NIA supports the ongoing innovation and commercialisation of the next generation of technologies and promotes their safe and reliable advancement.
Sri Lanka's first ever antibacterial stationary collection, result of a collaboration between Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (SLINTEC) and Atlas, was unveiled on the 18th September at the Colombo International Book Fair. The event was attended by Asitha Samaraweera (Managing Director, Atlas), Dr. Azeez Mubarak (Chief of Research and Innovation, SLINTEC), Dr. Sanjeewa Wijesinghe (Senior Research Scientist, SLINTEC), Dr. Rangika De Silva (Head of Technology Transfer, SLINTEC), and a number of executives from Atlas.
The stationary range, which has an antibacterial efficacy of 99.9%, is based on SLINTEC Sterile, a technology developed by SLINTEC initially as a transparent antimicrobial coating.
