Microbial adhesion and biofilm formation on surfaces represent an increasingly serious societal problem from both economic and health perspectives. Hospital surfaces & equipment, medical devices, household surfaces & appliances as well as everyday items such as clothing and banknotes are constantly challenged by microbial contamination.

Microbial adhesion and biofilm formation on surfaces represent an increasingly serious societal problem from both economic and health perspectives. Hospital surfaces & equipment, medical devices, household surfaces & appliances as well as everyday items such as clothing and banknotes are constantly challenged by microbial contamination.

Biofilm formation begins when free-floating micro-organisms such as bacteria or fungi come in contact with a surface and begin to adhere. Following adherence, biofilms then start to develop and can grow into complex 3D structures through biological communication mechanisms.

Penrhos Bio is developing innovative, naturally inspired ingredients that control microbial biofilms, providing solutions to microbial contamination problems in a wide range of applications including the marine, textile, paper, household cleaning and medical industries.

The company was formed as a joint venture between Unilever plc and Innova Partnerships in 2019 and has exclusive licence to exploit innovative bioderived anti-biofilm technology developed by Unilever plc and its collaborators over the past 10 years.

 

Our vision is a world free of harmful biofilms
