Who are we?
TRACTIVUS is a spin-off from the research group GEMAT (IQS-Ramón Llull University) and IDIBELL (Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute), located in Barcelona. We are an innovative company with expertise in antibacterial coatings, easy to be implemented on a wide range of medical devices.
PHOBOSTech™ technology have been developed over the years as a solution to the current problems of medical devices. Our cost-effective patented technology allows to create nanostructures on the surface, preventing bacteria attachment and, therefore, bacteria colonization. As a result our devices show higher lifetime, lower associated costs, and no post-implantation problems without adverse effect on the patients.
Tractivus combines the experience of the research groups and a unique solution designed to root out the colonization of the devices through a micro- and nano-structured coating that protects the device from adhesion and bacterial colonization. The team has worked on all aspects of the development: material selection, regulatory strategy, risk reduction, clinical trials, partners, stakeholders... aiming to maximize the success of both the project and the investors.
