THE CLICK-ON MEDICAL DEVICE
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs) have been reported as the most common hospital-acquired infection worldwide, being responsible for up to 40 % of all hospital-acquired infections.

PREVENTING URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) have been reported as the most common hospital acquired infection in the world being responsible for up to 40% of all hospital infections, with more than 1 million cases per year in the US alone.
Approximately 25 % of hospitalized patients will undergo urinary catheterization, and nearly 30 % of these will develop CAUTI.
The risk of getting a urinary tract infection (UTI) among catherized patients is estimated to be up to 10 % per day, while 100 % are expected to have a UTI after 3 weeks of catherization.
The bacteria are capable of adhering to catheter surfaces in bacterial communities known as biofilm, having greater resistance to the natural immune system of the host as well as being almost resistant to antimicrobials and virtually impossible to eradicate without removing the catheter.
VIOBAC has invented a solution to the problem.
By using a small, unique, patented click-on medical device, we aim to prevent catheter associated infections with simple germicidal UV-technology.
This could potentially be the first prophylactic approach with clinical significant effect.
The solution is developed to prevent bacteria from getting into the patients urinary tract system - and will thereby prevent unnecessary urinary tract infections from happening when using a catheter.
The visions of VIOBAC are driven by two medical doctors with true patient and hospital experience, in collaboration with more than 10 life science professionals including expertise within the fields of microbiology, design- and electromechanics, IP, product purchase and regulatory affairs.
The right IP rights and essential in the world of medical technology.
Our solution has national and international (PCT) patent pending.
The efficacy of our solution has now been proven in professional laboratory settings. We continue to gather firm evidence.
We have partnered up with a major developer of medical equipment in order to optimize our product and regulatory demands.
VIOBAC has been voted the best university startup in the world within the health category with incorporation of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, 2019.
