The Science Behind Green Guardian Eliminator
Complex Polypeptide Protein as an Emulsifier, Silicates as Reservoirs (Porous Carriers)
The scientists behind Eliminator are familiar with the use of complex polypeptide protein molecules in medical implant procedures and with the pharmaceutical concept and use of porous carriers. As a protection against bacterial and viral infections implant devices are first coated with a polypeptide protein solution. When bacteria and virus come in contact with the protecting protein barrier, their outer membrane is dissolved or emulsified. This kills the bacteria or virus and prevents infection. Anyone that has taken an encapsulated medicine time delayed to be released in the digestive tract rather than the mouth has experienced the effect of a porous carrier.
Because polypeptide protein molecules are particularly complex and susceptible to modification having suitable donor and acceptor groups, it was reasoned that these molecules could be bio-engineered to interact with the esters that form the waxy outer layer of the bed bug and other morphologically similar insects. The interaction would cause the ester to dissolve or emulsify, thereby permitting inner fluids to be released by evaporation. This process kills. Human beings and other mammals do not have waxy outer layers held in place by ester bonds and are therefore unaffected.
