ABSTRACT

The influence of some polymer surface properties on bacterial attachment to the surface of the elastomeric and thermoplastic samples was shown. As promising materials in this field, butadiene-styrene thermoplastic elastomers (BSTPE) showed average characteristics of bacterial adhesion in comparison with other materials. All materials have passed cytotoxicity test.
