NitroPep's antimicrobial coating technology is helping us to unlock the development of antimicrobial resistance on metal and plastic products.
A comprehensive product for reducing the spread of pathogens and infection in public places, the benefits of using NitroPep's antimicrobial coating technology are obvious to see from the results of our clinical studies. But it isn't just in healthcare settings; the results are far-reaching across many industries.
Regardless of your business type, NitroPep can:
- Produce results in minutes
- Kill 99.99% of bacteria and moulds
- Effective against SARS-CoV-2
- Lasts for up to 10 years per treatment
Research has shown how the built environment plays a major role in the transmission of infections. People are exposed to a wide range of environments and surfaces every day.
Good hygiene practices are, of course, essential; however, the benefit is not continuous. Surfaces become quickly re-contaminated after cleaning and some surfaces are difficult to clean.
NitroPep’s ‘self-cleaning’ surfaces have the potential to make significant reductions in the spread of infectious diseases.
From GP surgeries to A&E waiting rooms, acute to primary care, it is absolutely vital that we reduce the rate at which bacterial and viral infections spread. In high-turnover public areas such as these, we can see powerful results on all door handles, push plates and grab rails, as well as medical devices treated with NitroPep's antimicrobial coating.
Whether it’s the strap hanger, vertical grab poles or standing passengers on buses and trains, or drop-down table trays on aeroplanes, public transport is a vital sector where we can reduce both the spread of infection and the labour and costs of regular deep cleaning.
Care facilities such as nursing homes and retirement homes have high cleaning standards and must provide a safe and hygienic environment for residents, staff and guests. By ensuring the cleanliness of grab rails, door handles and push plates, we can immediately reduce the risk of a spread of infection or illness.
Heating, Ventilation & Cooling
NitroPep's antiviral air filters have exhibited excellent efficacy where indoor air quality is essential to create a healthy environment. Areas such as large offices and industrial buildings, hospitals, ships, aeroplanes and trains can all be improved by adding NitroPep coated filters to HVAC systems.
From bowling alleys to restaurants and cinemas, high-traffic pedestrian areas have a requirement to provide clean, safe and hygienic places of leisure and relaxation for the general public. NitroPep's antimicrobial coatings last 10 years per treatment (with a 99.9% kill rate) even in high-frequency touch areas, like door handles, push plates and grab rails.
NitroPep's antimicrobial coating can be applied to a wide range of applications from wall and floor to building materials, as well as architectural furniture and fittings including rails and handles in public buildings, transport facilities and schools.
Highly-pedestrianised shopping centres and retail parks can help to reduce the spread of infection and illness throughout the general public by adding NitroPep's antimicrobial coating to public door handles, grab rails and push plates.
Offices and the Workplace
One of the biggest preventable costs to businesses worldwide is sickness absence, with workforces regularly being depleted by the preventable spread of bacterial and viral infection. Introducing regular hand-washing and sanitation stations alongside NitroPep antimicrobial coating on door handles and push plates will dramatically reduce this extensive cost.
Food Preparation and Packaging
NitroPep's antimicrobial coating can be effective for the handling and distribution of food, including food manufacturing and processing equipment, food packaging, kitchen or restaurant equipment and appliances, plus floor and wall treatments. All these surfaces can be treated with NitroPep to prevent the transfer of bacteria and viruses.
With our specialism in high-frequency contact points, NitroPep's antimicrobial coatings and filters can also be invaluable in other industries, including the Dental, Veterinary and Tourism & Hospitality sectors.
