Published on 2011-10-05. Author : SpecialChem

Bluestar Silicones Senior Scientist Dr. Olga Hoy, Ph.D., presents "Silicone Material to Control Bacterial Growth" at the Medical Silicones Conference in Boston, October 4-5.

According to Dr. Hoy, the rising number of hospital acquired infections, increasing cost of medical care and the aging population are factors that contribute to growing demand for medical devices and consumer goods that incorporate antimicrobial properties.

In her presentation, Dr. Hoy explores the various factors medical device and consumer goods companies should consider in their quest for antimicrobial silicone materials. From additive selection, to additive interaction with the silicone, to manufacturing process, to regulatory considerations, Dr. Hoy will demonstrate how a customized approach enables manufacturers to optimize the use of antimicrobials.

As a gold sponsor of the Medical Silicones Conference, Bluestar Silicones hosts a tabletop display at the event highlighting its Silbione® brand adhesive silicone materials designed specifically for healthcare and medical applications.
