Microstructuring thermoresponsive gel using hysteresis towards 3D cell assembly


In this paper, we conducted an assembly of microstructures made of a thermoresponsive gel using hysteresis character of the thermoresponsive polymer solution. This method can be used for 3 dimensional cell assembly by embedding cells in the thermoresponsive gel structures. Gel sheets can be fabricated by micrheaters on a substrate and maintained in the gel… (More)
