Antimicrobial Contaminant Cap for Prosthetic Implants

This novel technology describes an antimicrobial contaminant cap for preventing infection at the implant-tissue interface for prosthetic implants. The cap is designed to slide along the pin, tube, post or any protruding material and would capture and contain antibacterial substances at the interface thereby preventing infection at the site.

The technology is very novel and such a concept or device does not exist commercially. The contaminant cap described will be a novel method of delivery and maintenance of anti-bacterial substances for an extended period of time at the external implant-tissue interface and has a promising market in the orthopedic implant industry.

Stage of Development
A PCT patent application has been filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and is pending. This technology is part of an active and ongoing research program and includes a working prototype. It is available for developmental research support/licensing under either exclusive or non-exclusive terms.
