Authors Samhaber Robert, Schottdorf Manuel, El Hady Ahmed, Bröking Kai, Daus Andreas, Thielemann Christiane, Stühmer Walter, Wolf Fred,
Description This repository accompanies the manuscript Samhaber et al. J Neurosc Methods 2016. It contains detailed instructions for building a micro contact printing (μCP) machine and for using it to spatially structure neuronal cultures. Its purpose is to allow any lab without access to a lithography facility to structure cultures of neurons with the method developed in our group. It contains details of the preparation of neuronal cultures, all protocols used, and the construction of the μCP machine including all CAD files.
