The SoftOx (SoftOx Solutions AS) approach to develop an antimicrobial solution is to investigate naturally occurring chemicals that have been selected by nature to harbour broad antimicrobial effects without inducing resistance. The broad spectrum includes active and dormant bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi and spores including bacteria within their protective biofilm environment. Special focus has been given to combat the 12 pathogenic bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health (as addressed by WHO) and to harbour strong viricidal activity, to support the fight against viral epidemics / pandemics, caused by coronaviridae (like MERS-CoV,SARS-CoV-1and SARS-CoV-2), Influenza virus, Ebolavirus, Norovirus, Poliovirus among others.
Our scientific team has spent years together with leading experts at the universities of Skåne (Sweden) and Copenhagen (Denmark) in chemistry and microbiology respectively to find an innovative way of stabilizing the otherwise highly reactive chemical components. It was not easy, but we finally succeeded! The SoftOx Solution.
