Blood-inert surfaces are achieved in human whole blood by a simple and robust method using ion-pair anchoring of diblock copolymers with well-defined zwitterionic and charged segments. A systematic investigation is performed to study how chain lengths and surface packing densities of zwitterionic polymer brushes affect blood compatibility. This provides a new class of materials to effectively control biofouling in complex media for charged biomaterials.
