Work and damage to the blood vessel. COF measurement is a simple method to test raw materials. 3). A polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tube is commonly used to simulate a blood vessel and is placed in a temperature-controlled water bath. The test sample (guide wire/catheter) is inserted into the PTFE tube by a proximal roller assembly. The pushing force versus advancement distance is measured and plotted to show the trackability of the sample. 2 Contact angle When a drop of liquid is sitting on a flat, horizontal solid surface, the CA is defined as the angle formed by the intersection of the liquid–solid interface and liquid–gas interface.
