Useful contacts: A new method to achieve regular patterns generates anisotropic, “patchy” microspheres by using interfacial condensation of a liquid mask and the proximity of the particles to their neighbors to determine a mask pattern. The microspheres are separated from the scaffold and labeled with a first protein at non-mask regions (green) followed by removal of the mask and immobilization of a second protein (red).
