γ-Aminopropyltriethoxysilane (γ-APS) was grafted on stainless-steel and titanium substrates, and subsequently alginic acid layer was immobilized on them. Their surfaces were characterized with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and contact angle measurement. Blood compatibility of thus obtained substrates was evaluated in terms of both the number of the adhered platelets and blood clotting factors for plasma contacted with the substrates such as active partial thromboplastin time (PTT), prothrombin time (PT), and amount of fibrinogen (Fib). The steel and titanium substrates with alginic acid layer did not affect blood clotting factors. In vitro platelet adhesion assay indicated that those substrates adhered less number of platelets than non-treated substrates. Hence the alginic acid immobilization leads to blood compatible surfaces.
