NIL for in vitro Neurotoxicity Assay Development
Microelectrode array chambers (MEA chips) were applied as a support to generate 3D microwell environment for neural cells in electrical activity measurement studies.
The PVM -A combined with UV illumination and the 24 well stamp bodies were used to generate imprints with 100 µm sized wells and interconnecting channels aligned to the electrodes of the multi-electrode arrays. The matrix of PEG based hydrogel was polymerized by 60 s UV treatment.
