Title: MAGNETO-ACTIVE OR ELECTRO-ACTIVE COMPOSITE MATERIAL, USE THEREOF, AND METHOD FOR INFLUENCING BIOLOGICAL CELLS DEPOSITED ON THE MAGNETO-ACTIVE OR ELECTRO-ACTIVE COMPOSITE MATERIAL
Abstract:
The invention relates to biocompatible, soft, magneto-active polymers (MAP), the elasto-mechanical properties of which can be adjusted by a magnetic field. The invention further relates to special magnetic field systems for locally controlling the MAP and moving, separating, controlling, and influencing biological cells on the surface of the MAP material.
