Abstract

Cell cultivation devices that mimic the complex microenvironment of cells in the human body are of high importance for the future of stem cell research. This paper introduces a prototype of an electromechanical stimulation platform as a modular expansion of an earlier developed mechanical stimulation device for stem cell research. A solution processable ink from PEDOT:PSS and graphene is studied as a suitable material for fabrication of transparent stretchable electrodes. Challenges of electrode integration on a flexible membrane using this material are critically discussed.
