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 to measure the detachment force of an adherent cell on a material. In this study, a new system was developed to measure directly the shear… CONTINUE READING
