Abstract Adsorption of fibrinogen on positively charged microspheres was theoretically and experimentally studied. The structure of monolayers and the maximum coverage were determined by applying the experimental measurements at pH = 3.5 and 9.7 for NaCl concentration in the range of 10^{-3} - 0.15 M. The maximum coverage of fibrinogen on latex particles was precisely determined by the AFM method. Unexpectedly, at pH = 3.5, where both fibrinogen molecule and the latex particles were positively charged, the maximum coverage varied between 0.9 mg m^{-2} and 1.1 mg m^{-2} for 10^{-2} and 0.15 M NaCl, respectively. On the other hand, at pH = 9.7, the maximum coverage of fibrinogen was larger, varying between 1.8 mg m^{-2} and 3.4 mg m^{-2} for 10^{-2} and 0.15 M NaCl, respectively. The experimental results were quantitatively interpreted by the numerical simulations.
