Hands on training on nanocoating for blood repellent medical devices

About programme

Blood-repellent surfaces are needed in medical devices that come in contact with blood which include implants that are placed in the human body, such as artificial valves and stents, and also medical devices that are used to handle blood outside the patient, for example, diagnostics, blood bags, and dialysis devices. The older approach is to use different types of antithrombotic surface treatments, such as heparin, to prevent blood coagulation. However, these coatings are prone to wear off and hence not viable. Nanotechnology can give an effective solution for this through producing blood repellency via micro and nanostructures instead of a biochemical coating. Blood is a challenging liquid to repel and many R&D works in developing biomedical devices are facing this challenge. This is a frontier sector where many research scopes are available.
