In this study, we applied an ultra-water-repellent film to cell culture. We cultured cells in droplets on the film and fabricated cell aggregates. Furthermore, we allocated cells on micropatterned surfaces consisting of ultra-water-repellent regions and cell culture-treated regions. The results show that the material is useful for cell culture.
