Hydrophilic coatings for biomedical applications in and ex vivo

P. Wyman,     DSM Biomedical Materials, the Netherlands

Abstract:

Hydrophilic coatings are applied to a wide range of surfaces of biomaterials. This chapter addresses the need for coatings in both in- and ex-vivo settings for both blood-contacting and non-blood-contacting applications, with illustrations of the coating chemistry used in each setting. Applications for non-fouling surfaces in diagnostics, lubricious surfaces on cardiovascular devices, and both lubricious and antimicrobial hydrophilic surfaces for urological applications are presented. Processes using both photochemical grafting and addition cure technologies to generate hydrophilic surfaces are outlined, and ...
