Using chemical vapor deposition co-polymerization, we have developed a simple strategy towards multi-functional surfaces presenting two different biological ligands in controllable ratios. These modularly designable polymer coatings are applicable to a wide range of biomedical devices including microanalytical or diagnostic systems.

Vapor-based alkyne-containing polymer coatings have showed remarkable reactivity towards azides via the chemoselective Huisgen’s 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition. As a flexible bioconjugation platform, this regioselective immobilization strategy could be applicable in the design of biofunctional surfaces for diagnostics (e.g. microarrays), biosensors, and biomedical device coatings.
