Functionalization of polydimethylsiloxane and stainless steel surfaces with disinfectants

Microbial adhesion onto surfaces is at the root of serious problems in many areas, often compromising the disinfection practices. In clinical settings, microorganisms can colonize abiotic surfaces, equipment and medical devices. This problem is aggravated when microorganisms adopt a sessile lifestyle and live in biofilms. The best approach to prevent the occurrence of cell adhesion and biofilm formation, with subsequent spread of microorganisms between equipment and people, relies on the development of materials able to resist their colonization in first place.
