This study analyzes the adhesion behavior of the gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), and the gram negative bacteria, Escherichia coli (E. coli), on polypyrrole (PPY) surfaces in the presence of poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) chains and plasma proteins (bovine serum albumin and bovine plasma fibrinogen) either preadsorbed on the film surface or in the bacterial suspension. Bacterial adhesion experiments performed in a suspension of bacterial cells and protein… CONTINUE READING
