Due to their broad range of application and resulting benefits for human health, biomaterials have attracted great interest over the last few decades. In order to guarantee their appropriate performance, in vivo and in vitro testing can be carried out. While in vivo testing yields more accurate results, its high level of complexity and cost makes in vitro testing an attractive alternative. One of the main deficiencies of in vitro testing, however, is its inability to mimic the blood plasma environment. Specifically, solutions that are being used in in vitro testing lack the organic components, which are present in the blood plasma.
Our goal is to improve/evaluate in vitro testing by addition of organic components to the in vitro testing protocol and by systematically evaluating their effect with simultaneous in silico computational studies. While a lot of computational research has been done on the adsorption of organic species on different surfaces, the choice of aqueous solution often seems arbitrary and tends to be pure water in most cases.
