We develop solutions that help treat simple infections of the urinary tract

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a frequent occurrence that largely affects the female population. It is estimated that one in two women suffers from a urinary tract infection during her life, with an annual incidence of 12.6%. (1)
The pathogen that most frequently causes this type of infections is Escherichia coli less frequently, other bacteria, viruses or fungi can also be responsible. (2)
Urinary tract infections can also affect men, especially during invasive diagnostic investigations such as prostatic transrectal biopsy.
