Alberta Innovates' long-term and ongoing support for cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) research and commercialization has yielded a made-in-Alberta discovery involving CNC-infused biofilm that could revolutionize treatment of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in medical facilities everywhere.
CNC is a novel biomaterial derived from wood fibre, often touted for its remarkable characteristics. For example, it has valuable optical properties, as demonstrated by this biofilm breakthrough.
