A3IS has a profound protective effect against common bee viruses, hive pathogens and pesticide exposure by a validated upregulation of a bee’s immune system by over 200%. The total economic value of pollination worldwide has been estimated at €153 billion annually and honeybees are often assumed to provide the majority of these services to agriculture.
Organisms when exposed to reactive oxygen species (ROS) at sub-lethal concentrations have demonstrated increased growth due to an adaptive response. This has been proven in organisms such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Human stem cells. Nektr technologies is now applying our unique ROS generating technology to tailor the optimum response in biofuel producing organisms by increasing growth and resilience.
Over 70% of the worlds antibiotics are used in animal husbandry every year. Between 2009 to 2015 antibiotic prescriptions increased by 96%. This has led to the emergence of many antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, which left unchecked could cause severe damage to the food chain with significant cost to farmers and consumers. Nektr has developed an exceptional technology ensuring the health and wellbeing of animals while contributing to carbon neutral farming practices.
Nektr’s potent antimicrobial technology A3IS is the only viable alternative to harsh antifungals and pesticides. A3IS only contains ingredients from the GRAS (generally recognised as safe) list. It has been shown to be extremely effective against the toughest drug resistant microbes, with no resistance observed to date. The potent effect of reactive oxygen species has also been shown to promote plant growth and wellbeing.
Water is our most essential resource, yet over 790 million people (11% global population) don’t have access to even the most basic drinking water facilities. Most of these people must drink from contaminated water sources containing pathogenic organisms such as Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora and Escherichia coli. Nektr’s A3IS technology has shown significant log reduction of bacteria in water samples within 30 minutes. A3IS is activated when exposed to moisture, its highly potent antimicrobial activity, and GRAS – Index components qualify it as an ideal candidate for personalised and larger scale water purification.
