Always more often, stainless steel equipments are present in our hospital facilities. And it is not a case.

Thanks to a recent discovery (due to a Spanish scientist), stainless steel applications in hospital could increase… With this new solution, scientists have developed a way to modify the surface of the stainless steel by creating a set of pores at the nanoscale and consequently to increase control of bacterial infections in hospitals.

This new way in fact, could be a tool to fight against the spread of bacteria in hospital environments. From now on, everything that is made of stainless steel in hospitals, for example door handles, instruments or operating tables, will must be treated in this way.
