Antimicrobial nanotextiles fighting infections
LAM-X is unlocking the full potential of nanofibers by adding antimicrobial properties.
Our smart textiles excel at eliminating harmful microbes without the use of heavy metals or toxic chemicals.
With our innovative and effective technology, we strive to prevent healthcare associated infections and enhance the life of patients around the world.
Our proprietary technology consists of a dense network of nanofibers that effectively prevents the passage of pathogens. The active compounds encapsulated into each nanofiber activate the sterilization process when light is shined upon them. This immediately eliminates any bacteria or viruses on the surface of the textile.
Microbial elimination with broad spectrum efficacy (resistant bacteria, viruses, and others) in a matter of minutes.*
No irritation or toxicity. No use of heavy metals.*
Option to adapt based on customer needs by using more than a dozen of different polymeric materials, including sustainable options.
* Tested at certified centers.
Smart solutions are at the core of all that we do at LAM-X. We aim to find smart ways of integrating our antimicrobial nanofiber technology into different textiles to build a better tomorrow for everyone, everywhere. Our antimicrobial material can be adapted to different products based on customer needs, by enabling periodic sterilization with harmless light irradiation we can upgrade your products to the next level.
The original idea for smart nanotextiles came from more than a decade of excellent academic research by Prof. Mosinger and his group at Charles University. After successful clinical testing of the first prototype wound dressing, the technology was ready for further developement and commercialisation by a newly established team.
LAM-X project "Nanofibrous materials with antimicrobial function activated by visible light" has been financed with the state support of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic within the TREND Programme (FW04020054).
In 2022, the company LAM-X a.s. received support from the European Structural and Investment Funds (ERDF), implemented through the Operational Programme "Research, Development and Education", through "Prague Smart Accelerator" project (reg. no. CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/18_055/0016956O). Support was provided for the preparation of the project proposal "Innovative bandages from photoactive material with antibacterial effect, making the treatment of chronic and poorly healing wounds more efficient" for Horizon Europe EIC Accelerator, the expected outcome was the submission of an application to this program. The project is co-financed by the European Union.
In 2020, the company LAM-X a.s. acquired support from the European Structural and Investment Funds, implemented through the Operational Programme "Prague - the Growth Pole of the Czech Republic", through 4th Prague Voucher call for innovation projects (reg. no. CZ.07.1.02/0.0/0.0/16_025/0000605). The support was aimed at the participation of the company LAM-X a.s. on the project "Active nanomaterials with antimicrobial function" implemented in Prague for the purpose of developing a photoactive nanofibrous material that is optimal in terms of spinnability in production conditions, mechanical properties, breathability and photoactive antimicrobial function. The expected output is a functional prototype. The project "Active nanomaterials with antimicrobial function" is co-financed by the European Union.
