Simple Solutions to Complex Infections


Our bodies are home to trillions of microbes – bacterial, fungal, and viral – and our surroundings are filled with billions of trillions more.  Our lives are dependent on these microbes, but also can be seriously harmed by them when they multiply out of control, invade areas of our bodies they are not meant to be in, or our immune systems are compromised.

In those instances, intervention is often necessary to help our bodies bring the “invaders” back under control. Those interventions typically include antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals, though even more extreme measures such as amputation are sometimes necessary. For a number of decades this worked well and deaths from infections plummeted. Then, “the bugs started getting used to the drugs.” They developed resistance not just to one drug, but increasingly have become multi-drug resistant. According to the CDC, 40% of healthcare associated infections are now multi-drug resistant, making it increasingly more challenging to treat and prevent serious infections.

Multi-drug resistance is now considered one of the top 5 human health crises. The 2016 O’Neill report in the UK projects that by 2050, 10 million people (1 person every 3 seconds) will die of infections annually. That’s more than Cancer, Diabetes, and Cholera combined.

 At Ondine, that’s not a future we’re willing to accept.

The world needs a new approach and new solutions. For the past 17 years, the dedicated team at Ondine have been developing and perfecting exactly that: a revolutionary non-antibiotic technology that is capable of treating and preventing multi-drug resistant infections.

Imagine …

  • a technology that destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi and their virulence factors in minutes

  • immediate antimicrobial impact, no adverse side effects

  • no need to test for what is causing or may cause the infection, saving the critical time and cost for diagnosis

  • being able to use the technology without worrying about its use triggering resistance

Ondine’s patented photodisinfection platform technology is designed and has been proven to do exactly this. Ondine is developing applications with this breakthrough technology to prevent and treat a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, such as:

  • Surgical site infections
  • Catheter and ventilator associated infections
  • Dental applications
  • Wounds and burns
  • Chronic sinusitis and otitis externa
  • Transmission of infections from mother to child during birth
  • Veterinary applications
