Use of pooled blood plasmas in the assessment of fouling resistance

Author affiliations

Abstract

The ability of a surface to resist fouling from blood plasma cannot be realistically estimated without measuring adsorption from real samples directly. Due to the variability of biological samples, pooled blood plasma is normally used. We show that even when using pooled plasma, a comparison of antifouling surfaces strongly depends on its source.
