Traditionally, some physical methods such as the surface hydrophilicity improvement, roughness changing, building special structure and chemical substance or biochemical molecular printing are all available for cell immobilization on biosensors. 1 Hydrophilicity Improving Hydrophilicity is one of the fundamental factors that affect the soakage property of material. A uniform hydrated layer exists outside the cell membrane, which determines the suitable parameter of the cell adherence surface. Water contact angle measurement reveals that methyl (CH3), bromine (Br), and vinyl (CH=CH2) groups result in hydrophobic surfaces, while amine (NH2) and carboxyl (COOH) function groups lead to moderately wettable surfaces.

Less cost is also necessary. In their work, polyethylene glycol (PEG) was chosen as the inhibitory background material, which has been shown to provide a long-term inhibition of cell adherence in several studies of patterned neural cell culture [32, 33]. PEG is a kind of material, which is nonreactive with the glass print head, as well as nontoxic to tissues and cells. In their experiment, a collagen and poly-D-laminin (PDL) mixture was chosen as an adhesive part, which was printed by ink-jet on top of the PEG background according to the pattern set in the program.

The whole operation of chip packing and cell culture should be ensured in a sterilized environment. Additionally, all the subjects involved in the cell’s culture, including substrate, petri dish, and other materials, should have good biocompatibility. 3 Basic Surface Modification Rules Patterning cells effectively on chips has recently drawn considerable attention due to its important role in fundamental cell biology, tissue engineering, cell-based biosensors, and other bio-MEMS devices. 3 Basic Surface Modification Rules 17 surfaces analysis are well considered in surface characterization, including spectral methods (x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and others) as well as nonspectral methods (water contact angle, dye assays, biological assays, and zeta potential).
