Journal Article
Celik, S., Dominici, S., Filby, B., Das, A., Madden, L., & Paunov, V. (2019). Fabrication of Human Keratinocyte Cell Clusters for Skin Graft Applications by Templating Water-in-Water Pickering Emulsions. Biomimetics, 4(3), https://doi.org/10.3390/biomimetics4030050

Most current methods for the preparation of tissue spheroids require complex materials, involve tedious physical steps and are generally not scalable. We report a novel alternative, which is both inexpensive and up-scalable, to produce large quantiti... Read More

Bioimprint aided cell recognition and depletion of human leukemic HL60 cells from peripheral blood (2019)
Journal Article
