Paper Abstract

The identification, fabrication and evaluation of biomimetic templates hold great potential for a variety of applications. The generation of templates on these substrates is achieved using an appropriately modified atomic force microscope (AFM) tip. The fabrication process of tissue and cell based templates reported in this paper is accomplished using Dip-Pen Nanolithography. This report identifies critical parameters necessary for the patterning process: initial surface quality, temperature and humidity conditions. The results of this proof of concept experiment can be utilized in future in vitro and in vivo studies to test the templates bio-compatibility and specificity.
