In the study the research findings are described regarding the application of innovative solutions from the field of the material science and medicine to the inside of modern ambulances. The aim of investigation was the most appropriate material and coating choice from the point of view of high sterility level of the inside of an ambulance. Examinations were conducted in the two stage procedure. Firstly, bacteria taken from the ambulance body paneling being in the everyday use were examined. However the second stage included the inoculation and the incubation of identified bacteria on appropriately prepared surfaces of metal sheets of ambulance body paneling with antibacterial paints and coatings. In the course of examinations the topography of the surface, the adhesion and the lifetime of incubated bacteria colony was estimated.
