Listen to the last episode:

Never has humanity given so much thought to the handles, the buttons, and the benchtops that surround us. The realities of life under the pandemic mean that every encounter with a surface becomes an interaction laden with dread. Not a bad time, then, to be harnessing the power of silver nano-particles to design anti-microbial- and potentially anti-viral- coatings that can be applied to surfaces in our hospitals, factories and across our daily lives. Eldon Tate is the founder and CEO of Inhibit Coatings and a finalist for the Norman Barry Foundation Breakthrough Innovator award in the eighth annual KiwiNet Research Commercialisation Awards.
