C & C technology with unique and specific capabilities can be readily adapted to a wide range of applications to protect the human body from pathogens such as pollen, viruses, bacteria, and more. Polyrizon has developed a core platform technology to produce biological protective gels that act as a physical/chemical barrier to pathogens such as allergens, viruses, bacteria, fungi and other.

The Gel Capture and Contain Pathogenic particles encountered to human mucosal membranes; it prevents these particles from reaching target cells and activating the immune response. The gel containing the mentioned particles is then removed from the body via natural processes.
