Abstract
A three-dimensional polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-based microarray was one-step fabricated by releasing from an SU-8 mold for cell trapping. A human embryonic kidney-293 cell line was cultured on the PDMS microarray. By taking advantage of the chemical nature difference between PDMS surface released from oxidized silicon and released from SU-8 substrate, cells can only grow and be attached inside the PDMS microarray after 2 days of cell culture. To investigate the substantial nature of the cell adhesion and repellency on the PDMS substrate, atomic force microscopy, contact angle, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy methods have been carried out to analyze the physical and chemical properties of the PDMS material surfaces under different surface treatment circumstances.
