      I am testing my coatings on a bacteria called Staphyloccus Aureus but the hope is that it would stop most types of bacteria growing. The coating is being designed for orthopaedic implants so ones that go into your bones but they could be used on any rigid material that would go into the body, just because if the material was too bendy the coating will crack!
