Welcome to Amicoat

Amicoat develops and commercializes groundbreaking antimicrobial technology based on nature's own defense mechanisms. Our focus is on antimicrobial agents that inhibit bacterial growth and the formation of biofilms. We offer a highly promising solution to the growing global antibiotic resistance epidemic. Our peptides, when in contact with bacteria, induce rapid bactericidal activity and nearly instantaneous bacterial cell death, before mechanisms of resistance can be conferred.

Tough on bacteria. Benign on environment.
Our main product, AMC-109, induces rapid bacterial cell death by disrupting the structural integrity of the bacterial cell membrane, resulting in cell lysis. Due to the rapid mechanism of action, bacteria do not have the opportunity to acquire resistance through conjugation or transformation. Our product is backed by extensive efficacy and safety data. Efficacy has also been demonstrated with viruses and fungi.
