  • We are grateful to our colleagues, Ms. Marita Weerts-Eden and Ms. Elke Frahmann, for help with the cell cultures, and to Ms. Carolina Nunes-Kirchner and Dr. Oleg Sklyar (currently at the European Bioinformatics Institute (UK)) for developing the positioning system on a microscope. We are also thankful to Prof. J. O. Metzger (University of Oldenburg) for the synthesis of OEG thiols. This work is supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Wi 1617/6, BioGeoChemistry of Tidal Flats).

Festgeklebt! Mit der hier vorgestellten mikroelektrochemischen Methode lassen sich das Zelladhäsionsverhalten eines Substrats aus einer Oligoethylenglycol-terminierten Monoschicht (OEG-SAM) sowie die anschließende Zelladhäsion und das Zellwachstum in situ manipulieren.
