Parylene stencil for cell and protein patterning
 

The parylene stencil described earlier has various applications in tissue engineering and bioMEMS. Parylene-C is a biocompatible material that is deposited at room temperature, is inert and is an emerging material. By using a parylene stencil mask, we have patterned proteins and cells selectively on various surfaces including PDMS, polystyrene and glass.
