Which extracellular matrix works best for cell adhesion of the Strex stretch chambers? Fibronectin, gelatin, or collagen?

Cell adhesion to the stretch chamber membrane is entirely dependent on the cells bonding to the extracellular matrix coating. The cells themselves vary in adhesive properties from one cell type to another, and even vary between different cell lines of the same cell type. Therefore, before conducting any stretching experimentation or research, it is important to be aware of the adhesiveness and the required conditions for whatever coating is to be employed.
