Abstract

Microfiber spun by electrospinning technology and microfluidics-based technology have been developed as a powerful tool in tissue engineering applications; however, there have been limits in cumbersome fabrication process using hazardous solvents and down-scaling, respectively. Here, we present a novel method to spin several strands of microfibers at a time, like noodles, with ultrathin diameter in few micron-scale diameter without using solvents based on microfluidics overcoming those limitations of conventional methods. With this platform, we fabricated a porous membrane made of ultrathin microfibers without using solvents and confirmed its potential as a various-drugs/cells loaded sheet or 3D scaffold using microfluidics technology that can be a useful tool in tissue engineering applications.
