Micro fabrication of cell culture substrates is one of the most significant subjects in the field of biomaterial research. Recently we found that endothelial cells can grow rapidly on a microporous polymer film (honeycomb film). In order to elucidate the effect of honeycomb films as a scaffold for cell culture, the observation of the honeycomb films during cell culture is needed. It was found that the topological and adsorbed protein structure on honeycomb films were greatly changed by conditioning. Further development of this approach should lead to surfaces which can be controlled cell proliferation by conditioning of surface structure on honeycomb films.
