BioMin Technologies Ltd was established in 2014 to commercialise research conducted over the past decade at Queen Mary University London and Imperial College, London, to develop bioactive glass materials to reduce tooth sensitivity, help replace lost mineral from tooth surfaces and protect against tooth decay.

BioMin’s technology received the 2013 Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers’ Venture Prize for innovation. BioMin’s technology is based on two key patent applications. The first is on Fluoride containing bioactive glasses. The second is on Chloride containing bioactive glasses.

BioMin Technologies work with Cera Dynamics Ltd to create the bioactive glasses.
