Project summary: leading supplier of antimicrobial wet and dry wipes looks to expand capability and develop new products with virucidal and tuberculocidal efficacy
The challenge: A specialist in Infection Prevention Technology, GAMA Healthcare manufactures innovative antimicrobial products; and as the largest supplier of wet and dry wipes in the United Kingdom (with at least one of the products used in every National Health Service hospital), GAMA wanted to consolidate its market leading position by expanding its range of biocidal products to include claim for virucidal and tuberculocidal efficacy.
The solution: a KTP with Cardiff University (CU) enabled a translational project focusing on infection control, a central theme to Professor Maillard’s research.
Results of the collaboration include:
“It is an absolute honour to be a finalist for the KTP award. It reflects the incredibly hard work of a team; the associate, the industrial and academic supervisors, the KTP office and the KTP adviser; and it is a tribute to the fantastic support from the industrial partner, the drive and ambition to make the best products to be deployed in healthcare settings to protect staff and patients from infections, which is highly topical with the current COVID-19 pandemic” Jean-Yves Maillard, Professor of Pharmaceutical Microbiology at Cardiff University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
