Biofouling, in general, refers to the undesirable accumulation of microorganism, algae, plants and animals on wetted structures. The same can cause bacterial infections in medical appliances. Current antifouling agents used are costly, toxic, unstable and mainly used in non medicinal applications. Here we have coated surface of glass and some medical appliances using a simple chemical surface modification technique based on dip-coating and studied their antibacterial and antifouling properties. This work will lead to a simplified and scalable technique towards designing benign and antifouling surfaces for any medical applications.
