Design of Temperature-Responsive Cell Culture Surfaces for Cell Sheet Engineering

Figure 5

Schematic of recovery, harvesting, transferring, and layering cell sheet using the gelatin-coated plunger device. (a) Macroscopic view of gelatin-coated plunger-like device as a cell sheet manipulator. (b) Cell sheet was covered by the gelatin-coated device and incubated at 20°C. (c) Cell sheet was harvested by the device. (d) The harvested cell sheet was transferred to a new cell culture surface. (e) The harvested cell sheet was layered on another cell sheet.
