During hemocompatibility testing, activation products may reach plateau values which can result in less distinction between hemocompatible and hemo-incompatible materials. Of concern is an underestimation of the blood activation caused by the biomaterial of interest, which may result in a false assessment of hemocompatibility. To elucidate the opti...

Hemocompatibility of blood contacting medical devices has to be evaluated before their intended application. To assess hemocompatibility, blood flow models are often used and can either consist of in vivo animal models or in vitro blood flow models. Given the disadvantages of animal models, in vitro blood flow models are an attractive alternative....

The use of unactivated blood for hemocompatibility testing is essential to obtain reliable results. Here, the authors study the influence of heparinized whole blood storage time and temperature on blood activation and evaluate the importance of initiating hemocompatibility tests within 4 h of blood collection. Blood from healthy volunteers was coll...
