ABD Device

Emergency response against dangerous viruses and other pathogens

AB Decontamination Device

The Anti Bioagent Decontamination (ABD) device is essential PPE for the workplace. It is the only product available in the market that can be used on sensitive skin surfaces like around the eyes, nose and mouth. It can also be used on surfaces not suitable for biocide decontamination.

Developed and tested specifically for decontaminating dangerous viruses like CORONAVIRUS, the ABD technology is currently applied using a large wipe material.

Unlike standard wipes and sanitisers, ABDs are free from alcohol, biocides and other toxic chemicals and so do not cause skin irritation or destroy skin cells. The wipe is largely made of biodegradable material and is therefore more environmentally friendly than other products.

The Technology

Historically, decontamination products were developed to destroy viruses using alcohol or biocide-based chemicals. These chemicals have several detrimental effects on a person’s health and the environment.

Aquila’s technology uses a completely new mechanism for protecting against virus contamination.

Instead of trying to destroy the virus, complex glyco-sugars are infused in the wipe material, which then acts as a magnet, using natural and irreversible binding interactions to capture the pathogen, effectively neutralising it.

A virus, like the coronavirus, attaches to the surface molecules of host cells (for example in our throat) which then serve as binding partners for the protein hooks on the viral particles. Once attached to the cells they enter our body depositing their RNA and ultimately leading to infection and disease.

The ABD device stops such bindings happening and protects people against such viruses.

ABDs are suitable for everyday use

ABDs can be used across all sectors

Every First Aid kit & Isolation Room should have a supply of ABD Devices

Schools and Creches:

  • Use the ABD Device when an infant, student or teacher accidentally coughs or sneezes and potentially contaminates others and their surrounding surfaces.


  • Add the ABD Devices to your first aid kit and have them available in your Isolation Room for times when personal decontamination is required for employees.

Construction Sites:

  • If a worker is suspected of having contracted the coronavirus, use the ABD Devices to decontaminate all the equipment they may have come into contact with before allowing others to use.

Security Companies:

  • Provide your security staff with ABD Devices to protect them against contracting viruses at work due to antisocial behaviour especially when they are deliberately targeted by persons.


  • If someone has to move to an Isolation Room, immediately dispense the ABD Devices to that person, and other co-workers they have recently come into contact with. 

Care Homes:

  • In the event of staff or visitor contamination, immediately use the ABD Device to clean the exposed skin of any resident that may have come into contact with that person.

On Airplanes:

  • Use the ABD Devices on airplanes as PPE for pilots and airline staff who are exposed to bacteria and virus risk due to poor hygiene and cough etiquette by colleagues or a passenger.

In Hotels, Restaurants & Bars:

  • If distancing rules become difficult to enforce, ensure that each employee has access to the ABD Devices so that they can decontaminate their skin and equipment at any time.
