The spreading of cells on suitably treated surfaces is briefly discussed and the need to analyse this phenomenon numerically is emphasized. Possible mathematical models for fitting experimental data are classified as statistical, kinetic or empirical and examples of each of these types are given. A possible protocol for analysing cell spreading kinetics and determining goodness of fit and parameter redundancy is presented.
