Much less attention has been paid to endothelial cell coating of Polymethylpentene (TPX). As it can be produced in thinner layers and thus allows higher gas transfer rates, it is presentlya better choice for oxygenator membranes but also highly expensive and difficult to process. Though our group as well. Have shown some initial success in coating TPX with endothelial cells via adsorbed Fibronectin or covalently bond RGD peptides, this work is in its early stages.
