A novel cell-based microfluidic multichannel setup-impact of hydrodynamics and surface characteristics on the bioadhesion of polystyrene microspheres.

Abstract

Carboxylated polystyrene microspheres with 1 μm in diameter were surface-modified either by coating with poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) as cationic polyelectrolyte leading to a conversion of the surface charge from negative to positive, or by covalent immobilization of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) via a carbodiimide method to obtain a carbohydrate specific… (More)
