Summary The recent discovery of arsenic-based high temperature superconductors has reignited interest in the study of superconductor: biological interfaces. However, the new superconductor materials involve the chemistry of arsenic and their toxicity remains unclear [Hand, E., 2008. Nature 452 (24), 922]. In this study the possible adverse effects of this new family of superconductors on cells have been examined. Cell culture studies in conjunction with microscopy and viability assays were employed to examine the influence of arsenic-based superconductor PrOxFeAs (x = 0.75) material in vitro. Imaging data revealed that cells were well adhered and spread on the surface of the superconductor. Furthermore, cytotoxicity studies showed that cells were unaffected during the time-course of the experiments, providing support for the biocompatibility aspects of PrOxFeAs-based superconductor material.
