We examined blood compatibility of titanium oxide layer on stainless-steel (SUS316L). The oxide layers with varied thickness were yielded on SUS316L plates by dip-coating of sol-gel solution starting from tetraethyltitanate. The blood compatibility was evaluated in term of platelet adhesion using platelet rich plasma. With increase in the thickness of the oxide layer, the number of adherent platelets decreased rapidly, reached minimum around 150nm. This indicated that the thickness of titanium oxide layer affected platelet adhesion.
