Hungarian Company’s Invention Could Help Treat Spreading Infections

Hungary Today 2023.11.02.

A Hungarian invention could put an end to hospital-acquired infections around the world, reports Világgazdaság. Resysten Hungary Kft. is a Hungarian biotechnology company with a ten-year history. It started as a family business and is now a global company with a presence in many countries around the world.

The company’s so-called durable hygiene coating, manufactured in Hungary, keeps pathogens away from frequently affected surfaces for a year.

This coating is invisible, colorless, and odorless. It uses the properties of photo-oxidation to neutralize harmful substances, meaning it uses the energy of the photons that hit the surface to protect it from viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. This process can reduce the number of bacteria and microbes on any surface by up to 99 percent. The protective coating effectively supports cleaning and disinfection protocols and contributes to more sustainable operation of companies and institutions.

It can be a breakthrough because

the rise in hospital-acquired infections is one of the biggest challenges facing healthcare worldwide.

In healthcare institutions, cleaning with disinfectants several times a day cannot effectively compete against infections. Pathogens are constantly being introduced into common areas and patient rooms. Traditional disinfection methods are highly effective after treatment, but this effect wears off quickly. This leaves surfaces unprotected, meaning that they are able to transmit infections.

The advantage of Resysten’s coating system is that it is incorporated into the surface at the molecular level and cannot be removed by conventional cleaning methods (e.g. chemical wiping), so it can continue to work.

This is not just the company’s claim, as the effectiveness of the innovation has already been confirmed by several Hungarian hospitals.

These institutions have used Resysten’s surface treatment process, and environmental bacteriological sampling has revealed fewer pathogens. The process has also been a success in a number of European hospitals and social care institutions, such as

  • In the Czech Republic, the Military University Hospital in Prague reduced contamination by 92.7 percent on tested surfaces
  • The National Health Service (NHS), a group of institutions in England, showed a 93 percent reduction in pathogens.

Furthermore, the range of applications is extremely wide: public transport, shopping centers, sports facilities, production halls, and public areas have also been treated with the Hungarian company’s special hygienic protective coating.
