Monash University researchers develop new antimicrobial surface that reduces bacterial build-up on medical equipment

Monash University researchers have engineered new antimicrobial surfaces that can significantly reduce the formation of bacteria on medical instruments, such as urinary catheters, and reduce the risk of patient infection while in hospital.

This world-first study demonstrates the potential for 3D engineered surfaces in preventing the initial formation of microcolonies of Escherichiacoli (E.coli), Klebsiellapneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa – the three most common urinary tract bacterial infections (UTIs) associated with catheters.
