New progress in antibacterial polyurethane coatings for medical catheters

Intravascular catheter coatings prepared by researchers loaded uranofin with polyurethane materials have excellent antibacterial and anti-biofilm properties. In vitro tests have shown that the coating can completely inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus (see below). ), The effect is better than other similar studies at present, and the coating has very good biocompatibility, which is expected to enter clinical trials to prevent bloodstream infections (CRBSIs). In terms of materials, the coating made of Texin RxT85A medical grade PU is very flexible and can be stretched 5 times, which is very suitable for hose coating.
