Foley's catheters were coated with Silver (Ag), plasma polymerized aniline (PPAni) and Ag-PPAni composite by plasma based deposition processes which were characterized by XRD, EDX, SEM, and FT-IR spectroscopy and bioassays were performed to validate their efficacies to kill planktonic cells as well as to remove biofilm. The analyses confirmed the formation(More)
The effectiveness of the metal oxide nanoparticles viz. CuO and Fe2O3 as antibacterial agents against multidrug resistant biofilm forming bacteria was evaluated. CuO nanoparticles were also experimented for antibiofilm and time kill assay. The CuO displayed maximum antibacterial activity with zone of inhibition of (22 ± 1) mm against methicillin resistant(More)
This work demonstrates the efficacy of a support matrix prepared by plasma process for trypsin immobilization without any surface activator. Plasma polymerization cum sputtering process is used to prepare the nanocomposite support matrix. Plasma sputtered silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are uniformly embedded into plasma polymerized aniline (PPAni) film.(More)
