Facile Cell Sheet Harvest and Translocation Mediated by a Thermally Expandable Hydrogel with Controlled Cell Adhesion.


Facile cell sheet translocation system is developed based on a thermally expandable hydrogel with modular cell adhesion favorable for both robust cell sheet formation and harvest. Efficient translocation is achieved at moderate cell-substrate interaction, which can be tuned by two-step reactions of mussel-inspired coating.
