On the contrary, the receding CA, θrec, is sensitive to the hydrophilic surface component since the water is trying to dewet the surface and the hydrophilic region will try to keep the water from dewetting [40]. 1 Dynamic sessile drop Dynamic sessile drop is very similar to the static sessile method. A small drop of water is carefully added on top of the polymer surface by a microsyringe with a very thin ­needle. The needle is kept inside of the water droplet after the droplet is settled. A computer program controls the syringe to add a very small quantity of water to the existing droplet to gradually expand the size of the droplet while the contact area between water and polymer is kept the same.

Brash et al. 24). Heparin is the most widely used thrombin inhibitor via both systematic administration and surface modification. The mechanism of such inhibition is well established. Heparin can preferentially bind to antithrombin. Antithrombin, which undergoes a conformational change, will bind and inhibit thrombin. After the antithrombin/thrombin complex (ATH) is formed, heparin is released and another binding cycle with antithrombin begins [138]. Brash created isocyanate groups on a Tecothane™ surface via allophanate bond formation between MDI and urethane hydrogen.
