Re: Developing resistance?

Promising technology and also very good question. What is the active method used for its anti-bacterial properties? Can bacteria evolve over time to become resistant to this technique?

Developing resistance?

Bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics; many formerly effective medicines are no longer because of this.

Will bacteria be able to develop resistance to this coating over time in the same way they did to antibiotics?

This is an important step forward. The number of bacterial infections in hospitals and nursing homes is off the charts. Anything that can help, even in a small way, is welcomed.

antimicrobial coating for medical devices

Since microRESIST can be used to protect any device or component where antimicrobial protection is critical to its use, such as catheters, electro-stimulators, and endotracheal tubes, this will really enhance patient safety and improve clinical workflow. But for acceptability it is important to evaluate the clinical test data of microRESIST.
