Summary of the technology

Innoventions a privately owned medical device incubator in Israel is developing several technologies ( One of these is a novel biofilm repelling technology. This was used for creating a urethral catheter for reducing (hopefully for preventing) Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) which cause 13,000 deaths in the USA each year. Their preliminary work showed that using their material (known/ approved biomaterial) , they could prevent biofilm forming on balloons immersed in infected urine and also on balloons inserted into the bladder of non-infected patients (up to 3 months).
They are interested to further develop the devices with partners based on this technology for catheter and other medical applications (also in non-medical applications such as on surfaces of open water reservoirs, water based liquid carrying pipes, water heaters etc.) and bring them to the market.
