ISR intellectual property available to license
U.S. Patent: 7,375,404
The present invention provides a micro-electro-mechanical device having a substrate, a patterned microchannel on the substrate and an encapsulation membrane covering the microchannel. The encapsulation membrane is reversibly attachable and separable relative to the patterned structure.
The device is constructed using biomolecular engineering and nano-biotechnology biofabrication through the use of materials such as Chitosan (a bio compatible natural polymer), and by processes employing Tyrosinase-catalyzed Macromolecular Assembly, and Transglutaminase-catalyzed Macromolecular Assembly.
