We report the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of dual-functional polymer films for the specific and orthogonal immobilization of two biomolecules (notch ligand delta-like 1 (DLL1) and an RGD-peptide) that govern the fate of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. The composition of the CVD polymer and thus the biomolecule ratio can be tailored to investigate and optimize the influence of the relative surface concentrations of biomolecules on stem cell behavior. Prior to cell experiments, all surfaces were characterized by infrared reflection adsorption spectroscopy, time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy to confirm the presence of both biomolecules. In a proof-of-principle stem cell culture study, we show that all polymer surfaces are cytocompatible and that the proliferation of the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells is predominantly influenced by the surface concentration of immobilized DLL1.
