Abstract

Engineered materials have been employed as versatile tools to explore fundamental processes in cell biology/drug development as well as an approach towards intelligent devices, thereby becoming key components in modern technology. Herein, a ParaStamp technique is revealed to possess applications for cell patterning, drug screening, and rewritable functional patterning. The ParaStamp includes a micropatterned polydimethylsiloxane master and a liquid-phased paraffin oil generated at high temperature, which can transfer the patterned paramembrane onto varied material surfaces such as glass, polystyrene, and flexible foil. This technique is simple and cost-effective to meet the high-throughput requirement for industries. Taken together, the findings herein should provide general insights in cell biology, biodetection, and the development of smart hydrophobic surfaces.
