Xerion’s first bioactive ingredient is AMYCOT®, an antimicrobial extract derived through a proprietary process from the microalgae Arthrospira maxima, that has a number of activities including:

  • anti-fungal (specific action against a major structural component of fungi cell walls)
  • anti-bacterial (against gram positive bacteria)
  • anti-viral (against Papilloma and Herpes simplex viruses)
  • anti-inflammatory
  • skin repair

AMYCOT® may therefore be regarded as a product platform and the first products to be commercialised are based primarily on AMYCOT®’s fungicidal activity under the brand Calmagen® with additional anti-inflammatory and skin repair benefits.

Xerion has acquired the exclusive license in Australia and a number of other countries to the PUFAcoat technology from world leading lipids and nutrition researcher Prof Robert Gibson of the FOODplus Research Centre at the University of Adelaide.

The PUFAcoat protection system comprises a combination of protectants on a defined collection matrix. PUFAcoat can protect against the oxidation of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA) in blood spots at ambient temperature for at least 2 months. PUFAcoat was found to prevent any significant loss in the level of the two most important omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, in blood spots following up to 2 months of storage at room temperature.
