About Pertinax Pharma
Pertinax Pharma Ltd – originally a spin out from the university of Bristol – was established in April 2015 to commercialise its proprietary and patented Pertinax® technology.
The antimicrobial material has wide ranging potential application across wound care, dentistry, medical device, veterinary and broader markets. Pertinax provides controlled and sustained release of chlorhexidine (CHX) – overcoming the short duration of antimicrobial activity of conventional CHX products. The antimicrobial can be formulated to persist for days, weeks, months or years – depending on the application.
Pertinax requires lower quantities of CHX – with continuous antimicrobial function provided by less frequent applications – and it also exhibits lower cytotoxicity than equivalent concentrations of conventional CHX.
