    An antimicrobial protection of natural origin

    The Japan Times has published an article about a natural and non-toxic antimicrobial protection which is not harmful to the environment. The protection can be used on for example fabric in the medical industry. Below we have posted a summary of the article, a link to the full text can be found at the bottom of this page.

    NordShield is a revolutionary antimicrobial innovation developed by the Nordic BioTech Group Ltd, which was established 2016 in Helsinki, Finland. Earlier this year NordShield received the Sustainable Healthcare Innovation Award by the Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare.

    NordShield innovates the way antimicrobials work by offering a natural alternative for hazardous antimicrobial substances. The technology forms a bioactive molecular net on treated surfaces, providing safe and long-lasting antimicrobial protection, that is highly effective against mold, bacteria and viruses, and therefore very useful in medical industries.

    The renewable product is of natural origin, making it non-toxic and non-harmful to the environment. It can be applied through patented water or solvent solutions, as well as through ointments and liniments, making it useful for a wide variety of industries. The technology has shown good antimicrobial efficacy, including enveloped viruses, specifically HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Hand-in-cage studies conducted in Bangalore, India, have also shown that treating textiles with NordShield provide high mosquito repellent efficacy.

    Nordic BioTech Group partners with organizations around the globe to develop applications for NordShield. Third-party partners in Finland, Sweden, Germany, France and Japan, among others, are continuously conducting tests.
