Highly efficient cell capture and release with low background are urgently required for early diagnosis of diseases such as cancer. Herein, we report an electrochemical responsive superhydrophilic surface exhibiting specific cell capture and release with high yields and extremely low nonspecific adhesion. Through electrochemical deposition, 3-substituted thiophene derivatives are deposited onto indium tin oxide (ITO) nanowire arrays with 4-n-nonylbenzeneboronic acid (BA) as dopant, fabricating the electrochemical responsive superhydrophilic surfaces. The molecular recognition between sialic acids over-expressed on the cell membrane and doped BAs endows the electrochemical responsive surfaces with the ability to capture and release targeted cancer cells. By adjusting the substituent group of thiophene derivatives, the surface wettability can be readily regulated and further utilized for reducing nonspecific cell adhesion. Significantly, the released cells still maintain a high proliferation ability, which indicates that the applied potential does not significantly harm the cells. Therefore, these results may provide a new strategy to achieve advanced functions of biomedical materials, such as low nonspecific adhesion.
