Due to the growing offer of candidate biomaterials there is a need of reliable, effective and quick biocompatibility tests. In this respect alternative techniques seem to be an attractive tool which significantly limits the number of experimental implantations to animal tissues. Moreover, it seems that testing procedures in vitro make possible observations of such aspects of implant-tissue interaction, which are difficult to observe by routine methods.
