Exciton partnered with the National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) for research and technical expertise to help expand the Edmonton-based company’s core technology platform: Ag Oxysalts™. Exciton’s proprietary technology leverages the antimicrobial properties of silver to create innovative, cost effective and safe products to prevent bacterial growth and the spread of infections. 

The Ag Oxysalts™ polymer composites developed by Exciton and NINT have numerous technical and marketing advantages. The new formulations enhance stability which results in a longer shelf life and the process to create the composites enables access to a larger number of medical substrates. By incorporating new materials and delivery platforms, Exciton now has much larger and global market access.
