Epub 2016 May 9.A low-fouling zwitterionic surface strategy has been proven to be promising and effective for repelling nonspecific adsorption of proteins, cells and bacteria, which may eventually induce adverse pathogenic problems such as thrombosis and infection. Herein, a multi-step process was developed by a combination of mussel-inspired chemistry and surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) technique for improving hemocompatible and anti-biofouling properties.
