In the dynamic landscape of modern laboratories, where personnel frequently share equipment across overlapping workstations situated in high-traffic areas and bustling instrument zones, the risk of microbial contamination is a concern. Mitigating this risk becomes paramount, and the implementation of antimicrobial products within your lab environment emerges as a crucial strategy.

By seamlessly integrating antimicrobial solutions, such as Biomaster, laboratories can address the specific challenges posed by shared workspaces and high-traffic areas. This proactive measure not only complements existing laboratory hygiene protocols but also significantly contributes to the prevention of microbial contamination, ensuring a cleaner and safer environment for scientific endeavours.


Antimicrobial technology for laboratories

Encouraging good laboratory practice (GLP) helps researchers to ensure that data generated through their experiments is not only valid but of high quality too.

In hygiene critical environments such as laboratories, cleaning and decontamination is crucial to prevent cross-contamination of bacteria and other microorganisms, promote a safe working environment and safeguard test results from impurities.

Regular cleaning and disinfecting can be key to reducing the number of microorganisms on surfaces and equipment, but antimicrobial lab equipment can provide additional benefits and an added level of protection.


Antimicrobial technology for lab apparatus and equipment

Even while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, regular hand contact with apparatus and equipment in the laboratory can pose a risk of cross-contamination.

Disinfection and thorough cleaning will remove harmful microbes and contaminations but can only be effective for a short amount of time.

Incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial protection for lab equipment casings, control dials, handles and tubing at the time of manufacture can inhibit the growth of microorganisms for the effective working lifetime of the product, even with regular use and hand contact.

Antimicrobial technology for walls, floors and surfaces

Walls, floors and work surfaces can all act as exposure pathways for harmful microbes to contaminate experiment and pose a risk of infection.

For stainless steel workbenches and cabinets, Biomaster antimicrobial powder coatings can offer durable and effective antimicrobial protection even when applied after manufacture.

Antimicrobial paints and coatings with built-in Biomaster technology help to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi and create a more hygienic working environment when used in conjunction with regular cleaning regimes.


Antimicrobial lab coats and uniforms

Whilst lab coats and uniforms should be washed with detergent regularly and at higher temperatures, these materials can also provide an opportunity for bacteria to contaminate results.

Fabrics constructed with built-in Biomaster protection benefit from around the clock protection against harmful microbes and can be used in any fibre manufacturing process including PA (Nylon), PE (Polypropylene) PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) and PP (Polypropylene) melt blend textiles

Biomaster can also be applied as an antimicrobial topical spray to any textile to make it more hygienic and reduce bad odours whilst providing effective product protection against viruses such as Norovirus.

Features & benefits

  • Independent testing

    All of our antimicrobial treated solutions are independently tested at a leading laboratory to ISO 22196 to ensure of a high quality efficacy against the microbes your product and end application requires.

  • Free of charge samples

    We can provide free-of-charge antimicrobial samples for you to test to ensure that incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial technology into your range of laboratory products is as straightforward as possible.

  • Expert support - with no licence fees

    Unlike other antimicrobial additive suppliers, there are no licence fees for using our technology.  You get the support of our technical, regulatory and marketing experts free of charge to help make your product a success.

How Biomaster works

Biomaster can be added at any stage of the manufacturing process and is available in masterbatch, liquid or powder formulations for plastics, textiles, paper and coatings.

When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the active antimicrobial agent prevents them from growing, producing energy or replicating, inhibiting any further growth.

The controlled release of the active ingredient provides powerful, effective antimicrobial protection for the lifetime of the product.
