A solvent-based film delivers an antimicrobial agent
© ETH [dim_it:pic_desc]Last but not least: a self-disinfecting film that can be stuck, for example, to door handles and sanitaryware is an effective way to prevent germs from being passed on in hospitals. It has been developed at the Institute for Chemistry and Bioengineering Sciences at Zurich Technical University (ETH) in Switzerland. The film is coated with silver and calcium phosphate; according to ETH, the combination of both substances is up to 1,000 times more deadly to Escherichia coli than conventional silver products.
