Paper Title:
Staphylococcus Epidermidis and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Adhesion Intensity on a TiO2 Ceramic in an in Vitro Study
  Abstract

Extrusion is a perspective forming technology for obtaining objects with certain profile, important for the TiO2 application as biomaterial. Extruded samples were calcinated at 1100 °C, thermally treated in different atmospheres: at 1450 °C in air and at 1300 °C in vacuum. An approach was made to examine the adhesion and colonization intensity of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa on TiO2 ceramic in vitro. It was found that Ps.aeruginosa demonstrated higher adhesion and colonization intensity as S.epidermidis and TiO2 samples treated in vacuum demonstrated higher attachment of microorganisms as TiO2 samples treated in air. It was supposed that surface charge promoted the bacterial adhesion on the vacuum treated samples.
