Development of Apatite Micropattern Test Specimen for Cell Operation


Article Preview

Apatite micropattern was fabricated by a combination of biomimetic process and transcription of resist pattern. We optimized some fabrication conditions such as the height of resist pattern, temperature, concentrations and pH of simulated body fluid(SBF). Consequently, we successfully obtained apatite micropattern widely and homogeneously on a substrate in a short fabrication period.
