Making things antimicrobial, for life.
Nobio is a medical technology company that is developing antimicrobial particles that can be permanently embedded in multiple products and materials to perpetually inhibit the growth of bacteria or viruses on their surface. Each particle is covered with a high concentration of antimicrobial structures to generate a powerful collective effect. As bacteria approach, each particle exerts strong electrostatic forces to attract the bacteria and apply stress to its membrane, causing it to deactivate and die. A small concentration of highly active Nobio particles can transform many products into antimicrobial, permanently protecting them against bacteria and virus formation.
The Company's initial product line for dental restoratives has been cleared for marketing by the FDA. Additional applications in development are for dental implants, orthodontics, breast implants, contact lenses and non-medical applications.
