Biovert™ Enzyme & Substrate
Biovert™ mimics a naturally occurring antimicrobial-antioxidant protection system. When the two-part system is combined, a cascade of linked reactions takes place to generate antimicrobial products in situ. The cascade is initiated by the action of the glucose oxidase enzyme in the presence of its substrate (glucose) and oxygen. This generates H2O2 , which is used by the lactoperoxidase to catalyze the oxidation of I- and SCNanions, forming hypoiodite and hypothiocyanate which have antimicrobial activity. The result is rapid microbial cell death expression.
