Active Biofouling Control System (Medical)

Duke Researchershave deviseddynamic topological surface technologies to control biofilm and wound capsule formation typical to medical devices.  Using these methods, they have also developed low-cost catheter technology that actively removes biofilms from lumenal surfaces.  For more info click here .
