Responses of cell lines and primary monocytes to hydrogel and silicone materials in standard cultures or in biomimetic 3D collagen gel systems were analyzed. Hydrogel and silicone substrates were physically characterized and mechanically tested. Mechanical responses were compared with contact models for homogeneous elastic substrates and elastic substrates with surface tension. Pharmacological treatments and surfactants were used to test possible mechanisms of action.
