About GERMAGIC Technology

The essence of GERMAGIC MAP-1 technology is using encapsulation technology for controlled-release of active antimicrobials. MAP-1 is applicable to multiple disciplines, such as air sanitation, water sanitation and waste management.

All GERMAGIC products have undergone vigorous testing and scientific research to ensure high efficiency and quality performance. Our third-party test sites cover China, UK and USA.


GERMAGIC Thyme is our second product in the GERMAGIC series. It combines antimicrobial encapsulation with germicidal thyme essential oil for a more long-lasting and durable effect.

Our research team has identified thyme essential oil to be the most potent amongst hundreds of other natural essential oils. Thymol, a terpene from thyme, plays the prominent role in thyme essential oil’s antimicrobial effect.


GERMAGIC Thyme is wide spectrum and has been tested against multiple bacteria, fungi and viruses. GERMAGIC Thyme was found to be effective against Feline calicivirus (FCV), a surrogate for Norovirus. As FCV is a small, non-enveloped virus, it is amongst the most resistant to inactivation by disinfection. According to page 2-3 of US EPA’s “Guideline to Registrants: Process for Making Claims Against Emerging Viral Pathogens Not on EPA-Registered Disinfectant Labels”, being able to inactive FCV is equivalent to being able to inactive emerging coronaviruses, i.e. SARS-CoV-2.


GERMAGIC Thyme has been verified by third parties to be safe and effective. It is also a Hong Kong Eco Mark and Made in Hong Kong Mark product.



GERMAGIC is the first product in the GERMAGIC series. It is an antimicrobial coating which gives "contact-killing", "release-killing" and "anti-adhesion" abilities to HEPA filters. Unlike conventional antimicrobial technologies which solely rely on contact-killing, GERMAGIC releases Prolonged Oxidant Particles (POP) in a controlled-manner, allowing germicidal effect in the coating’s proximal area.

GERMAGIC is wide spectrum and is effective against bacteria, fungi and viruses. GERMAGIC is most notable to be effective against Avian Flu, Swine Flu and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus. GERMAGIC is also among the first HEPA filters to have undergone viral aerosol virucidal tests.



GERMAGIC G is a long-lasting antimicrobial gel which aims at malodour elimination through controlled-release of organic biocides, metabolic inhibitors and active disinfectants . It is highly adaptive and can be employed from industrial waste treatment to domestic household uses.

GERMAGIC G can also be tailor-made to suit different needs, such as to completely eliminate malodour-generating bacteria or to inhibit bacterial growth.

GERMAGIC G is currently under collaboration projects with the Hong Kong Government.
