Abstract:

This project aims to establish an antimicrobial and biocompatible copper coating for a standard issue antimicrobial combat wound dressing. This initial one-year project was done to provide important foundational data that will guide subsequent research efforts and position the technology for commercial development. As part of these efforts, iFyber established a number of coating parameters a number of candidate dressings that have a range of in vitro antimicrobial efficacy and biocompatibility performance metrics. Best performing candidates were shown to be biocompatible through an in vivo sensitization study and effective against a number of clinical bacterial isolates.
