The development of a silicone rubber surface inhibitory to the adherence of microorganisms
Price, Claire Louise
A second aspect to the study involved determining the surface roughness of a variety of commercially available urinary catheters and relating their roughness to the motility rates of P. mirabilis. Motility rate was highest on the roughest catheter surfaces (hydrogel and silver/hydrogel) suggesting that manufacturers should consider topographical features as well as antimicrobial coatings when attempting to combat microbial colonisation.
