Abstract: The topic of our studies is to improve the antibacterial properties of Copper-ion-Implantation of implant surfaces. Nosocomial infections have been documented with significant frequently on surfaces of medical implants. There has been much research on the development of antibacterial coatings for medical devices. Our coating relies on release of copper ions, which limits the duration of antimicrobial action.
