Interesting Aegis® Facts
AEGIS is the most widely used antimicrobial in the world with case studies and registrations dating back to 1970.
- AEGIS is the ONLY bonding antimicrobial to have global registrations.
- AEGIS has been registered with Health Canada since the mid 1990’s and the US EPA since 1970.
- AEGIS is manufactured by DOW Chemical and globally owned by Microban with PROTECT as the global distributor for the aftercare market.
- If you are wearing Nike, Reebok, Adidas, UnderArmour or Rockport shoes – then you are already wearing AEGIS. Each of these apparel companies use AEGIS in their products to control and prevent microbial growth in their shoes, socks, shirts etc.
In our opinion, any facility in which animals (or humans) come together for short periods of time can benefit from Aegis® – aerosolized or shed particles can be rendered ineffective, before other animals (people) are at placed at risk. In livestock setting, those areas that cannot be cleaned to ‘hospital level standards’ on a daily basis can really benefit from this product.
West Wind Veterinary Hospital Ltd.
We are extremely happy with the results. We can report the mould has not returned, and all odours associated to the mould and mildew have been removed. The complex is back to full use again – something that we were not sure we could accomplish before working with Strathcona Ventures's Microbe Defence.
Village of Ryley Pool and Rec Center
Microbe Defence™ staff were professional and careful with our guests, equipment, and site. Of particular note was that immediately following the treatment the odour within the grooming area was dramatically reduced. Due to the nature of this service, smell has always been a concern. Additionally, we find cleaning treated surfaces easier. Although Bordetella remains in the community, we are thrilled that since the treatment we have not had a case reported! We are happy with this once per year treatment and would highly recommend it to our colleagues.

AEGIS is a cationic antimicrobial that’s attracted to the microbe’s cell wall and neutralizes the cell wall’s natural protection by interacting with cellular proteins needed to maintain cell wall integrity. Its charge-disruption mode of action leads to the eventual breakdown of the microbial cell (also known as lysis).
