An ultra-slippery surface treatment known as SLIPS has been shown to keep bacterial biofilms from forming on treated materials
The SLIPS technology for preventing biofilm formation as compared to a Teflon coated surface
Last June, scientists from Harvard University announced the development of their new SLIPS (Slippery Liquid-Infused Porous Surfaces) technology. When used to coat surfaces, it is highly effective at keeping ice, frost, or just about any type of liquid from accumulating on them. Now, it turns out that SLIPS is also very good at keeping something else from getting a toehold – biofilms.
