Biofouling of dextran-derivative layers investigated by quartz crystal microbalance.


This study reports the fouling of carboxymethyl dextran (CMD) layers in cell culture medium, fibronectin, and serum solutions. CMD layers were covalently immobilized onto amine groups available either on an n-heptylamine plasma polymer (HApp) layer or onto a polyethylenimine (PEI) coating grafted to an acetaldehyde plasma polymer (AApp) layer.
