Washington: Scientists claim to have developed a revolutionary coating which attracts and kills bacteria, even those resistant to antibiotics. An international team, led by the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, says the killer coating, which has a magnetic-like feature, can destroy 99 per cent of the bacteria and fungi that it comes in contact with. In fact, the scientists say that this is an alternative solution which could replace antibiotics -- currently the main defence against bacteria - now powerless against super bugs, the `Nature Materials` journal reported.
