Effective microbe encapsulation technology that removes bacteria when used for sanitisation and disinfection
Summary:
A Singapore SME offers a water-based, non-toxic coating that can be applied swiftly with little curing time. Proven to encapsulate and remove contaminants and microbes, it offers extended antimicrobial activity on applied surfaces. This technology can be applied to hand sanitisers, disinfection gates, surface disinfectants/antimicrobial coatings, and as an anti-smell coating in toilets. The SME seeks licensing/commercial partnerships with technical assistance with MNEs/SMEs of all sizes.
Description:
The Singapore SME is a manufacturer in the electric water heater industry.This patent-pending microbe encapsulation coating-based technology developed by the SME can be applied swiftly and simply to quickly form a perfect seal around live and dead microbes. The polymer in the solution starts to crosslink during evaporation to form a network that encapsulates the bacteria.

Used in hand sanitisers, this coating-based technology encapsulates microbes to facilitate the effective removal of bacteria from hands. The encapsulated dead and live bacteria are shred off with a rubbing action, and a bioshield - an invisible, nano-thin film - will form on the hand. This forms a protective barrier against microbes which may land on the hands after sanitisation.

Traditional hand sanitisers kill bacteria, but dead bacteria remain as they are neutralised and not removed. The almost-dead bacteria may resurrect and develop resistance, while residual toxins are harmful, and any remnants left may support more new bacteria growth.

The Singapore company seeks to work MNE/SMEs of all sizes to explore the following types of cooperation:

i) Licensing agreement - The Singapore company would license the technology to develop and incorporate it into their dry mist robot.

ii) Commercial partnership with technical assistance - Both parties will cooperate commercially with technical consultancy and support provided by the Singapore company.
Advantages and Innovations:
This coating-based technology is suited for the sanitisation and disinfection industry and its related products.

When used with hand sanitisers (alcohol -Y- non-alcohol based), the technology offers the following advantages:
- Dual sanitisation action (chemical deactivation and physical removal) that guarantees cleaner hands
- Besides killing microbes, the technology has been proven in the lab to physically remove 99.99% of microbes

When used for disinfectants for disinfection gates, the technology offers the following advantages:
- Bioshield function offers extra protection and makes it easier to maintain high hygiene levels

When used for surface disinfectants/antimicrobial surface coatings, the technology offers the following advantages:
- Simple one-step application method (misting is one option)
- Instant disinfection with lasting antimicrobial effect
- Embedded multi-biocides/virucides make it effective against a broad range of microbes and lowers risk of microbes developing resistance

When used in toilet-related products and toilet market, the technology offers the following advantages:
- Anti-smell coating for toilet bowl/urinal, which also reduces bacteria growth
- Reduces amount of water used for flushing by about 50%

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The Singapore SME is interested in the following types of partnerships with MNEs or SMEs of all sizes that could be in but not limited to the healthcare and cleaning sectors.

i) Licensing agreement - The partner could license the microbe encapsulation technology for further development and introduce it to its customers.

ii) Commercial agreement with technical assistance - The partner could utilise the microbe encapsulation technology with technical support from the Singapore company.
