NitroPep's antimicrobial surface coating effectively kills pathogens and works rapidly on regularly-handled surfaces, including door handles and grab rails, with a bacteria kill rate higher than 99.99%.
Our technology prevents surface colonisation and biofilm formation, ensuring surface ‘recontamination’ and onward transmission can be prevented.
Proven and tested technology, developed and patented by research teams at the University of Birmingham.
Based on experiments performed at the University of Birmingham (UK), NitroPep-treated surfaces rapidly inactivates SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Please refer to report for further details.
NitroPep and Covid-19
NitroPep antimicrobial surface coating rapidly inactivates SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Independently-assessed laboratory data shows our covalently-bonded coating kills SARS-CoV-2, along with gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and fungi.
The spread of infection and contamination from bacterial, viral, air-borne and insect-borne disease cause the biggest public health issues globally.
NitroPep Surface Coatings guarantee that contact surfaces are free of bacteria and germs, working to prevent infections, illness and poor health.
NitroPep Antiviral Air Filter coating technology reduces the risk of airborne disease transmission in a cost effective way.
NitroPep has partnered with leading metal processing experts Rübig
Rübig’s low temperature vacuum plasma cleaning technology removes all traces of surface contamination to ensure that their subsequent PACVD plasma activation enables pre-cursor molecules to be bonded to the surface of components, ensuring permanent attachment of NitroPep’s patented antimicrobial technology. NitroPep and Rübig have signed an exclusive licence partnership to work together to further develop and expand this exciting technology.
