SelenBio: Fast Facts


Who here is a germaphobe? Who here at least appreciates a lack of infection after dental work or surgery? How about lower health or pet care premiums? Seldox™ can help.

SelenBio has developed a revolutionary compound known as Seldox that kills germs on contact. It can shield tools, disposable materials, and even tooth enamel from biofilm formation, permanently stopping disease-causing bacteria before damage is caused. 


That Germaphobe Life

 

Sliding through a closing door without touching it. Counting the seconds while washing hands. We know all the tricks.

For all their effort, patients shouldn't also have to think about bacteria while they’re at the dentist or undergoing surgery. These places are usually as sterile as things get, but there’s always room for improvement. 

DENTISTS
o  Plaque, caused by bacteria, is the number one battle
    in dentistry. Plaque creates cavities and white spot
    lesions, among other ailments  

o  Fluoride and toothpaste are only effective while being
     used 

HOSPITALS 
o  It costs almost $10 billion annually to treat only the
    top 5 
hospital acquired infections

o  Infection and non-healing wounds lead to longer
    recovery times, 
risk of complication, suffering, and
    increased expenses 

OPTOMETRISTS
o  76.5% of contact users who contract keratitis, or an
    infection of the cornea, are prescribed
an
    antimicrobial
 medication. Treatment costs about
    $175M annually   

 

VETERINARIES
o  Pet care is a $17.7B industry and growing
o  There is currently no preventative measures for oral
     infections such as periodontal  
disease, and wound
     care is also left wanting 

And after all that? There are so many more industries with germ problems. 


Put the Lysol Away

 

The impact that germs have on our daily lives is intimidating, it’s true. But fear not, SelenBio has developed a better way to deal with bacteria that has almost unlimited potential.

Seldox is an organic, liquid compound containing selenium that is proven to neutralize bacteria on contact. This compound can be bonded to tools, bandages, and even applied directly to teeth using dental sealant and orthodontic primer.

 


One and Done

 

Seldox is a compound that can be applied to many different substrates, but the coating itself is not what kills germs. 

Seldox, which contains selenium, is applied to a substrate
o  The compound produces a superoxide radical “force field” that kills bacteria
     upon contact 
Seldox will generate this force field and prevent biofilm formation as long as
    oxygen is present 



Because Seldox itself is not the antibacterial, it doesn’t need to leave the substrate to remain effective and therefore doesn’t lose potency as time goes on.

What does that mean in practice? Seldox antimicrobial technology only requires one application with no upkeep. That’s it.

SelenBio has made great strides into the dental and healthcare markets, and plans to branch out once their foothold is solidified.
