INCREASING THE COST-EFFECTIVENESS OF IN VITRO RESEARCH THROUGH THE USE OF TITANIUM IN THE DEVICE FOR MEASURING THE ELECTRICAL PARAMETERS OF CELLS


Abstract

Currently, various methods are used to assess the biocompatibility of materials. After an in-depth and detailed review of the literature, the method used in the research was selected. As part of the experiments, a method based on the analysis of the values ​​of electrical parameters of cell cultures measured in the presence of electrodes was used. The electrode is a structure made of a thin layer of metallization. It measures the change in resistance, impedance and capacity of a mixture of cells and the substance in which they are grown. The plate containing the electrode assembly is called the measurement matrix. Currently, commercially used test matrices are made of gold or platinum. However, their high price means that large-scale research is significantly limited. In order to increase the access to the widespread use of this method, it was decided that it was necessary to use cheaper materials, reducing the necessary costs of conducting experiments. Considering this, an attempt was made to use a different conductive material to build matrices compatible with the ECIS® Z-Theta measurement system. Their use would enable in vitro research on living cells. In the presented work, titanium was used as a material that may turn out to be an alternative to the materials currently used. Its application to the production of matrices will allow to study the influence of this metal on the behavior of cells.
