A new technique for direct measurement of the shear force necessary to detach a cell from a material.

Abstract

Affinity for cells is one of the important properties for biomaterials, because they are always used adjacent to living tissue. For the development of new biomaterials with superior biocompatibility, quantitative evaluation of the materials' affinity for cells is necessary. One of the methods to evaluate the materials' affinity for cells quantitatively is… (More)
