Cuantum Medical Cosmetics offers novedous and simply solutions for daily care.
Due to the continuous R&D team’s improvement, Cuantum introduces a new product within its veterinarian product range intended for pets and small animals.
Cura Rápido Plus+ is an extension of the already existing Cuantum Cura Rápido. This new product maintains the properties of the original one but presents a higher viscosity that allows an easier, simpler and more efficient application.
On this way, Cuantum Medical Cosmetics keeps working in order to achieve excellence within the tissue adhesive field.
With the launch of the Sport, Home and Professional lines, Cuantum positions itself as an alternative to regular bandages that can be found nowadays in the market, through the offer of an innovative product indicated for minor wound closures and skin lacerations that may occur while doing daily activities.
Composed of n-butyl cyanoacrylate, Cuantum + que una tirita creates a flexible and waterproof layer that sloughs off as the thermal layer regenerates. The flexibility of the resulting protector film allows realizing any task without causing any discomfort.
In this way, Cuantum increases prominently the company’s portfolio, which is going to develop both standard monomers and tailor-made monomers with purity levels above 99,0%.
The cyanoacrylate medical grade standard monomers catalogue will feature basically three different compounds: 2-octyl cyanoacrylate, n-Hexyl cyanoacrylate and n-butyl cyanoacrylate. Those molecules may be supplied on regular basis and in a quantity range from lab to industrial ones.
The monomers production process will be done according to the current good manufacturing practices (cGMP).
On the other side, tailor-made monomers will be manufactured according to the client needs and wants, varying the side chain structure according to what is needed. Cuantum will carry out the synthetic pathway development and the lab scale supply, with the possibility of scaling up the process.
The NEOTEC-CDTI programme has as its main objective the creation and consolidation of new companies with scientific-technological base. The program targets small and innovative companies (of maximum 4 years old) with a business plan that requires the use of technology or know-how developed from the research activity and whose business strategy is focused in technology development.
“+ que una tirita” represents a major development in front of regular bandages that can be found nowadays in the market as it works as a second artificial skin by creating a protector film. Composed of n-butyl cyanoacrylate it creates a slim resistant waterproof layer that naturally sloughs off as the affected dermic area regenerates. Its easy application makes it a perfect ally to fight against cracks, scrapes, blisters, small wounds and cuts among others. The release date for the feet care line is planned for this March, and will be found in 3 different distribution channels such as parapharmacy, shoe shops and shoe repair shops.
The thesis, titled “Controlled living anionic polymerization of cyanoacrylates by frustrated Lewis pair based initiator” studied the controlled polymerization of cyanoacrylate adhesives, achieved for the first time in this work. The results obtained offer promising business opportunities, as well as new applications for commercial products composed of cyanoacrylates.
As a result, the achievement of new long chain cyanoacrylates with superior features than the ones currently available has been foreseen, together with new formulations that allow to reduce significantly the healing time and provide material with improved stability in front of physiological environments, offering to the market broadly desired solutions. The proposed methodology considers the characterization of the toxicological and biocompatibility profile of the formulations, as well as its efficacy profile “ex vivo” and “in vivo” into a veterinary surgical environment. Finally, the optimization and escalation of manufacturing processes will be treated, assuring the commercial exploitation of the obtained results.
