The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP is one of the leading institutions for collaborative research and development in thin-film technologies and electron-beam applications. The developed technologies are being effectively successfully employed in the fight against germs.
Just recently the World Health Organization (WHO) published a list with twelve families of bacteria that are resistant to conventional antibiotics. But dangerous germs are not only found in hospitals – they are lurking everywhere. The German publication Testbild tested ten hotel rooms in Berlin and found an “exceptionally high concentration of multi-resistant Staphylococci” in eight of them. That sounds alarming.
