Preparation of Anisotropic Multiscale Micro-Hydrogels Via Two-Photon Continuous Flow Lithography

Categories: News

This collaborative work between the LASER- Micro and Nanotechnology and Nanoscopies for Electronic and Electrophotonic Devices and the Laboratory of Nanotechnology for precision medicine at IIT shows how two-photon polymerization in microfluidic channels is a suitable technique for the continued fabrication of anisotropic micro-particles in the sub-10 µm range. The proposed approach could support the fabrication of micro-hydrogels of well-defined morphology, stiffness, and surface properties for the sustained release of therapeutic agents for drug delivery applications.”
