Non-stick coating gives biofilms the slip A new class of material has been created that bacteria find incredibly hard to stick to. An estimated 80% of infections acquired in hospitals involve sticky biofilms of bacteria that build up on surfaces and it is challenging is to reduce their growth on medical devices, such as catheters. mark for My Articles 82 similar articles
