SummaryAdsorption of albumin, 7-globulin, and fibrinogen from solution, under both static and flow conditions, onto several hydrophobic polymers was studied using internal reflection infrared spectroscopy. Isotherm curves experimentally found were consistant with Langmuir type adsorption. The rate and amount of protein adsorbed was found to be dependent upon both the natLire of the polymer substrate and on the flow rate of the solution.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
