[en] functional coating
[en] This invention relates to a method for modifying the surface of a material for use with a biological sample or tissue comprising the steps of providing a material having a surface which comprises reactive-functional groups; providing fluorinated molecules having reactive-functional groups complimentary to those on the material surface; using wet chemistry to attach the fluorinated molecules to the surface of the material by reacting the reactive-functional groups of the implant with the complementary reactive-functional groups of the fluorinated molecules. The invention also relates to materials modified by said method and to implants made using said materials.
