Proprietary Biocides for Medicine and Industry; Rendering Surfaces Self-Disinfecting for a Lifetime of Infection Prevention
Our Platform No. 2 antimicrobial additives can be broadly applicable across medical, consumer and industrial markets. A wide variety of derivatives have been synthesized. In the medical device space silver (Ag+) and quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) have been explored.
Modified acrylic latex enamel paint with a copper (Cu++) additive has been shown to be extensively antimicrobial, eradicating 99.999% or more of pathogens. This surface has also been evaluated against Coronavirus 229E, demonstrating a 99.7% virus inactivation within 2 hours and >99.9% virus inactivation within 24 hours of exposure.
In the last decade, interest in silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) has increased due to their unique antimicrobial activities. Silver nanoparticles are now the most common commercialized nano-technological product on the market. They are widely used in many products including advanced wound dressings. However, there is an increasing concern related to the biological impact of the use of nanoparticles on a larger global scale, and the possible risks to both human and environmental health.
Platform No. 2 Antimicrobials
Our antimicrobials are not nanoparticles and are 1000x larger than nanoparticles.
Our biocides are highly effective against a range of drug-resistant gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi and viruses.
