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 various actives has been shown to be extensively antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal, eradicating >99.99% or more of pathogens.
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.
