Substratum topography and cell traction on sulphuric acid treated bacteriological-grade plastic [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
ABSTRACT Treatment of bacteriological-grade plastic with concentrated sulphuric acid is a well known technique which increases the wettability of the surface and renders it suitable for eukaryotic cell adhesion. We have noticed that these substrata present a distinctive surface topography in the presence of a serum supplement under normal culture conditions. The adsorbed serum layer is comprised of fine furrows and ridges and the influence of adherent cells on this layer leads to minute tears and distortions in the direction of the corrugations. This provides a novel system for the investigation of cell spreading and locomotion by scanning electron microscopy.
