Abstract

Varying adhesion levels in chondrocytes were quantified using the cytodetacher. The sensitivity of the cytodetacher was gauged by detaching live rabit chondrocytes seeded for varying amounts of time. Results validated the hypothesis that fixed cells were characterized by greater mechanical adhesiveness and interface stiffness. This study showed that the cytodetacher provided adequate resolution in measuring the mechanical adhesion properties of single cells.
