Adhesion of cells to a biomaterial surface can be a major factor mediating its biocompatibility. In this investigation, jet impingement techniques were used to quantify strength of cellular adhesion to various material surfaces. The metals tested: HS25 (a cobalt-based alloy similar to F75), 316L stainless steel, Ti-6Al-4V, and commercially pure tantalum, exhibited nearly a fivefold increase in adhesion strength above that characteristic of the polymeric materials tested (PTFE, silicone rubber… CONTINUE READING
