Comparative picture (A) of thrombus covered BioFlo PICC, BARD PICC, LP/F-SAM PICC and FILP PICC after their exposure to 500 mL/min flow of sheep blood (heparin 1 IU /mL) for 4 h. Percentage of thrombus deposited area (B) on all four test samples. Activated clotting time and the quantified free floating clot at the end of the thrombogenicity test suggest no significant blood clotting happened during the 4 h period of blood circulation on FILP coated PICC.
