A tendency towards unification of adsorption properties of hemocompatible hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces within the first minutes of contact with protein was demonstrated. Nevertheless the change of adsorption properties of blood compatible hydrophilic surface after passivation with proteins is much less in comparison with the one for blood compatible hydrophobic surface.
