Effective hand sanitization is one of the best methods of reducing the spread of viral or bacterial pathogens. Disigel was initially developed in the framework of VersusVirus. It is a novel gel-based approach consisting of a pre-polymeric component covalently linked to an antimicrobial agent. The pre-polymer forms a thin, flexible layer on the skin and allows the material to stay attached up to a full day, while the disinfecting agent makes it permanently antimicrobial. The innovative solution enables users to touch infected surfaces without taking the risk of infecting themselves or spreading infections in their environment. The need to wear gloves, change them frequently, wash or disinfect hands after every possible contact would be a thing of the past.
Lumendo has developed over the past years a portfolio of soft-tissue replacing materials with antimicrobial properties or the ability to block bacteria from migrating. During the current Covid-19 wave, we realized that our technologies might also be used to fight Sars-CoV-2 or, even more importantly, might reduce the spread of antibiotic-resistant infections, one of the major health challenges of the next decades.
Within the last 10 days, we have performed a preliminary proof of concept. The timeline is highly ambitious, but Lumendo has all the required know-how and expertise. Worldwide we might the only or one of the very few organizations who could run a project as proposed herein in the proposed timeframe.
