We visited a black soldier fly farm and discovered its strong antibacterial abilities.
Globally, an estimated 6.7 million people suffer from chronic wounds.
Bacteria may enter blood through wounds and cause bacterial infection, which is the second-leading cause of death.
Multidrug-resistant bacteria have rendered antibiotics ineffective against chronic wounds and bacterial infections.
Traditional plastic plasters made of PVC take years to decompose, contributing to severe plastic pollution.
Antimicrobial peptides have a strong antibacterial ability. Our hydrogel plaster utilises antimicrobial peptides derived from BSF to kill bacteria in wounds, preventing bacterial infections and chronic wounds.
Our hydrogel plaster is made up of the shell of BSF, which is biodegradable and takes only a few weeks to decompose.
