In this work we describe the characterization of anti-myoglobin immobilization on 3C-SiC (100) by means of surface modification with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES). Surface water contact angle measurements were used to compare the wettability of 3C-SiC (100) before (16 ±3°) and after APTES layer formation (61 ±1°). Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to confirm the homogenous formation of APTES and anti-myoglobin immobilization with EDC-sulfo NHS coupling. For the APTES surfaces no significant change in the surface roughness was obtained whereas with anti-myoglobin surfaces, particles on the order of ∼60 nm in diameter with a globular shape were observed.
