Title
Two photon induced polymerization of organic–inorganic hybrid biomaterials for microstructured medical devices
Abstract

Three-dimensional microstructured medical devices, including microneedles and tissue engineering scaffolds, were fabricated by two photon induced polymerization of Ormocer® organic–inorganic hybrid materials. Femtosecond laser pulses from a titanium:sapphire laser were used to break chemical bonds on Irgacure® 369 photoinitiator within a small focal volume. The radicalized starter molecules reacted with Ormocer® US-S4 monomers to create radicalized polymolecules. The desired structures are fabricated by moving the laser focus in three dimensions using a galvano-scanner and a micropositioning system. Ormocer® surfaces fabricated using two photon induced polymerization demonstrated acceptable cell viability and cell growth profiles against B35 neuroblast-like cells and HT1080 epithelial-like cells. Lego®-like interlocking tissue engineering scaffolds and microneedle arrays with unique geometries were created using two photon induced polymerization. These results suggest that two photon induced polymerization is able to create medical microdevices with a larger range of sizes, shapes, and materials than chemical isotropic etching, injection molding, reactive ion etching, surface micromachining, bulk micromachining, polysilicon micromolding, lithography–electroforming–replication, or other conventional microfabrication techniques.
