Figure 8. Growth of hRPE cell line on 2% alginate film 10 DIV. (a) hRPE cells on 2% alginate film gelatinized with 1% NCCM. (b) hRPE cells on 2% alginate film, gelatinized with 10% NCCM. hRPE cell line showed a faster growth rate and made larger colonies on 2% (v/w) alginate film, gelatinized with ×1 (NCCM). Magnifications ×50. hRPE, human retinal pigment epithelial; NCCM, neurobasal cell culture medium.
