Incubator Proof Miniaturized Holomonitor to in Situ Monitor Cancer Cells Exposed to Green Tea Polyphenol and Preosteoblast Cells Adhering on Nanostructured Titanate Surfaces: Validity of the Measured Parameters and Their Corrections

P. Beatrix et al.

J. Biomed. Opt (2015)

Institution: University of Pannonia, Hungary

Cell Line: HeLa, MC3T3-E1 (HeLa: human cervical cancer; MC3T3-E1 mouse osteoblastic cell line)

Research Area: Basic research, nanostructures

Tags: Holomonitor M4, Cell Motility, Nanostructuring, Cancer, Optical coatings, Biomedical optics, Microscopy, In situ metrology, Optical biosensors

Conclusions: Holomonitor M4 was used to observe cancer cell motility, motility speed, and migration in the presence of the green tea polyphenol, epigallocatechin gallate, as well as to monitor the adhesion of preosteoblast cells on nanostructured titanate coatings, relevant for biomedical applications.
