Protein gradients on substrates are prepared using a microstamping technique. An Au pattern is transferred from a patterned silicon stamp to a polymeric substrate, and exposed polymer regions are then selectively activated for protein immobilization. The protein gradient is achieved by varying the spacing between the exposed polymer regions (see Figure).
