System for surface microstructuring using photopatterning. Photopatterning is used to control the geometry of cells, whose shape is variable, making it easier to produce statistics when a particular parameter is being studied. Research scientists use this to study how the mechanical properties of cells contribute to various processes, including infection in particular.
