NEWARK, N.J., July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. ("BioNeutral") (OTC Bulletin Board: BONU), a specialty chemical technology-based Life Science company announced today that at ATS Labs using the EPA required AOAC Sporicidal Test, the Hospital Grade of its Ygiene(TM) formula produced a 100% Total Kill of live spores in seven (7) minutes. This EPA required AOAC Sporicidal Test utilizing spore impregnated then knotted suture loops and porous cylinders is an extremely difficult test to pass, especially when starting with over one million Clostridium Sporogenes spores. The rapid elimination of these health threatening microorganisms, in the spore form, at health care facilities will reduce the incidents of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) and the associated loss of lives. From one million spores to zero in 7 minutes is up to 50 times faster than the competition. This means money and lives saved at every health care facility around the world.
Examples of commonly used antimicrobials in health care facilities including hospitals which cannot claim passing this EPA sporicide/sterilant test include CaviCide(R), Medica DC 10(TM), Wavicide 06 Plus(TM) and Myacide(R) GA 25. While these antimicrobials may eliminate easily eradicated bacteria and some viruses, they have no effect on spores and therefore cannot provide truly disinfected and sterile environments in the health care arena. Examples of antimicrobials which have passed the EPA required test include Steris(R) Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilant. However, special protective equipment and highly trained professionals are required to correctly apply this antimicrobial. In addition this product takes a full 90 minutes of direct contact to eliminate spores. In comparison while Steris(R) Spor-Klenz RTU may be easier to apply, it can take up to 5.5 hours to eliminate spores. These currently used commercial products have significant shortc
