Idea and Background

PERLAZID® keeps critical surfaces free of germs: PERLAZID® works as a Trojan horse: PERLAZID® is based on tricalciumphosphate (TCP) with a very low dose of silver (Ag) and copper (Cu). It is well known that silver (Ag) kills bacteria and fungi, whereas copper (Cu) especially kills fungi. The receptors of the germs recognize TCP as food and smuggle the low-dose active ingredient into the interior of the cell. Finally, all molecules containing sulfur (S) are attacked and destroyed by Ag and Cu. It creates silver sulfide. Thus, the cell is killed at the surface (and not denatured). The "waste", or the resulting products are biocompatible. Thus, the surfaces protects itself against germs!

Tests with PERLAZID®

CAS and ECHA-Numbers according to the active ingredients (but not Perlen Packaging):
- Silver: CAS: 7440-22-4 / EC: 231-131-3
- Copper: CAS: 7440-50-8 / EC: 231-159-6
- Tricalciumphosphate: CAS: 7758-87-4 / EC: 231-840-8

Patent and trademark protection, Logo

This process is new and patented. PERLAZID® is in the meantime patented in Europe, Japan, Canada and China (grant of a patent for the USA is in the last instance). In addition, a logo was designed that the protected area if necessary indicating (see signature):

Highlights and Benefits in brief

  1. The risk of infection is minimized: bacteria are killed off long term (germ reduction by more than 99.9% (> 3 log))
  2. Long-term protection because germs cannot build up resistance
  3. applicable to a wide variety of surfaces
  4. Dermatologically tested
  5. A hundred times-tested effectiveness
  6. Environmentally friendly
  7. Patented technology combines natural substances (tricalciumphosphate and silver / copper) to protect you against contamination

  8. Award-winning product (Swiss Chamber of Commerce, Packaging Award "Trophy d'Emballage 2013 (awarded by GISI in F) (According to the jury, PERLAZID® received the award because it "offers the best solution for the safety of the user and a real added value for the active packaging of medical, pharmaceutical and veterinary applications offers".
