What is BIOZINY?

BIOZINY is a set of Advanced Materials based Antimicrobial Technologies for Surfaces and Spaces


BIOZINY Fabric + is an Antimicrobial Coating that can be applied to healthCare or Cubicle Curtains to impart Antimicrobial Properties & thereby keeping them free from pathogens that cause Nosocomial Infections.


Why BIOZINY Fabric+?

A hospital’s curtains must be able to withstand:


Heavy use by multiple people


Stains, undesirable odors, and fluids




Microbial attacks

It has been observed that:


Hospital curtains are a potential source for the dissemination of healthcare-associated pathogens[1].


It has been found that 42% of hospital privacy curtains were contaminated with vancomycin-resistant enterococci, 22% with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and 4% with Clostridium difficile, and these pathogens are easily acquired on hands[1].


Data suggest that hospital curtains have the potential to contribute to contamination of HCWs’ hands, the major source of transmission of nosocomial pathogens[1].


Some studies have shown that after hanging for 14 days MRSA is found in most curtains. By the 21st day, almost all curtains exceeded 2.5 CFU/cm2 Curtains are a source of cross-contamination in hospitals[2].


One study has shown that the rate of MRSA Contamination is found to be 92%[3].


It has been found that hand imprint cultures were positive for one or more pathogens after contacting surfaces near 34 (53%) of 64 study patients, with Staphylococcus Aureus and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus being the most common isolates indicating there has been Acquisition of Nosocomial Pathogens on Hands After Contact With Environmental Surfaces Near Hospitalized Patients [4].

Pathogens that cause nosocomial infection remain alive on surfaces for not only days but months. Below is a study showing the time period for which various pathogens remain alive on surfaces and multiply[5].

BIOZINY Fabric+ helps protect Patients and Health Care Workers from acquiring Nosocomial Infections.
