Idea Name: Nano Coating
Slogan: Big steps with small things
Startup Domain: Good healh & well-being
Abstract:
    Nosocomial Infection is caused by bacterial pathogens in hospital. To prevent this infection, we coat surgical blade & surgical fabric with silver nanoparticles as they possess antibacterial property.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    According to WHO, nosocomial infections are considered as leading cause of deaths. In USA, these infections occur in about 5-10% of patients admitted in hospitals. In order to minimize or eradicate nosocomial infections, we provide antibacterial coating of AgNPs on surgical blade & surgical fabric.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Our potential benefactors will be each and every individual weather it is a common person or patient admitted in hospital.
How will the solution works
    Silver nanoparticles has been known for its antibacterial activities. These nanoparticles along with PDAC are layer-by-layer deposited on surgical fabric and electrochemically deposited on surgical blade. This coating provides an ultimate solution as it prevent bacterial colonization on surface of blade and fabric.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    As such there are no specific competitors. Our solution is a novel approach to deal with nosocomial infections.
