Hemocompatible Coating Technology

Surmodics uses PhotoLink® technology to apply a variety of hemocompatible coatings to many different kinds of medical devices. Light-activated chemistry coats substrates to improve blood compatibility.

When it comes to hemocompatible hydrophilic coating alternatives, Surmodics doesn’t limit your choices. Active and passive coatings are customizable to your specific blood compatibility and durability requirements. Simply tell us what you need and our medical device coatings team will deliver a solution.

Surmodics offers a heparin coating that is used on commercially available medical devices. Working with a company that has expertise in this area can make your regulatory pathway smoother. In addition to heparin coatings, Surmodics also offers a passive commercially available hemocompatible coating and continues to develop other non-heparin coating options.

All hemocompatible coatings are applied with our PhotoLink process. This unique technology:

Uses light-activated chemistry to bond the coating to the substrate
Quickly and evenly coats nearly all medical-grade materials
Offers single- and multi-coat performance without lengthy curing times
Can be easily incorporated into existing manufacturing processes
Allows hemocompatible coatings to be combined with other coatings offering infection resistance, lubricity, and drug delivery
