Camstent Ltd. is a platform medical materials and coating process company based in Cambridge, UK. Patent protected coatings are applied to indwelling consumable medical products, such as catheters, tubes, and stents, which greatly reduce the bioburden that can accumulate thereby helping to prevent hospital-acquired infections (HAI). The Company does not invent novel medical devices, but enhances consumables developed and approved by third party device manufacturers. The Company has invested several years of R&D in this field and has a significant IP portfolio.
Camstent's first commercial product will be a Foley Catheter that aims to prevent catheter-acquired urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Derivative and supplemental formulations will target other medical devices that have been identified.
