about

CAMSTENT

Camstent is a privately funded Cambridge UK- based company, and through it’s unique anti-microbial polymer coating technology is able to dramatically reduce biofilms on consumable silicon-based medical devices. 


Camstent is addressing a global hospital acquired infection (HAI) epidemic which severely effects patients and hospital economics. HAIs are estimated to cost global healthcare systems up to $10Bn per annum and a large proportion of these are due to urinary tract infections associated with catheter use (CAUTIs).


Reducing biofilms ensures reduction in infection-related issues which cause discomfort to patients, longer hospitalisation, increased usage of anti biotics and higher costs.


Camstent’s first proof of concept device is a coated Foley Catheter which is in clinical studies in the UK. Earlier studies in a cohort of 95 patients have shown between 61%-98% reduction in biofilms on the Camstent-coated catheter.


Camstent is seeking:

  • Commercial partners for its coated Foley catheters

  • Collaboration projects for coating of new catheters and potentially other silicon medical device products where infections are an issue 

  • Licensing partners for its unique coating technology
