The impact of heparinoid characteristics on model surfaces obtained from immobilization of either sole sulfate groups, sulfated glycosides, sulfated cellulose and definite heparin was investigated. The obtained layers were physico-chemically characterized regarding film thickness, chemical composition, wettability and surface morphology. The antithrombin adsorption, studied by fuorescence labelling, revealed a strong dependence on the presence of glycosidic structures and on the molecular weight of the grafted saccharide. In contact with whole blood, the coatings resulted in a diminished plasmatic and cellular coagulation in vitro, which did not reflect well the antithrombin binding. Therefore, more complex activating pathways are discussed.
