The Science of Byotrol


Killing germs and other microbes is easy. It’s the combination of safety, gentleness and persistence that has never been done before.

The Old World

For the last 100 years cleaners like bleaches, disinfectants and germicides have been the primary weapons in our battle against microbes. Based largely on pre-war technology these products all work on the same basic principle. They kill microbes by simply poisoning them or they destroy them with chemical burns.

While effective on one level this approach does come at a price. The most immediate is that some products can be toxic or at worst poisonous, damaging and indiscriminate.

For old fashioned technologies, with no long-lasting effect the field is clear for bacteria and other microbes to quickly re-colonise. Their staggeringly fast reproduction rates means that a single, surviving bacteria can produce up to 8 million descendants in one day!

The New World

Byotrol is a revolution. It works in a different way. Byotrol keeps on working for hours, even days.

Byotrol tackles the problem of microbes by getting down to their level, and using a more certain way of eliminating all the millions of different types of bugs by focusing on the one thing that is common to all micro-organisms…their size!

Microbes are tiny; rather than using only a chemical action Byotrol uses revolutionary Amphicelles™ which affect tiny things in a big way. The result is a physical action that is devastating to the microbe’s invisible world, but almost undetectable at human scale.

Byotrol’s Amphicelles™ literally pull the microbes apart, ripping them open and utterly destroying them and then protecting surfaces. The result; a microscopic barrier that’s invisible to the naked eye, can’t be felt by human hands, but protects surfaces and keeps them cleaner for longer.

This structure also means that less chemicals can deliver excellent antimicrobial efficacy and deliver a safe and gentle solution for you and your family.

Byotrol uses ground-breaking abrasion testing methodologies to analyze and compare the performance of disinfectants and antimicrobial technologies in ‘real world’ situations. This research has identified that the superior performance delivered by Byotrol is extremely relevant where antimicrobial control is critical to industries such as Healthcare, Food Manufacturing and Agriculture. In the home this gives you the peace of mind to know that you and your family are genuinely protected from the invisible world of germs.

A 3 year research program in collaboration with the University of Manchester’s Organic Materials Innovation Centre has delivered a firm understanding of the linkage between solution structure, film morphology and antimicrobial performance which is the basis of the Byotrol Technology. This groundbreaking study has led to the development of a wide range of targeted antimicrobial products which are changing the world of hygiene forever!

Byotrol Polyshpere and Hand Sanitizer can deliver amazing results.
