Alternative medicine
Bio Nite, see there.

Materials science
A thread-like material grown from bacterial cell walls, which may be used in various biomineralisation processes—e.g., bone and dentin formation.
 
Medspeak
A proprietary combination medication used to temporarily manage the symptoms of common cold, flu, allergies, sinusitis and bronchitis, which contains a cough suppressant (dextromethorphan), a decongestant to relieve stuffy nose and ear congestion, acetaminophen to relieve pain and fever, and an antihistamine to relieve allergy symptoms (watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat, runny nose, and sneezing).

What's new: MicroClear BioNite, used for odor control and biological organic degradation, contains a proprietary blend of microorganisms, micro/macronutrients, alternate oxygen sources and surface tension suppres-sants/penetrants.
With the soft structure of the fibers as a matrix, minerals evolved into crystalline networks, using the bacterial cell wall as a "structural backbone." Mendelson calls this new mineralized material "bionite."
Whereas one iron bionite grew dark red and opaque, other versions brewed orange, translucent, cube-like crystals.
From simple macrofiber filaments come the bacterial threads, which provide natural templates for the mineralization process that generates bionites. Made from the bacteria's natural casing, bionites vaguely resemble fiberglass in appearance and texture.
Intrigued by the idea that bionites might have unique nonlinear optical properties -- such that they could prove useful in fiberoptics or microelectronics -- Mendelson brewed a web in potassium dihydrophosphate.
Shortly after I started I had the first Bionite Naturelens and all the advances in soft lenses since.
