Abstract

In this work, we report a novel method for patterning poly-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (PolyHEMA) utilizing a variation of standard polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) soft lithographic stamping. We have demonstrated precise micronscale patterning of polyHEMA on both glass and polystyrene substrates, facilitating fabrication of large scale polyHEMA cell culture arrays. These large scale microwell arrays were used to capture and culture single SUM159 breast cancer cells in both adherent and non-adherent environments. The unique chemical composition of polyHEMA allows its use in migration blocking, suspension culture, and even, if so desired, as a master for subsequent lithographic processing.
