Abstract

A polymer microarray of 120 polyurethanes was used to identify polymers that promoted the adhesion of bone marrow dendritic cells (BMDC). Identified polymers were coated onto glass cover slips and shown to be efficient substrates for the immobilisation of these primary cells, which underwent efficient phagocytosis while still presumably maintaining their immature state.
