What is microbeFENCE?

microbeFENCE is a revolutionary biocompatible technology that allows us to make products benefiting from a germ-repellent property. With the aid of patented innovative techniques, microbeFENCE™ allows us to make the surface of your products more resistant to the attachment by microbes and bacteria. The microbeFENCE technology do not contain antimicrobials. The modified materials received an intrinsic change on micrometrical scale which results in germ-repellent characteristics. The adhesion and proliferation of bacteria on the surface of the object are strongly reduced compared to a normal material. Objects and products produced with the aid of microbeFENCE to obtain germ-repellent properties have been proven by test according to ISO 22196 and JIS Z 2801 standard with modification.




Technologies

Built-in & Non-Leachable

The technology developed by microbeFENCE™ realizes an intrinsic, inert property change in and on the surface of the material. There is no substance migrating of leaching to act against bacteria.

No Drug Resistance or Super Bug

The microbeFENCE™ plastics reduce the attachment of bacteria without killing them, no antimicrobials will be employed, thus lead to no antimicrobial resistance. GRAS or Pharmaceutical Grade Materials microbeFENCE™ Plastics make use of innovative technologies and newly discovered methods in combination with one of the safe ingredients in food additives or pharmaceutical products. We do not use pesticides, biocides, heavy metal or other harmful substances.

Safe for Food

To confirm the stability of our plastics we have performed migration tests on microbeFENCE plastics according to the “Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011” and “CFR Part 177”. The tests proved microbeFENCE plastics are safe for applications that come in contact with foodstuff.

Biocompatibility

To verify the biocompatibility of microbeFENCE™ plastics, we performed cytotoxicity study according to ISO 10993-5, we have identified that microbeFENCE™ products are not cytotoxic and safe in contact with human. 

Germ-Repellent Efficacy

Since there is no existing standard for germ-repellent material, so we perform the germ-repellent efficacy test according to ISO 22196/JIS Z 2801 with modification. microbeFENCE™ plastics have proven germ-repellency over 95%.


Why Choose microbeFENCE?

The markets for antimicrobial products have so far been dominated by products incorporated with biocides, for example triclosan, silver-based materials, etc., as the means to inhibit the germ growth on surfaces by leach-and-kill actions. However, this has largely raised public awareness regarding the safety of these biocides and abuse of uses may lead to “superbacteria” threatening the human health and ecological environment. While there is a continual tendency to phase out biocidal products abiding by more new stringent regulations to be launched, the microbeFENCE™ developed a forward-looking biocide-free, process-friendly and safe-to-use antimicrobial solution, as inspired from a bacteria-repellent concept, to be incorporated into commodity plastics which are commonly seen in various aspects of daily life.
