NEWARK, N.J., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNeutral announced today the results of tests utilizing its Ygiene(TM) formulation to kill anthrax spores on contact. This chemical technology is designed to be used by the military and first responders in conjunction with any suspected anthrax exposure. "The Ygiene(TM) formulation killed all anthrax spores exposed to the formulation in as little as 15 seconds," said Dr. Philip Tierno, the Principal Investigator on the project. Dr. Tierno is the Director of Clinical Microbiology and Diagnostic Immunology at Tisch Hospital, New York University Medical Center. "This is an extraordinary result given the heartiness and particular difficulty in eradicating anthrax spores. The test compared results with a 10% solution of chlorine bleach which required almost 100 times the contact time to achieve the same test result. I expect this chemical technology will be used in applications which will prove beneficial, even life-saving, in hospital and other healthcare settings."
Dr. Andy Kielbania, Chief Scientist for BioNeutral, said, "We are currently continuing our corrosive and stability testing. As demonstrated by these exceptional results our combinational technology platform allows us to develop formulations that can deliver active ingredients with exceptional speed and pinpoint efficacy."
Mr. Raj Pamani, a member of the Board of Directors, said, "We look forward to introducing this technology to the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and the City and State's Task Force on Bioterrorism."
About BioNeutral Laboratories Corporation
BioNeutral was organized in 2003 to commercialize a novel combinational chemistry-based technology that can neutralize harmful environmental contaminants, toxins and dangerous micro-organisms including bacteria, viruses and spores. The formulations are "Green" and include natural and common ingredients which are found in baby products and the foods we eat. These widely used compounds are combined in unique ways to create enhanced results.
BioNeutral's proprietary platform technology has been proven effective in surface, water and airborne applications. The products include BioNeutralizers and ChemoNeutralizers. BioNeutralizers disinfect, decontaminate and sterilize. BioNeutral believes it has the broadest-based, fastest-acting, most effective and safest antimicrobial known. This class of products has important applications for consumers, healthcare and the military. ChemoNeutralizers irreversible bind chemical contaminant and toxin molecules and render them harmless. Product applications include industrial pollution and protection against chemical weapons of mass destruction.
