Findings from University of Suwon Yields New Findings on Escherichia Coli (Impact of conditioning film on the initial adhesion of E. coli on polysulfone ultrafiltration membrane)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Proteobacteria have been published. According to news reporting from Gyeonggi Do, South Korea, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The impact of conditioning films on the initial adhesion of bacterial cells on polysulfone ultrafiltration membrane was investigated."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Suwon, "Interestingly, the clean membrane possessed higher adhesion of both latex particles (CML) and Escherichia coli than the membrane conditioned with bovine serum albumin (BSA), alginate (SA), and natural organic matter (NOM). While CML and E. coli had similar zeta potentials, the motility of the E. coil increased initial adhesion on to membrane surfaces than CML."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The addition of calcium ion increased the adhesion of CML and E. coli with the great impact on the SA-coated membrane as compared to BSA and NOM."
