Aquila Bioscience has successfully proven that its breakthrough Pathogen Capturing Technology safely removes 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2 from human skin. This is the first time a nature inspired, safe and non-toxic technology that is free from all harmful chemicals, has been proven to remove COVID-19 with such efficiency. The results show that this novel technology is equally if not more effective as the highest performing chemical-based methods currently on the market but without any of the environmental or health problems.
Aquila Bioscience has developed revolutionary decontamination technology that helps protect people from dangerous pathogens and other viral infections like coronavirus. We are delighted to receive funding from EIC which allows us to substantially scale up production and deliver this technology more quickly to frontline and other workers in Ireland and across the globe. This technology will make it safer for people to return to work and help get Ireland’s economy moving again.
Aquila Bioscience have been successfully registered as a foreign manufacturing facility with FDA under Owner/ Operator Number 10074735

Charlotte Dessaux, a French PhD student (ESR 4 in PathSense ITN), working at the Spanish National Centre for Biotechnology (CNB-CSIC) under supervision of Prof. Francisco Garcia del Portillo in Madrid (Spain), recently came to Galway for a month-long secondment in Aquila Bioscience to investigate bacterial glycan-lectin interactions in foodborne pathogens and to experience start-up SME environment. Charlotte presented her research at the 20th International Symposium on Problems of Listeria and Listeriosis (ISOPOL 2019) in Toronto, Canada.
