Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

An integrated high-throughput polymer synthesis and rapid material/protein/cell interaction assays were developed to optimize stem cell microenvironments. Microarrayed polymers were synthesized and studied for the ability to support the growth of partially differentiated human embryonic stem cells. In parallel, a programmed laser scanning cytometry system was developed to allow for rapid quantification of cell material interaction.
