Channelmat- Novel microstructured 3D hydrogels

Ref-Nr: TA-TA-IPR_2015_0019


Kurzfassung

Interconnected microchannels

Channels of subcellular size

Optimal Environment for cells


Hintergrund

Materials providing a large cell-material contact area and well-defined mechanical properties are excellent for Controlling cells by mechanotransduction. Porous hydrogels provide such a solution.

 

 


Lösung

Hydrogel requirements:

- to create an Environment, which is favorable for cell growth

- to increase the contact area between cells and their surrounding Environment to optimize mechanotransduction


Vorteile

The innovative 3D biomaterial serves as a platform for Controlling mechanotransduction by mimicking natural 3D cellular Environments. It contains a novel form of microporous structures represented by micron-sized channels embedded in a hydrogel Matrix of a well-defined stiffness.


Anwendungsbereiche

Channelmat wants to take the next step and is looking for:

infrastructure and know-how of Research-oriented companies

development of marketable concepts for novel products

knowledge Transfer into already existing products
