Abstract The adhesion of platelets, red blood cells, and lymphocytes onto various polymer substrates, hydrophobic to hydrophilic in nature, has been studied. Cell adhesion is found to be higher on hydrophilic substrates. The stability of these adhered cells has also been studied under a flow rate of 20 ml/min. Further the effect of glow discharge treatment onto various substrates is investigated. It seems the stability is more on glow discharge treated substrates due to increased surface free energy.
