Amferia’s innovative, flexible hydrogel can be adapted to many medical applications. One of the first products we’re developing for our antimicrobial platform is a wound care dressing.
The soft, flexible Amferia antimicrobial hydrogel can be integrated with wound dressings of various shapes and sizes. The product we’re developing will be shelf-stable for up to eighteen months—and, when applied to wounds, will bind and kill bacteria for up to five days before dressings need to be changed.
Other potential treatments showing early promise include pre-surgery skin cleansing, spray-based products for wound care, and coatings for medical devices such as catheters and implants.
As antibiotics continue to be less effective against certain resistant bacterial strains, the potential market for this technology is enormous.

Amferia’s hydrogel is a flexible solution that can be potentially adapted to multiple applications where killing bacteria is critical—with the added advantage that it kills even resistant bacteria. A few examples of potential applications are listed below. Some we are already developing. Others, we’re actively seeking partners to develop with us.
