PhotoTherix™ contributes to the repair of a surgical site or wound whilst allowing antimicrobial activity on-demand. This light-activated system reduces the use of antibiotics and does not contribute to antimicrobial resistance, prolongs construct/implant survival and promotes successful tissue repair.

  • PhotoTherix is designed to promote repair in dental and wound applications
  • Novel photodynamically active fibres (PAFs) confer additional benefit of released antimicrobial activity via photodynamic therapy on-demand
  • Light-activated reactive oxygen species are cytotoxic to bacteria
