Abstract:
We present a new strategy for fabricating fibrin gels by electrochemically controlling a cascade reaction and its application in cell culture. In this strategy, Ca²⁺ is released from CaCO₃ particles via electrochemical acidification. In the presence of the released Ca²⁺, the activated cascade reaction produces fibrin gels.
