Abstract

This paper describes a method to knit biomaterial-containing hydrogel fibers for fabricating 3D hydrogel microstructures. Cell- or bead-containing alginate hydrogel microfibers (30-95 "m in diameter) were generated with a coaxial laminar flow microfluidic device. We manually handled these microfibers in a liquid using a fiber clamp mechanism, and succeeded to knit them to form a complex woven structure such as braid composed of three different bead-containing gel fibers.
