Author(s): J. Bautista-Ruiz, E. Ruiz, J. Duque, W. Aperador and J. J. Olaya

In this article, the biocompatibility Bismuth-titanium coatings is evaluated. The thin films were obtained by the sol-gel method in different concentrations of the precursors, and deposited by spin-coating onto substrates AISI 316 L. The biocompatibility testing as cell adhesion and cytotoxicity as MTT(3-(4,5)- dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide) were performed by fibroblasts cells and the osteoblast cell line for establishing biocompatibility levels in both cell types and therefore, establish the possible applications in the field of medicine.
