Product Profile

ABSORBENT PHOTODYNAMIC BANDAGE.

The Germtron™ bandage is a simultaneously absorbent and photodynamically wound illuminating self- adhesive bandage . The bandage employs an LED illuminated side emitting fiber optic mesh or a printed LED chip array embedded in the transmissive perforated non-stick thin film absorbent pad outer surface. The LEDs are powered by a battery sealed in the bandage. Irradiation is controlled by a preprogrammed timing algorithm chip embedded in the bandage and electronically initiated by peeling the backing from the bandage.

This product can be developed with UV LEDs, blue light LEDs, white light, and multi-wavelength LEDs, and can be offered in various sizes and shapes. Variants can include direct germicidal irradiation, photocatalyst activation, and molecule excitation emitters with high frequency pulsed and unpulsed configurations.
