Hemocompatible biomimetic surfaces

Molecules presenting phosphorylcholine groups have been proven to significantly increase material hemocompatibility. In the presented modification method we applied soybean-derived phosphatidylcholine, which turn out to be a promising alternative for its synthetic analogues. We also propose a new standard for testing material’s hemocompatibility, which involve contact with human blood under dynamic conditions. This method reflects the exact conditions of arterial flow. The modified materials incubated with human plasma exhibited high repellency toward fibrinogen and platelets. The analysis of blood-materials interactions performed under arterial-flow simulated conditions confirmed excellent hemocompatibility of the coating.
