Effect of Iron-Oxide Nanoparticles over Biofilm Growth on Polymer Brush Coated Surface.
The water contact angles of biomaterial and polymer brush coated surfaces are shown in Figure 1.
Initial adhesion of bacteria after 30 min of incubation was significantly (P < 0.05) reduced on polymer brush coated surfaces compared to bare surfaces (Figure 3).
Influence of iron-oxide nanoparticles at different concentrations against biofilm growth on polymer brush coated surface was shown in Figure 4.
This paper presents the experimental study on the bacterial adhesion and biofilm growth on various biomaterials including polymer brush coated surfaces and the strategy of using iron-oxide nanoparticles in eradication of biofilms.
