mon·o·lay·ers

(mon'ō-lā'ĕrz),
1. Films, one molecule thick, formed on water (or other surfaces) by certain substances, such as proteins and fatty acids, characterized by molecules containing some atom groupings that are soluble in water and other atom groupings that are insoluble in water.
2. A confluent sheet of cells, one cell deep, growing on a surface in a cell culture.
