This chapter details and expands upon the original flow lithography procedure that we have developed to directly pattern multi-component microstructures made up of biocompatible hydrogel. We discuss in detail the relevant experimental parameters for making the fabrication technique work in practice as well as the parameters needed to render the substrates compatible with mammalian cells read more ...
