University of Calgary very encouraging anti-bacterial Biosenta particles for construction industry

May 25, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta - Biosenta Inc. (the “Company” or “Biosenta”) (CSE: ZRO) is developing environmentally friendly biocidal particles that are successfully tested against infectious bacteria growing on common surfaces. The particles are developed in collaboration with Dr. Maen Husein’s laboratory, University of Calgary, and tested in Dr. Ian Lewis’s laboratory, University of Calgary. Preliminary results showed that inclusion of the particles into cement provides effective biocidal attributes.

“It is critical to tune the morphology of the particles for optimum performance” said Dr. Husein.

“We are thrilled about our collaboration with Biosenta and are excited about the new data that is emerging from our collaboration” said Dr. Lewis.

“Mass production of the particles is feasible” said Noora, a PhD student working on developing the particles.

“The biocidal efficacy of the particles will be tested against Corona virus, including COVID 19, in the near future” said Dr. Ashani, a postdoctoral fellow testing the biocidal efficacy of the particles.”

“The findings are very encouraging and would have a profound impact in the construction industry because of the anti-microbial properties of the particles. We are pleased to see the outcome of the research by University of Calgary, which proves the science behind Biosenta that has been years in the making” said Am Gill, CEO of Biosenta.

Further research will be conducted this summer on multiple construction surfaces such drywall, paint, plastic, glass carpet etc. Research funds from Biosenta are matched by Mitacs Accelerate funding that builds partnerships between academia, industry, and the world.
