    Abstract

    We demonstrate a method to fabricate micrometer-size massively-parallel hydrogel patterns inside closed microfluidic chips. The design concept is based on selectively trapping UV-curable hydrogel solution using non-fluorescent capillary barriers. This approach allows complete control over selectively filling and emptying monolith glass chips.
