Unlike any other antimicrobial technology

Nobio’s breakthrough technology uniquely combines strength, longevity and safety. When encountering bacteria or virus, the Nobio particles exert strong, concentrated electrostatic stress, causing their breakdown and death. The particles are non-soluble and their mode of action does not require any chemical release or exchange, so they remain active indefinitely, without affecting the surroundings.

The novel particles consist of a solid core and a high concentration of covalently-bound functional molecules, which multiplies the antimicrobial effect. The solid core enables to permanently embed the particles in the bulk of the treated material, or anchor it to its surface, to provide strong and long-lasting protection.

More than 6 Log Reductions (>106) of Bacteria After 6-Month Aging

Samples (8 per group) with 1% Nobio particles were aged for 6 months in simulated indwelling conditions (physiologic solution replaced every 48 hrs, and then inoculated by >1,000,000 (106) bacteria per 1µl and cultured for 24hrs. Maximal bacteria growth was observed on samples with no particles or bacteria alone, while no bacteria grew on the samples with 1% Nobio particles.

Anti-biofilm Effect Invivo

In this clinical study, disks made from dental composite material with 1% Nobio™ particles and without particles wereplaced in the mouth of 10 healthy volunteers for 4 hours. Examination with confocal laser scanning microscopy showed mostly dead bacteria on the 1% Nobio™ samples vs. mostly live bacterial on the untreated, control samples.
