The NADESept concept is based on the application of solely environmental-friendly ("Green") components as antimicrobial agents and consists of a combination of natural deep eutectic solvents (NADES), biopolymers, biodegradable and biocompatible nanoparticles and natural photosensitizers (PS).
The products address the following essential topics:
The antibacterial effect is achieved through reaction mechanisms which do not aim at specific targets within the microorganisms, e.g. attack by reactive oxygen species (ROS) or pH changes. A non-specific mechanism reduces the probability of resistance development towards the treatment modality.
The concern about antibiotic pollution of the environment in general, and of aquatic ecosystems in particular, is increasing globally. The individual components in NADESept products are biodegradable, have low toxicity and reasonable water solubility. Further, the biodegradation of the materials into harmless products ensures biocompatibility.
Sustainable use of rest raw material
The increasing production and consumption of poultry results in an increasing amount of rest raw material such as skin, tendons and bones. In the NADESept concept, we apply biopolymers that are isolated from this rest raw material in a new and innovative way.
