Argon ions were implanted on titanium discs to study its effect on bone cell adhesion and proli feration. Polished titanium discs were prepared and implanted with argon ions with different doses. Afterwards the samples were sterilized using UV light, inocu lated with human bone cells and incubated. Once fixed and rinsed, image analysis has been used to quantify the number of cells attached to the titanium discs. Cell proliferation tests were also conducted after a period of 120 hours. Cell adhesion was seen to be higher with ion im planted surface. SEM analysis has shown that the cells attached spread more on ion implanted surface. The numbers of cells attached were seen to be higher on implanted surfaces; they tend to occupy wider areas with healthier cells.
