    • Design of a customized multipurpose nano-enabled implantable system for in-vivo theranostics 

      Juanola Feliu, Esteve; Miribel Català, Pere Lluís; Paez Aviles, Cristina; Colomer Farrarons, Jordi; González Piñeiro, Manel; Samitier Martí, Josep (2014-10-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The first part of this paper reviews the current development and key issues on implantable multi-sensor devices for in vivo theranostics. Afterwards, the authors propose an innovative biomedical multisensory system for in ...
    • Directional alignment of MG63 cells on polymer surfaces containing point microstructures 

      Christopher, A Mills; Fernandez, Javier G; Martinez, Elena; Miriam, Funes; Engel López, Elisabeth; Abdelhamid, Errachid; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Samitier Martí, Josep (2007-05)
      Article
      Open Access
      MG63 cells cultured on regular arrays of point microstructures (posts and holes) are shown to preferentially align at certain angles to the pattern of the structures, at 08, 308, and 458 in particular. The effect is found ...

    • Focused ion beam/scanning electron microscopy characterization of cell behavior on polymer micro-/nanopatterned substrates: A study of cell¿substrate interactions 

      Martínez, Elena; Engel López, Elisabeth; López-Iglesias, Carmen; Mills, Christopher A; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Samitier Martí, Josep (2008)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Topographic micro and nanostructures can play an interesting role in cell behaviour when cells are cultured on these kinds of patterned substrates. It is especially relevant to investigate the influence of the nanometric ...
    • Influence of fabrication parameters on cellular microarrays for stem cell studies 

      Rodríguez-Seguí, S.A.; Pla-Roca, M.; Engel López, Elisabeth; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Martínez, E.; Samitier Martí, Josep (2009)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Lately there has been an increasing interest in the development of tools that enable the high throughput analysis of combinations of surface-immobilized signaling factors and which examine their effect on stem cell ...
    • Layer-by-layer modification effects on a nanopore's inner surface of polycarbonate track-etched membranes 

      Paoli, Roberto; Engel López, Elisabeth; Homs-Corbera, A; Samitier Martí, Josep (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      The control of the morphology, as well as the physical and chemical properties, of nanopores is a key issue for many applications. Reducing pore size is important in nanopore-based sensing applications as it helps to ...
    • Surface modifications of silicon nitride for cellular biosensor applications 

      Gustavsson, Johan; Altankov, George Petrov; Errachid, Abdelhamid; Samitier Martí, Josep; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Engel López, Elisabeth (2008-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Thin films of silicon nitride (Si3N4) can be used in several kinds of micro-sized biosensors as a material to monitor fine environmental changes related to the process of bone formation in vitro. We found however that ...
    • Transparent micro and nano patterned poly(lactic acid) for biomedical applications 

      Mills, Ca; Navarro, M; Engel López, Elisabeth; Martínez, E; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Errachid, A; Samitier Martí, Josep (2006-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The formation of structures in poly(lactic acid) has been investigated with respect to producing areas of regular, superficial features with dimensions comparable to those of cells or biological macromolecules. Nanoembossing, ...
