Combating Superbugs Through Sonochemistry

More than 4 million people each year in the EU suffer from hospital acquired infection (HAIs) such as MRSA and E. coli and around 37,000 die as a direct result of the infections. HAIs are also thought to be a contributing factor to a further 100,000 deaths each year. In the UK the cost associated with HAIs is estimated to be around £1 billion per year.
