Microfluidic spinning of flat alginate fibers with grooves for cell-aligning scaffolds.


Alginate microribbons with longitudinally grooved microstructures are continuously fabricated by means of a microfluidic system. The number and dimensions of the microgroovesare successfully controlled by regulation of the slit-shaped channel (yellow in figure). This method opens up the possibility of mass production of scaffolds for tissue engineering… (More)
