  • Antimicrobial Technology Enhances Metal Coatings
    Antimicrobial materials based on metal complexes have become an effective weapon in the war against the deadly microbes that cause food-borne illnesses, hospital infections and contaminated drugs. Yet these antimicrobial materials have shown a limited ability to deliver microbe resistance as part
  • Medical Device Link .
    to vancomycin, which is deemed to be the drug of "last resort " when treatments with other antibiotics have failed, emphasise the need for antimicrobial-equipped medical devices. The demands on those new devices are complex ( ). The product should display broad antimicrobial activity against various
  • Medical Device Link .
    While basic hygiene procedures are the major factor in controlling bacterial infections, the use of antimicrobial systems in plastics can offer added protection at the product level. Two new silver-ion products from plastics suppliers promise to give medical devices antimicrobial qualities
  • Medical Device Link .
    Though the increase of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria may pose an imminent threat, it is too soon to raise the white flag of surrender. Several developments in curbing infections contracted while in the hospital have been announced. They are in the form of a coating and a surface treatment
  • Medical Device Link .
    Antimicrobial-Coated Fabric Combats Harmful Bacteria Hospital-related infections are on the rise and pose a significant threat to patients due to mutations that have left bacteria immune to many common antibiotics. In light of mounting concern in the medical industry, (Miami, FL) has developed
  • NHBB Introduces Anti-Bacterial High-Speed Bearings
    the industry's first ultra-high speed bearing with anti-bacterial properties. Ball bearings are an integral part of all rotational cutting tools used in surgical practice, medical and dental offices.
