The ability of biomaterials to support the adhesion of cells is a necessary condition for their use in scaffold-guided tissue engineering. Waveguide evanescent field fluorescence (WEFF) microscopy is a relatively new microscopic technique that allows the number of cell adhesions to a waveguide surface be measured by imaging the interfacial contact region… CONTINUE READING
