3D magnetic assembly of cellular structures with "printing" manipulation by microrobot-controlled microfluidic system

Abstract

Microfluidic technology provides a mild way to fabricate cell-laden hydrogel three-dimensional (3D) modules. However, the poor controllability of hydrogels and unstable microfluidic fabrication process are still problems during the assembly process. In this paper, a novel "bottom-up" method is used to assemble the complex shapes with magnetic alginate… (More)
