Allied Minds Launches Novel Disinfectant/Disinfestant Technology Start-up With UC Davis
Date:6/30/2008

Investment Firm, Allied Minds, Establishes New Company to Commercialize

Novel Technology from UC Davis

BOSTON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Allied Minds, a pre-seed investment firm specializing in early stage university business ventures, has established RF Biocidics, Inc., to develop and commercialize a novel disinfectant and disinfestant technology invented at UC Davis.

The newly formed RF Biocidics, Inc. is developing a novel "cleantech" approach using radio frequency (RF) heating to eliminate pathogens and insects without the use of dangerous chemicals or radiation. Traditional efforts to disinfect and disinfest food and agricultural products, have primarily utilized chemical, heat, or radiation inputs with often undesirable results. These methods have inherent problems: 1) toxins are introduced into the food chain and the environment; 2) permanent changes occur in the sensory and nutritional quality of most produce; and 3) radiation drives high the cost of handling and holds a negative consumer perception.

RF heating resolves these issues by delivering lethal energy to insects and microbes without disturbing or damaging the host material or leaving behind any molecules. In general, RF heating eliminates surface heating, reducing thermal loads and allowing a food's quality and nutritional attributes to be maintained. RFB technology is being developed by Professor Manuel Lagunas-Solar of UC Davis.

"We look forward to exploring the many potential applications this technology will encompass. We see benefits in food safety, agriculture, medical sterilization, and as an anti-bioterrorism measure, among others," said Allied Minds COO Marc Eichenberger.

The initial funding for RF Biocidics is being provided by Allied Minds. To learn more about RF Biocidics, please visit http://www.rfbiocidics.com .
