Abstract

Micropatterning is used widely in biosensor development, tissue engineering and basic biology. Creation of biological micropatterns typically involves multiple sequential steps which may lead to cross-contamination and contribute to suboptimal performance of the surface. Therefore, there is a need to develop novel strategies for characterizing location-specific chemical composition of biological micropatterns. In this paper, C60 + time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) operating in the event-by-event bombardment/detection mode was used for spatially resolved chemical analysis of micropatterned indium tin oxide (ITO) surfaces. Fabrication of the micropatterns involved multiple steps including self-assembly of poly(ethylene glycol)-silane (PEG-silane), patterning of photoresist, treatment with oxygen plasma and adsorption of collagen (I). The ITO surfaces were analyzed with 26-keV C60 + SIMS run in the event-by-event bombardment/detection mode at different steps of the modification process. We were able to evaluate the extent of cross-contamination between different steps and quantify coverage of the immobilized species. The methodology described here provides a novel means for characterizing the composition of biological micropatterns in a quantitative and spatially resolved manner.
