Problem:

Biofilm spreads in air and water – it was found on a titanium plate within 30 seconds after sterilization.

The human immune system, antimicrobials and antibiotics are only designed to kill free-floating bacteria.  None can remove biofilm at non-toxic doses.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) associate biofilm with 90% of all hospital-acquired infections and almost all chronic infections, and many diseases considered “incurable,” such as cystic fibrosis.

The bacteria and fungi on the CDC lists of threats (pandemic, urgent, bioterrorist, etc.) are all biofilm-formers, as are all of the antimicrobial resistant strains – the Superbugs.

Solution:

Aequor’s chemicals are non-toxic, “green,” eco-friendly, and sustainable. They remove 99.99% of existing biofilm in under 10 minutes and prevent biofilm formation on surfaces for >48 hours without triggering resistance.

Aequor’s antimicrobial molecules are potent at low concentrations against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria and fungi.

They can be used alone as new antibiotics and therapeutics, or as “potentiators” so that existing antibiotics can work again. Some can be incorporated in coatings and materials for critical clinical surfaces and medical devices.
