PhotoLink technology provides true covalent chemical bonding of the coating to the device substrate.

Surmodics has a long history of working with hemocompatible coatings. Our heparin coatings are featured on a number of approved and commercially available medical devices. We offer hemocompatible coatings in addition to heparin, and are continually researching new technologies.
