Fewer infections in hospitals

ID: F1512-02

One in 10 hospital customers are impacted by nosocomial infections. The outcome is an expansion of hospital stays by more than 10 million patient days per year in European countries alone. Impregnating hospital textiles, such as bedding and bandages, with antibacterial nanoparticles, would considerably decrease hospital-acquired infections, enhance client outcomes and save millions of euros. To attain this, a project expanded on a recently proven and patented single-step laboratory procedure.  This involved impregnating the textiles with copper oxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles. Nanoparticle-coated materials had been tested and displayed effective anti-bacterial properties and great longevity. The pilot plants showed that this might be an effective method of creating textiles with strong anti-bacterial attributes. Scientists found that steel oxide nanoparticles can destroy both sensitive bacteria and germs that are resistant to antibiotics. To demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of antibacterial nanoparticles in a medical center environment. Earlier to this research, no chemical treatment for producing and impregnating textiles with antibacterial nanoparticles existed on an industrial scale. Many thanks to this task, antibacterial textiles will be manufactured by a one-step process that makes use of nanoparticles. This decreases production time and fibre damage, lowers production costs and utilizes an environmentally friendly water solution. Textile manufacturers today have all they require to move up commercialisation efforts.
