    Abstract

    This paper describes the cell adhesion experiments on glass surfaces utilizing interlaced hydrophilic and hydrophobic surface areas. Specific cell cultures are ultimately integrated with a silicon substrate involving isolated fluid channels to allow the introduction of the cells, fluorescent labeling of them, and study of effects of different nutrients, medicaments or toxicants on action of the specific cell types. The results of the high throughput screening experiments show potential for speeding up e.g. drug development.
