LaamScience Nears First Product Rollout

Abstract:
LaamScience Inc., Research Triangle Park, N.C., a start-up company that is developing commercial products based on light-activated antimicrobial nanotechnology, reports it has raised more than $2 million to fund continued research, business operations and marketing as it nears its first product rollout. The technology, developed by scientists at North Carolina State University's College of Textiles, Raleigh, N.C., and Atlanta-based Emory University, produces a coating that is activated by sunlight and other conventional light sources to render the surface of a material deadly to virtually all viruses and most bacteria, according to the company. LaamScience plans to offer products that will protect against influenza, cold and respiratory syncytial viruses; avian flu; SARS; West Nile virus; and biological warfare agents such as smallpox, Ebola and others.
