Why our technology is important?

Virustatic Technology is on course to being a new first line defence against pandemic influenza and other pandemics.

It is vital in any major pandemic that immediate low cost protection is available swiftly to prevent the spread of such a virus.

Our technology not only prevents the virus from penetrating face masks, it also captures the virus and prevents its onward transmission through contact – no other technology can do this.

It will take up to 6 months for a new vaccine to be created once a flu strain has been isolated. Protection from face masks with virustatic coated material will be immediate.

Our technology will also work on protective clothing and has many other applications – see our investment page.

These background links highlight worldwide concerns that a future pandemic outbreak is a case of “when” not “if”.

Here are just a few background links to worldwide concerns about a future pandemic and therefore the importance of our technology:
