Medical devices often have poor surface properties which results in different problems such as discomfort (poor wetting and low lubricity) and increased infection risk (high fouling). The patented coating developed by LipoCoat tackles these problems with an elegant solution.
By mimicking the natural cell membrane consisting of a phospholipid bilayer, biocompatible and high performance medical device coatings can be prepared. In nature, the cell membrane, more specifically the phospholipid bilayer, serves as a universal interface between distinct chemical environments.
