Sorted out: Soft-lithography micropatterning of a photodegradable poly(ethylene glycol) hydrogel was utilized to sort cell-bound microbeads. Biofunctionalized microbeads were patterned, screened for cell binding activity, and isolated from arrays by UV irradiation. The technique is a simple approach for sorting and downstream processing of cultured cells.
