|Add 2 µM calcein AM and 4 µM EthD-1.
Incubate the cells for 30–45 minutes at room temperature
Six culture substrates of Ti-Ap, H2O2–Ti-Ap, 300 °C-Ti-Ap, or Ti were placed on each well of a 24-well TCPS plate. Among these substrates, three were used for measuring cell attachment areas while the remaining three substrates were used for the evaluation of osteogenic differentiation. Rat MSCs were seeded on each cell culture substrate at a density of 4 × 104 cells ml−1 (1 ml well−1). For measuring the attachment areas of live cells, cells were prestained using a LIVE/DEAD viability/cytotoxicity assay kit. The cells attached to the surface of each culture substrate were observed 2 h after seeding under an objective fluorescence microscope (Olympus, Model BX51). Live cells stained with calcein-AM appeared green owing to intracellular esterase activity, while dead cells stained with EthD-1 appeared red owing to plasma membrane disintegrity. The attachment area of live cells on each cell culture substrate was measured using Image-Pro® PLUS software (Media Cybernetics, Inc., Version 7.0). Cell attachment areas between 350 and 3500 μm2 were used for analysis. Features smaller than 350 μm2 were regarded as dust particles and discarded. Areas larger than 3500 μm2 were regarded as multiply connected cells and discarded too. Full paper
