Organization Description:
Q Biotechnologies Ltd is a progressive organisation that develops, manufactures and distributes under exclusive license, products for disease prevention. Our portfolio includes rapid and accurate testing, persistent surface and skin disinfectants and capital equipment.
We are interested in TB because we have international distributors of our persistent SiQuat Q Shield. This has been used in South Africa to prevent TB/HIV and fungal infections in mine workers. We intend to conduct further research in country on early diagnosis to prevent the spread of infection. We would like to get involved with national and international projects for prevention, early detection and sharing best practice. Our SiQuat is currently being used in hospital studies to prevent SSIs, we actively share this data to encourage a new emphasis on prevention rather than cure. Dr Kemp is involved with leading microbiologists in the NHS, to write a new environmental cleaning directive which we would hope can be incorporated into every setting to reduce infection rates.
