Purifect Technology

Purifect Technology is a class of cholic-acid based compounds which are non-peptide functional mimics of endogenous antimicrobial peptides (AMPs).

Purifect Technology is in all Ceragyn products.

Purifect technology molecules associate with bacterial membranes and then cause the formation of transitory pores in membranes resulting in depolarization of the membrane and leakage of cellular materials from the bacteria. These processes quickly lead to cell death.

Purifect Technology uniquely has the ability to enter biofilms and kill the sessile bacteria (a.k.a. persisters) which are very difficult  to eliminate. Therefore, the biofilms will be short lived and spreading minimized.
