Next Generation: Cell-Covered Fastener

Next Generation: Cell-Covered Fastener

The technique: To rapidly assemble and disassemble engineered tissue in culture, researchers at the University of Toronto have designed a system of biocompatible scaffold sheets that, once covered in cells, can be layered together and pulled apart like Velcro. Announcing their technique in a Science Advances paper published today (August 28), the researchers describe the use of “Tissue-Velcro” to build 3D heart tissues that beat spontaneously and synchronously.
