Macrophage biocorrosion evaluated by atomic emission
Mississippi State University-based researchers reported on the macrophage-mediated biocorrosion of a Co-Cr-Mo implant alloy in vitro. Corrosion was evaluated by measuring total charge transfer at a constant potential using a potentiostat, and metal ion release by atomic emission spectroscopy. Alloy corrosion properties were enhanced by observing the open circuit potential (OCP), charge transfer, metal ion release, and changes in surface oxides. Effects of corrosion on the cells were determined by evaluating proliferation, viability, and metabolism.
