The Science

CodiKoat's unique solution uses weak electric current to eradicate virus particles. Our technology alters the surface charge characteristic of virus particles, destabilising the electrokinetic properties of the viruses and forcing them together. The aggregated viral particles then lose their ability to enter host cells and are rendered inactive. This mechanism happens in a short time scale (< 10 seconds) producing a fast-acting inactivation of viral particles and harmful bacteria.
