Flexible electrical recording from cells using nanowire transistor arrays.

, Brian P. Timko, Lucien E. Weiss & Charles M. Lieber
Semiconductor nanowires (NWs) have unique electronic properties and sizes comparable with biological structures involved in cellular communication, thus making them promising nanostructures for establishing active interfaces with biological systems. We report a flexible approach to interface NW field-effect transistors (NWFETs) with cells and demonstrate this for silicon NWFET arrays coupled to embryonic chicken cardiomyocytes. Cardiomyocyte cells were cultured on thin, optically transparent polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) sheets and then brought into contact with Si-NWFET arrays fabricated on...
