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.

A Frost & Sullivan study finds that increased cyber attacks are prompting a flurry of innovative protection tools.
Devices and interconnected systems are finding a foothold not only in our homes but in mainstream organizations. Here are three tips to mitigate the risk.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
