Antibacterial &
Antifungal

Chitosan is used in dentistry for its antimicrobial effect to prevent caries. As a renewable, non-toxic and biologically absorbable biopolymer, chitosan is used as a food additive and for cosmetics (especially for their preservation).

In addition, chitosan is also used as a carrier for medicines, skin substitute, absorbable suture material and wound healing accelerator. Due to its antitumour, immunostrengthening and hypocholesterolaemic effects, chitosan has gained importance in the biomedical field. An important property of chitosan and its chemical derivatives is the broad spectrum of antimicrobial activities.

CLOSING THE
HYGIENE GAPS

Germ load & Time

The “hygiene gap” is the phase between two consecutive disinfection intervals in which the germ load increases again. Even after a short time, germs accumulate on surfaces through skin-to-skin contact or droplets from the air. The germ load only decreases again through repeated disinfection or cleaning.

Chitosan &
CHITOSAN DERIVATIVES

In medicine, chitosan and chitosan derivatives have proven their value in wound care as they form breathable and moisture-permeable membranes and are effective in inhibiting the growth, viability and/or adhesion of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Natural
Raw Material

Chitosan is synthesised from chitin with the help of an enzyme. Chitin is a naturally occurring polysaccharide found in the exoskeletons of crustaceans and insects and in the cell walls of certain fung

AVAILABILITY

Despite its potent antibacterial properties, the use of chitosan as a chemical agent was limited by its insolubility in water. Now this availability has been researched and developed together with leading hygiene specialists and forms the basis for PURE CABIN’s products.

PURE CABIN

PURE CABIN was originally developed for use in aircraft cabins and is now being made available for other industries.
