AS WE ENTER THE 21ST CENTURY, MORE THAN 30,000 PEOPLE A DAY ARE DYING WORLDWIDE FROM WATERBORNE DISEASES DUE TO MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION.

Apyron has devoted several years to demonstrating and developing an antimicrobial technology to defend against both disease causing and nuisance microorganisms. Apyron's MB2000 technology allows the synthesis of known antimicrobial agents such as Copper, Silver, Manganese, and Zinc with various support materials to create an innovative line of chemical media than can be used to purify water in large centralized treatment facilities, point-of-use (POU) devices, point-of-entry (POE) applications, and industrial process waters. Our microbial inhibitors are an ideal pretreatment to activated carbon filtration, membrane and ion exchange processes to prevent fouling and extend process life. They can be employed in a variety of fixed bed or filtration devices for aqueous and air applications.

The MB2000 product line is designed to kill and control microorganisms from a host of aqueous solutions:
  • Drinking water
  • Swimming pools and spas
  • Medical and dental processes
  • Industrial process waters
Benefits of the technology include:
  • Imparts no odor or off-taste
  • Effective against wide range of microorganisms
  • Short contact times achieve high efficiency
  • Safe to handle and chemically stable
  • Applicable for use in many POU and POE devices
  • Effective for potable and non-potable water applications
  • Retains performance in high hardness waters
  • Requires no sophisticated controls, electricity or instrumentation to operate
  • Remains effective over broad pH and temperature range
  • Extractable metals are controlled to below drinking water standards
  • Mitigates regrowth of pathogenic bacteria in filters
Of course, there are many possible future applications of our technology to the industrial antimicrobial market, including:
  • Sanitizers and disinfectants used in hospitals
  • Biocidal paints/coatings
  • Personal skin care
  • Blood purification
  • Infectious disease prevention
