Modifying surfaces by means of nanostructured reliefs to prevent the spread of bacteria

Description (Elhuyar Fundazioa) Researchers at the Agrobiotechnology Institute of Navarre are designing nanostructured reliefs on surfaces. The idea is to enable these surfaces to acquire antibacterial properties and make them more resistant to the formation of bacterial biofilms. The authors of the research say that in the preliminary tests carried out so far with the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus a reduction in the region of 65-70 percent has been confirmed in the adhesion of bacteria.
