About Innovotech Inc:

Innovotech is a product development company focusing on the development of solutions to medical, agricultural and industrial problems caused by microbial biofilms. Biofilms are protected communities of microorganisms which are very common and very difficult to treat due to their inherent resistance. The company currently has two products in advanced stages of development: bioFILM PA is a diagnostic kit which assists physicians in the selection of the most effective antibiotic treatment of patients with chronic lung infections. AgressTM is a novel seed treatment product which protects seeds during the critical germination and emergence stage from bacterial and fungal infection. Both products were developed against the corresponding organisms present as biofilms as opposed to the free-floating, planktonic form.
