Antimicrobial Technologies for Enhanced Consumer Health

Antimicrobial Technologies for Enhanced Consumer Health

Healthcare-associated infection (HAI) continues to be a significant global concern, hence there is growing research for developing new antimicrobial platforms that can significantly decrease the risk of microbial infections. While metallic ions continue to be one of the most potent antimicrobial technology platform, several new innovations across antimicrobial polymers, peptides and naturally sourced agents will lead the global consumer health landscape.Key opportunities for antimicrobial technologies will depend on the use of optimal combination of multiple microbicidal platforms for several consumer health applications.
