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.)


HELP Co-op was founded as a technology-development company to take advantage of and to commercialize patent and patent-pending technologies to control biofilms on medical devices and medical-related products.

A team of researchers at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada took a long-established technology that has been around since the mid-70s, and improved the anchoring mechanism so it permanently attaches to various substrates including metals, plastics and fabrics. The technologies are perfectly suited for medical device manufacturers, wound care products, medical-related products, and hospital environments where the potential of Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAI) is greatest.

These technologies change the paradigm for controlling biofilms, infectious organisms, and drug resistant microbes associated with medical devices and medical-related products. NSC technologies modify metals, plastics and fabrics, and make them resistant to the attachment and propagation of non-eukaryotic organisms without adverse affects to humans, materials or the environment.

NSC alters medical devices and products in ways that enhance the overall performance of the treated surfaces.
