Abstract

The patterning of retinal epithelial cells on polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEMs) lines is presented. PEMs were deposited in discrete lines using a poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) microfluidic network on top of a flat PDMS slab. The layers were formed by sequentially flowing the polyions throughout the microfluidic network. Retinal cells, seeded on flat PEMs/PDMS surfaces adhered and grew on the PEMs areas preferentially. Cells were allowed to grow for up to two weeks showing the pattern delineated by the PEMs.
