Abstract: The interaction of suspensions of washed pig platelets with nine artificial surfaces (glass, polystyrene, three segmented polyurethanes, and surfaces formed by coating glass with albumin, fibrinogen, gamma-globulin, and collagen) is reported. Platelet adhesion and release from adherent platelets were measured via labeling with 51Cr and 14C-serotonin. The apparatus was a couette flow device allowing observation of surface-platelet effects uncomplicated by transport or flow effects. Using a two-level factorial d…
