    The environmentally friendly bandage will use nanobubbles to attack the protective surface of fungi and bacteria.
    The nanobubbles, which function similar to oil droplets, will operate in conjunction with a particular blend of polysaccharides, damaging the microbes' cell walls and causing them to dehydrate and die.
    The polysaccharides are less toxic and less expensive than the antibiotics and silver used in current germ fighting bandages.
