This paper reports a one-step method to fabricate highly porous micropatterned 2-D scaffold sheets. The scaffold sheets have high glucose diffusion, indicating that the porosity and pore morphology of the scaffolds are viable with respect to nutrient transport, and a micropattern for cell alignment. HUVEC culturing proved that the scaffold sheets are suitable for cell culturing. More extensive culturing experiments with mouse myoblasts, C2C12, and mouse osteoblasts, MC3T3, showed that tissue… CONTINUE READING
