Abstract
The characteristics and capacities of sintered stainless steels have been investigated in order to evaluate their ability to retain microorganisms. Three sintered stainless steels were tested in different culture media using four types of bacteria. In general, the austenitic stainless steels was the most favourable for this type of study. Regarding the microorganisms, the best results for observation and counting were obtained with Staphylococcus aureus. The results suggest that PM stainless steel could be a useful surface where planktonic microorganisms can attach and develop biofilms, which could have environmental applications such as decontamination of polluted water.
