Dutch researchers successfully 3D print new type of antibacterial bone implant

Researchers from the Delft University of Technology have designed and printed a porous titanium bone implant with antibacterial properties. Leveraging a novel biofunctionalization method called plasma electrolytic oxidation, the team was able to load the implant with strontium and silver nanoparticles, eradicating the notoriously resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria within 24 hours. The researchers believe the […]
