Galway Bay fm newsroom – A medical know-how spin-out at NUI Galway has developed a brand new barrier spray making re-usable masks as much as 99% efficient at blocking airborne pathogens and particles.
ProShield has been developed by scientists and researchers at Aquila Bioscience to create a protected, nanofibre protecting coating on materials, an added defence in opposition to airborne pathogens.
Impressed by the event of its first product, the ABD Gadget, a decontamination wipe, Aquila Bioscience efficiently utilized its signature Pathogen Capturing Know-how to ProShield.
It comprises microscopic velcro-like buildings particularly designed to bind and neutralise dangerous pathogens.
The scientifically developed know-how was examined for its efficacy utilizing a wide range of cloth supplies and its capacity to seize and block airborne pathogens.
Outcomes confirmed that the spray dramatically improved the efficacy of the material materials to dam pathogens by between 94% and 99.5%.
