How Does BioProtect Protection Work?

The active ingredient in BioProtect polymerizes to all surfaces and is both colorless and odorless.

Think of BioProtect as a layer of electrically charged swords.  When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine sword punctures the cell membrane and the remnants are then electrocuted.

Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose it’s strength and the sword is now ready for the next cell to contact it.  (NOTE: Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for the BioProtect   antimicrobials to continue their effectiveness.  Dirt buildup,  paint, dead microbes, etc. will cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.)


With antimicrobial resistance growing and impacting health outcomes daily, it is time to look at persistent cleaning technologies available on the market today. Surface hygiene matters.

How long do nosocomial pathogens persist on inanimate surfaces? A systematic review concludes that "the most common nosocomial pathogens may well survive or persist on surfaces for months and can thereby be a continuous source of transmission if no regular preventive surface disinfection is performed. . . . Most nosocomial pathogens can persist on inanimate surfaces for weeks or even months. Our review supports current guidelines which recommend a disinfection of surfaces in specific patient-care areas in order to reduce the risk of transmission of nosocomial pathogens from inanimate surfaces to susceptible patients."

"Copper Stopper" is a video that discusses some research that found coating hospital surfaces with copper helped battle microbes and the infections they spread. Placement of copper surfaces in intensive care unit (ICU) hospital rooms reduced the amount of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) in patients by more than half. The video narrated by Dr. Michael Schmidt, professor of microbiology at the Medical University at the University of South Carolina, offers a great bit of additional information on copper's value as an antimicrobial.
