Adhesion and alignment of primary human gingival fibroblast to Petri dishes were controlled by proper modification of the surface chemistry of the solid substrate. In particular, air plasma (glow-discharge) treatment, coupled to a masking technique, was used to pattern cell-adhesive areas on a cell-adhesion-resistant alginate coated surface.
