Williams Joel L, Dunn Terry S, O& 039, Connell James P, Montgomery David: Heparinization of plasma treated substrates.. Becton Dickinson Co, November 7, 1984: EP0124200-A2 (19 worldwide citation)

Improved antithrombogenicity results when heparin is attached to a polymeric surface activated by treatment with a plasma. The surface thus activated is rendered receptive to the binding of a surface active agent. The surface active agent in turn reacts with heparin to provide a polymeric surface of ...
