Technology Features & Specifications
This technology is a library of Polyimidazolium Polymeric salts that have excellent anti-microbial properties. They are easily synthesized and inexpensive to produce. The in vivo anti-infection activity of current materials in mice model (SA infection) shows that the anti-microbial polymers had a high therapeutic index (LD50/ED50) of >30 against SA infection. An ideal anti-microbial polymer should also be non-toxic to mammalian cells. We tested the haemolysis percentage and this was found to be only 4% at 5000 µg/ml, the selectivity is over 3300.
The material can be adapted to meet formulation needs. It can be used by itself, as an additive or as a coating onto a substrate.
With the excellent anti-microbial, high selectivity and flexibility in adapting to formulation needs, this Antimicrobial Polyimidazolium Polymeric salt is excellent for
- Antiseptic medication
- Personal care formulation such as disinfectant cream, solutions, eye care systems
- Healthcare systems such as hospital equipment coating or fabrication, disinfectant solutions and disposables.
- Household appliances such as refrigerator panels, food packaging material and food storage systems.
- Water treatment that requires anti-microbial treatment
Anti-microbial, high selectivity highly adaptable to various formulation needs.
