There is the need to develop a compatible sterilisation method for hybrid biomaterials. High-intensity blue light in the 405 nm region has been shown to be an effective bacterial decontamination method , to cause no noticeable damage to the gross structure of type-I collagen monomer (when treated at 10 mW/cm2) , and to have no noticeable effect on 3T3 cell viability, growth rate, redox state or lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage (at 1.0 mW/cm2) . The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of varying the blue-light intensity on the 3T3 cell response parameters.
