HOW IT WORKS

HOW IT WORKS

Our technology works on the surface contact mechanism, meaning that as soon as any germs come in contact with the coated surface it starts deactivating the pathogens. It has been created with the combination of silver nanoparticles (as virocidal) and non-migratory quantrany ammonium salt disinfectant (as virostatic). These are extremely effective in the inactivation of the enveloped RNA virus and bacterial DNA genome. The coating has been tested against the human coronavirus (229E) (a type Alpha coronavirus) at Nelson Lab, USA; the bovine coronavirus (S379) (A type Beta coronavirus 1) from Eurofin, Italy; and MS2, a RNA virus, a surrogate virus in place of Picoma viruses such as Poliovirus and human norovirus from the accredited NABL lab in India. Products show the efficacy of >99% while tested as per global standards ISO, JIS, EN and AATCC (Figure 1). Further, the product has been tested for its nontoxic properties as per the global standard Nontoxic Acute Dermal Skin Irritation Report (OECD 404) from the FDA-approved lab APT Research Centre, Pune, India, and per the global leaching test for food contact US FDA 175.300 from CFTRI, Mysore, India. These test results confirm that the product is non-toxic and safe to use.

 

We have applied to patent this technology with application no. 202021020915. The working model of the NANOVA HYGIENE+ technology is as follows:

1 . As the microbes come in contact with the coating, AgNPs inhibit the replication of virus nucleotides, the main mechanism of its being virulent. It binds to electron donor groups such as sulphur, oxygen, and nitrogen commonly found in enzymes within the microbe. This causes the enzymes to be denatured, thus effectively incapacitating the energy source of the cell. The microbe will quickly die.
2. The cationic silver (Ag+) or QUATs works to inactivate the human coronavirus by interacting with its surface (spike) protein, S, based on its charge like it works in HIV, hepatitis viruses, etc. (Figure 2).

The technology achieved success and recommendation from many elite organizations and scientists. NANOVA HYGIENE+ shows complete disablement of various pathogenic bacteria already, and on the basis of available scientific reports, we are of the opinion that the present formula should work against a broad spectrum of viruses as well.

The technology’s application on different surfaces can stop the secondary spread from various surfaces to living cells through touch. The self-protecting nano-coating works for all surfaces like fabric (masks, gloves, doctor coats, curtains, bed sheets), metal (lifts, doors handles, nobs, railings, public transport), wood (furniture, floors, partition panels), concrete (hospitals, clinics and isolation wards), plastics (switches, kitchen and home appliances) and potentially could save many lives.
