The microbiological hazard to staff of used instruments and equipment when returned to the HSDU appears to be small providing reasonable precautions are taken (Parsons et al, 1985). Nevertheless, little evidence is available on the contamination of used equipment or the efficiency of cleaning and disinfection methods.
Naturally occurring metal surfaces possess planes of mirror symmetry on the nanometer-length scale. This mirror symmetry can be lifted and chirality "physically" conveyed onto a surface by adsorbing a chiral molecule. Until now, it has not been known whether the conveying of chirality is limited to just the physical structure or whether it goes deeper and(More)
