European Research Team Develop textiles to kill MRSA Superbug in Hospitals


Partners of a European Commission funded research project have developed textiles that will kill the MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) superbug. The European research team, BioElectricSurface (, has used nanomaterials that activate agents to kill MRSA on textiles used in hospital drapes*, bed linens and upholstery. Nanomaterials, which are a thousand times smaller than a human hair, are known to possess extra-ordinary physical and chemical properties.
