Pertinax is a patent-protected, sustained release technology for chlorhexidine. It can be used as a filler component of materials for biomedical and other applications, and in topical agents for use on wounds and mucosa. 

Pertinax confers controlled, sustained antimicrobial efficacy which, depending on the application, can be formulated to last for weeks, months or years. In this way, Pertinax overcomes the short duration of antimicrobial activity found in current chlorhexidine products.
