Washington State Develops Infection-Resistant Metal Implants with Additive Manufacturing

A surgical implant has been developed by researchers at Washington State University (WSU), Pullman, Washington, that is able to kill 87% of staph infections bacteria in laboratory tests, while remaining strong and compatible with surrounding tissue.

The research, reported in the International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing, could lead to better infection control in common surgeries, such as hip and knee replacements. Bacterial colonization of the implants is one of the leading causes of their failure after surgery.

PowderMet2024 and AMPM2024 Technical Programs Organized


The Technical Program Committees for PowderMet2024 and AMPM2024 met recently to assemble the program for the June 16–19 conferences in Pittsburgh. Over 80 industry experts met to review abstracts.
