Surface contaminations can involve the formation of a bacterial biofilm. Biofilms inhibit the penetration of antimicrobial agents and are therefore harder to clear than normal infections. A new method for creating anti-bacterial coatings has been developed using covalent attachment of anti-biofilm peptides to hardened metal surfaces.
