Excellence in Science
Aquila Bioscience is developing innovative technologies to manage infectious diseases, including COVID-19, using environmentally friendly processes that are safe for everyone.
Current decontamination measures use products that are not safe for skin and are causing damage to the environment. We all affect the environment through our decontamination efforts. Unfortunately, the effects are often negative.
Therefore, there is a need for an environmentally friendly technology that is effective and, most importantly, safe. We at Aquila Bioscience are driven to offer this product in the form of the ABD Device.
Pathogen Capturing Technology
Human pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi) must stick to proteins and sugar chains on our internal surfaces to establish an infection.
Aquila Bioscience technology uses decoy protein and sugar chains that capture human pathogens by their stickers. Millions of decoys attached to the cotton wipe material bind to pathogen stickers, trapping them like Velcro®️ from which they cannot escape. Aquila Bioscience’s signature technology is currently applied to our products; the ABD Device and ProShield.
The ABD wipe (Anti Bioagent Decontamination Device) uses pathogen capture technology to remove 99.99% of pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), from human skin. It can be applied safely and comfortably to sensitive areas like around the eyes, nose and mouth.
The product is a US FDA registered Class I medical device that comes in the form of a decontamination wipe.
The ABD device contains no alcohol or toxic chemicals. By capturing pathogens rather than poisoning them, the ABD device will not promote the development of resistant pathogens.
The ABD Device comes in the form of a decontamination wipe that enables users to safely capture and remove up to 99.99% of SARS CoV-2 the causing agent of Covid-19 from sensitive surfaces and the human skin such as; around the eyes, nose and mouth.
Currently being used in everyday and emergency use cases by Defence Force Ireland, the HSE and An Post
This product is only available to purchase by organisations at present.
ProShield Mask Spray
Our second pilot product, ProShield Mask Spray provides an extra layer of protection to individuals wearing re-usable, fabric face masks.
ProShield Mask Spray uses Pathogen Capturing Technology to trap and neutralise viruses, bacteria and fungus spores before they reach the face. Fabric Masks treated with ProShield Mask Spray are transformed from simple fabric masks to a highly protective shield. ProShield Mask Spray treated masks should be washed after use and ProShield Mask Spray reapplied ready for the next use.
This product is suitable for ALL including parents of young children who want more protection for the family as well as those moving around in busy areas.
Utilising our pathogen capturing technology, we have successfully applied it to ProShield Mask Spray was launched in March 2021.
