GrapheneCA’s antimicrobial graphene-enhanced coatings pass primary independent test

Graphene supplier and product manufacturer Nano Graphene (d/b/a GrapheneCA) has announced that its antibacterial products have shown to be 99.9% effective in making various surfaces bacteria proof according to ASTM E2180 testing protocol for determining antimicrobial activity of polymeric materials. This follows GrapheneCA's April 2020 launch of its online store to sell these new “Dr. Nano” anti-bacterial coatings.

GrapheneCA’s Dr. Nano Flooring and Dr. Metal product lines image

GrapheneCA’s Dr. Nano Flooring and Dr. Metal product lines have been shown in an independent laboratory test to provide exceptional antimicrobial protection of different surfaces. The coatings demonstrated exceptional activity against gram-positive and gram-negative, antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause severe respiratory infections, among other things. The proprietary formula in the graphene-improved, water-based epoxy coatings blocks the metabolism of microorganisms by restricting cellular respiration and cell division on surfaces.

Researchers develop a graphene-based technology that enhances the ability to communicate with neural cells

A team led by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University which also included researchers from the University of Chicago, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of North Carolina has created a new technology that enhances scientists' ability to communicate with neural cells using light.

Tzahi Cohen-Karni, associate professor of biomedical engineering and materials science and engineering, led a team that synthesized three-dimensional fuzzy graphene on a nanowire template to create a superior material for photothermally stimulating cells. NW-templated three-dimensional (3D) fuzzy graphene (NT-3DFG) enables remote optical stimulation without need for genetic modification and uses orders of magnitude less energy than available materials, preventing cellular stress.

First Graphene to supply PureGRAPH to Aquatic Leisure Technologies swimming pools

First Graphene (FGR) has entered an agreement with Aquatic Leisure Technologies (ALT) to supply PureGRAPH products over the next two years. ALT is an Australian family business, considered an industry leader in pool innovations.

Incorporating First Graphene's PureGRAPH graphene powders into the new range of pools will enable a brand new construction process to provide the next generation of fibreglass pool technology.

planarTECH IDEATI graphene mask - hands on review

planarTECH recently launched its 2AM graphene-enhanced face masks, in collaboration with IDEATI. The company (which is now in the last two days of its successful crowdfunding financing round in our Graphene Crowdfunding Arena) was kind enough to send us a few samples of the masks for a short hands-on review.

The face mask has a design that uses unique graphene and other carbon nanomaterials coatings that take advantage of graphene's antibacterial and antistatic properties. The coating has been certified by the Thailand Textile Institute to reduce staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538) bacteria by 99.95% within a 24 hour period, and it also repels dust. The mask is washable and reusable (up to 10 times).
