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.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
