High-resolution imaging of cellular processes across textured surfaces using an indexed-matched elastomer
(Andrea Ravasio et al, November 2014)
This publication describes the use of MY Polymers MY-134 (index = 1.34) for constructing a nano-textured surface for studying cell interaction with the environment. The match of MY-134 with the index of cells enables a significant improvement in imaging quality (*).
In this publication, the surface is covered by micro-pillars.
(*) BIO-134 is a new version of MY-134, which was designed for biological applications. It has significantly reduced cyto-toxicity and fluorescence.
