microfabrication of mechanically compliant, magnetically-responsive microstructures. These microstructures were fabricated in one step by using a ferromagnetic photoresist, which, in turn, was prepared by suspending nickel nanospheres in a negative photosensitive epoxy (SU8). The nominal diameter of the nickel(More)
This paper describes a microfluidic device, fabricated in poly(dimethylsiloxane), that is used for potentiometric titrations. This system generates step gradients of redox potentials in a series of microchannels. These potentials are probed by microelectrodes that are integrated into the chip; the measured potentials were used to produce a titration curve(More)
The utility of the Cassie-Baxter formula to predict the apparent contact angle of a drop on rough hydrophobic surfaces has been questioned recently. To resolve this issue, experimental and numerical data for advancing and receding contact angles are reported. In all cases considered it is seen that contact angles follow the overall trend of the(More)
