GE Healthcare of Uppsala, Sweden, has received US Patent No. 8,093,005, "Preparation and use of a reactive solid support surface." The described method calls for providing a solid support having a hydrogel coating with binding elements; coupling a protein-resistant compound to the hydrogel via a first fraction of the binding elements, and coupling at least one binding agent to the hydrogel via a second fraction of the binding elements, where the protein-resistant compound and the binding agent are co-immobilized to the hydrogel.
