INVEST IN HEALTHCARE INVENTION REDUCING INFECTION RISKS

Dear Sir / Madam,

We are very proud to inform you that the Italian Ministry of Economic Development issued the patent for our invention to create antimicrobial and antibiofilm functionality on the surface of Vitamin E-blended Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) for orthopaedic prosthetic devices as used in endoprosthesis of the hip, knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow and vertebral column.

Prof. Luigi Costa, PhD – researcher and specialist in UHMWPE biomaterials:
“The Parx Plastics technology improving the resistance to adhesion of bacterial biofilms to the surface of orthopaedic prostheses parts represents a further step forward in better controlling the risks of infection.”

This patent motivates Parx Plastics to strengthen its focus on the ground breaking impact the patented antibacterial technology for plastics can have on the healthcare market. Reducing infection risk, faster healing times and lesser biofilm formation on implants are key priorities in this market.

In order to be able to benefit from the potential of the medical and healthcare applications in full, additional funding for the company would be welcome. If you are interested to receive additional information to fully understand the impact of our technology, please contact us,

Some slides from our deck:

The problem with implants and other (medical) applications is the fact that biofilm builds up on the surface of the plastics allowing bacteria to proliferate. This biofilm layer can even act as a shield for bacteria, making them unreachable against antibiotics.

The Parx Plastics technology (patented or patent pending in +40 countries) prevent biofilm and bacteria adhesion creating a surface with an highly effective and broad spectrum antimicrobial performance of 99,9% to 99,99999%.

The Parx Plastics antimicrobial technology is derived from biomimicry, using one of the most abundant trace elements found in the human body. A nutrient element we all need to have a healthy immune system, integrated in polymers to give these materials the same kind of immune system.
