Construction of Transparent Superhydrophilic–Superhydrophobic Micropatterns for High-Throughput Living Cell Imaging
Transparent superhydrophilic–superhydrophobic micropatterns are realized by electrochemically anodizing a radio frequency (RF) sputtered Ti film on indium tin oxide (ITO), followed by surface modification of PTES self-assembling on a TiO2 nanoporous film, and photocatalytic lithography through a photomask. Well-aligned octacalcium phosphate (OCP) and silver micropatterns are constructed by introducing the compounds onto the superhydrophilic regions exclusively. Further cell culture and bactericidal test demonstrate that such micropatterns facilitate the high-throughput and in-situ screen in biomedical applications.
