De­vel­op­ment of a Method to Bind in Cy­to­tox­i­cs and Other High­ly Ef­fec­tive Drugs Phys­i­cal­ly with the Aid of Gels and Foams for the De­con­tam­i­na­tion and Sam­pling of Sur­faces (in Co­op­er­a­tion with the VEU, Duis­burg)

AiF 99 ZN

The sub­ject of the pro­ject which was car­ried out in co­op­er­a­tion with the As­so­ci­a­tion for En­vi­ron­men­tal Tech­nol­o­gy (VEU) as AiF-mem­ber-or­gan­i­sa­tion and the In­sti­tute for En­er­gy and En­vi­ron­men­tal Tech­nol­o­gy (IUTA), the Ger­man In­sti­tute for Food Tech­nol­o­gy (DIL) and the wfk-clean­ing tech­nol­o­gy re­search in­sti­tute, was the re­moval of residues of cy­to­tox­i­cs (an­ti­cancer drugs) from e.g. sur­faces in work bench­es. The an­a­lyt­i­cal part was per­formed by IUTA. DIL per­formed the de­vel­op­ment of the bind­ing agents and the wfk-re­search in­sti­tute de­vel­oped an ap­pli­ca­tion method.

Bi­o­log­i­cal bind­ing agents with a three-di­men­sion­al struc­ture and the abil­i­ty of a phys­i­cal in­clu­sion of con­tam­i­nants, prefer­ably in a non-se­lec­tive way, were de­vel­oped. These gelling or foam form­ing sys­tems must be able to cre­ate a ho­mo­ge­neous film, par­tic­u­lar­ly on large sur­faces. The in­flu­ence of rel­e­vant con­tam­i­na­tions on the gel and foam for­ma­tion was in­ves­ti­gat­ed.

We would like to thank the Ar­beits­ge­mein­schaft In­dus­trieller Forschungsvere­ini­gun­gen “Otto von Gu­er­icke” e.V. (AiF) (As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dus­tri­al Re­search Or­gan­i­sa­tions) for the fi­nan­cial sup­port of the reasearch pro­ject (AiF 99 ZN) fund­ed by the bud­get of the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Af­fairs.


The re­search re­port is avail­able on re­quest from FRT.

The IGF-pro­ject AiF 99 ZN of the re­search as­so­ci­a­tion Europäische Forschungs­ge­mein­schaft Reini­gungs- und Hy­gien­etech­nolo­gie e.V., Cam­pus Ficht­en­hain 11, 47807 Krefeld, was sup­port­ed with­in the fund­ing pro­gram „In­dus­trielle Gemein­schafts­forschung und -en­twick­lung (IGF)“ by the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Af­fairs and Cli­mate Ac­tion due to a de­ci­sion of the Ger­man Par­lia­ment.
