Antiviral nanomaterials join the fight against SARS-Cov-2

…….offer extended until end Sept 2020

Copper and silver have well reported antiviral properties, while gold nanoparticles are helping to deliver early detection and antibody tests for Covid-19. With up to 1000 times larger active surface area nanoparticles offer the potential for enhanced properties compared to simple 2D surfaces in addition to reduced material costs.

At Nikalyte we are keen to play our part in the fight against Covid-19. That is why we are offering free nanoparticle samples* to researchers investigating antiviral materials and surfaces. Tell us about your requirements and we will be glad to help.

* Valid for first samples for delivery to UK and Europe until the end of September 2020.
