Abstract

Technologies like additive manufacturing, microfluidics, and electrospray show a possibility of generating a variety of 3-Dimensional structures but seriously suffer in adapting and utilizing the wide variety of available biocompatible materials because of innate diverse physical and chemical properties of biomaterials. It is very important to have a technology which can be viable and dynamically adaptable for different types of materials in generating uniform structures. This work presents a novel cell-laden hydrogel generation using the surface tension phenomenon in controlling the size of the hydrogel.
