A drug screening assay based on patterned cells was developed. The patterning was performed by detaching single lymphocytes with laser tweezers from a poly-ethylene oxide (PEO) surface and immobilizing them on a surface coated with Cell-TakR, a strong cellular adhesive. The detachment force of the cells from the PEO-surface was determined on a single cell base with the laser tweezers to be between 1.5 and 4.5 pN. Different lymphocyte classes were loaded with the fluorescent calcium indicator Fluo-3 and the pH indicator BCECF. Specific stimulation of the immobilized cells is monitored.
