Summary of "A method to assess influence of different medical tubing on biofilm formation by Acinetobacter baumannii."

In this study, we developed a method to assess influence of different medical tubing on biofilm formation by A. baumannii. The results of biofilm quantification and scanning electron microscopy showed that the biofilm formation susceptibility of different tubing materials was rubber latex > polyvinyl chloride > silicone.

Influence of Laboratory Culture Media on In-vitro Growth, Adhesion and Biofilm Formation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus dual species biofilm infections are notoriously difficult to manage. This study was aimed at investigating the influence of four different culture medi...

Periodicities in the roughness and biofilm growth on glass substrate with etching time: Hydrofluoric acid etchant.

Adherence of the microorganism to submerged solid surfaces leads to biofilm formation. Biofilm formation modifies the surfaces in favor of bacteria facilitating the survival of the bacteria under diff...

Reactive oxygen species inhibit biofilm formation of Listeria monocytogenes.

Although the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is altered upon the formation of bacterial biofilm, the relationship between ROS alteration and biofilm formation is still unclear. The aim of the p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A polyvinyl resin used extensively in the manufacture of plastics, including medical devices, tubing, and other packaging. It is also used as a rubber substitute.

A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.

A method of simultaneously imaging and measuring elements at the submicron level. Nuclear microscopy uses a focused high-energy ion beam of PROTONS and ALPHA PARTICLES (a nuclear microprobe) to interact with the sample. The resulting emitted radiations are analyzed by a group of techniques simultaneously: PARTICLE INDUCED X RAY EMISSION SPECTROMETRY for minor and trace element identification; Rutherford Backscattering Spectroscopy to assess sample thickness and bulk elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen; and Scanning Transmission Ion Microscopy to assess sample structure and density.

A method of providing future reproductive opportunities before a medical treatment with known risk of loss of fertility. Typically reproductive organs or tissues (e.g., sperm, egg, embryos and ovarian or testicular tissues) are cryopreserved for future use before the medical treatment (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation) begins.

Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
