Abstract

Cell culture is a powerful in vitro characterization technique to optimize the properties of a biomaterial for in vivo biomedical use by conversely revealing potential sources of cytotoxicity. A comprehensive literature survey of the range of cell types cultured on porous silicon is given, together with a discussion of how surface chemistry, topography, and porosity gradients affect cell behavior.
