Biocompatible three-dimensional structures have been fabricated using micromachined silicon as a mold. Techniques have been developed for patterning conductive silicone rubber on insulating silicone rubber substrates. Furthermore, polyurethane replica of micromachined silicon wafers were formed. Applications of biocompatible microstructures comprise cell culture substrates, neural implants and prostheses, and microsubstrates for bioartificial organs.
