New Technologies

We’re seeing all sorts of advances in fighting MRSA lately! AdvanSource Biomaterials Corporation recently received a patent for antimicrobial polyurethane resins, which can be used structurally or as coatings in different kinds of catheters, and are intended to help combat methicilin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections.

Also, on the heels of the emergence of the NDM-1 gene, BioScience Laboratories announced that they’ve obtained seven clinical isolates of Carbapenem-Resistant (CR) Klebsiella pneumonia and Escherichia coli. BioScience Laboratories intends to use these isolates to test products for their predicted efficacy against bacteria containing the NDM-1 gene.
