Sequential build-up of hydrogel environments around single cells

Controlling alginate gel formation by diffusion of Ca ions through a filter barrier, a layer-by-layer deposition technique with resolution on the size scale of a single cell is presented. It gives the possibility of exposing cells under biocompatible conditions to microheterogeneous three-dimensional environments, mimicking the layered structure of extracellular matrix in tissues.
