Abstract

In this study, polymer microarrays were used for the rapid identification of polymer substrates upon which a suspension cell line would both adhere and proliferate giving a detailed and rapid understanding of cell-biomaterial interactions. Analysis demonstrated that suspension K562 human erythroleukemic cells, which normally grow in suspension, adhered and proliferated on several different polymers. Phenotypic and transcriptomic analysis techniques allowed examination of the interaction between cells and polymers permitting the elucidation of putative links between phenotypic responses to cell-biomaterial interactions and global gene expression.
