What is it about?
Our research focuses on modifying the surface properties of PUMA & OSTE with nitrogen and argon gas plasma treatment. Both plasma treated substrates possess the necessary chemical and physical properties to be further developed as a potential biochip.
Why is it important?
Native PUMA & OSTE are not biocompatible. Thus, plasma treatments insert nitrogen groups which are more hospitable for endothelial cells grows on the OSTE and PUMA.
