PhosphorylCholine (PC) coating...the Path of Biocompatibility...

Technical and Functional Features

PhosphorylCholine or PC is the predominant lipid head-group found in the outer layer of cell membranes.

PC has a natural affinity for water and binds water tightly around itself.

As a result, the outer layer of the cell membrane does not promote clot formation (thrombosis).

  • low thrombogenic
  • low inflammatory
  • stable
  • resistant to bacterial adhesion
  • resistant to protein deposition

The AGILE coating can be applied to any of our products as necessary.
