The deactivation of active oxygen species except NO was discussed. The deactivation was observed in the presence of some blood compatible metals used in clinical fields by simple colorimetry. The blood compatibility was evaluated clinically in terms of partial thromboplastin time (PTT), prothrombin time (PT) and amount of fibrinogen. It was found that the stainless steel (SUS316) and Ti were inert against most of the active oxygen species.
