Swiss innovator Osmotex has developed the Osmotex Steriliser Technology that the company says can make textiles and personal items virus and bacteria free. Osmotex has now launched the first series of masks for early adopters at the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. With the Covid-19 outbreak and other virus infections, the market for sterilising facemasks and personal items is increasing and Osmotex considers its solution a real breakthrough.

“With the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw new opportunities for our proprietary osmosis technology. To help make surfaces virus and bacteria free, we have developed the Osmotex Steriliser Technology which we are working to rapidly bring to the market,” says Joacim Holter, Chairman of the Board at Osmotex.

“In addition to the very high sterilising effect, the most important benefit of the technology is the fact that the effective sterilising happens within a few minutes,” says Holter.

According to the company, Osmotex Steriliser Technology is a unique and ground-breaking technology based on Osmotex’ core commercialized technology, electronically controlled moisture migration in fabrics based on an electro-osmotic and electro-chemical process. By applying an electric pulse, the Osmotex Steriliser technology effectively sterilise the textile and any objects in direct contact within minutes
