The present invention relates to an autoclavable, reusable, low-cost multifunctional biomaterial-based nanofibrous hanging permeable cell culture insert and fabrication thereof. It also relates to a process of fabrication of the biomaterial-based nanofibrous hanging permeable cell culture insert. The hanging cell culture insert of the present invention which employs a nanofibrous biomaterial-based membrane is low-cost, varying pore sizes and is easy to manufacture by a simple process involving few steps and using low-priced starting materials. The insert can be utilized in a wide variety of applications such as co-culture studies, tri-culture studies, cell migration and adhesion, toxicity testing, in-vitro model of angiogenesis, cell invasion assay and tissue engineering applications.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
