Background information: Biomaterials used in medical devices such as silicone can easily promote surface microbial colonization and related biofilm-associated-infections. Thus, preventing the microbiological contamination of the device surface is a potential way to favour its performance.
Methods: Sophorolipids (SLs) were biosynthesized by.. The access to the whole abstract and if available the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
