The surface you select for your precoated cultureware affects cell morphology, phenotype, and function, so it's essential that you get it right for upstream and downstream cell culture applications. By using the optimal cell type surface in your research, you can control variables in experimental data, more closely mimic in vivo conditions, promote cell growth, and achieve the desired endpoints.
Surface selection, though, isn't always straightforward. The options seem endless, and many have overlapping characteristics. It can be hard to determine what works best for your needs. This guide can help.
