Hydrophilix has created a permanent ultra-thin coating for plastic that modifies its interfacial properties to make it extremely hydrophilic. Coated plastic will effectively be impervious to bio-fouling or bacterial colony formation. The technology therefore has numerous applications in healthcare, biotechnology and waste-water treatment. Recently, Hydrophilix won FDA approval for the use of their coating on urinary catheters – these will be the first on the market to carry near zero risk of infection.
