Silver ion antimicrobial technology makes all kinds of medical surfaces inhospitable to pathogenic microorganisms.
Additives can be simply and cost effectively incorporated into a variety of substrates such as polycarbonate and ABS during the manufacturing process and exert, by either chemical or mechanical means, a negative effect on any contaminating microbe causing them to die.
Consequently, multi-modal antimicrobial silver is effective against a wide range of leading superbugs, including MRSA, the article said.
