Abstract: This research aims to develop a cell coating on polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) to study the response of corneal epithelial cells to mechanical stress. PDMS is a highly hydrophobic silicone elastomer, which despite its excellent mechanical properties is an unattractive surface for cell adhesion. In order to promote cell adhesion onto PDMS, a cold atmospheric-pressure plasma treatment has been used to modify the surface properties of the PDMS without affecting its bulk mechanical characteristics.
