The Patent Office of the Australian Government has granted an additional patent for Quick-Technologies' NIMBUS technology.
The Australian Patent No. 2006283043 covers the process for non-leachably bonding the NIMBUS active agent to wound dressings and various other substrates.
NIMBUS is a antimicrobial technology custom designed for wound care and other medical applications.
Additional applications under development include advanced wound dressings, medical adhesives, and catheters.
Quick-Med R&D vice president Jerry Olderman said NIMBUS doesn’t leach or suffer depletion, doesn’t initiate bacterial resistance, doesn’t interfere with tissue healing and prevents odor generation.
The technology is protected by 10 US patents and patents pending and 24 foreign counterparts.
