BioNeutral's Ygiene(TM) Hospital Grade Antimicrobial Demonstrates a 99.9997% Kill Rate Against Clostridium Difficile Spores (C.diff) in Independent Lab Pre-testing Phase
Date:7/9/2009

NEWARK, N.J., July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. ("BioNeutral") (OTC Bulletin Board: BONU), a chemical technology-based Life Science company announced today that at ATS Labs, using a Quantitative Disk Carrier test starting with 5.5 million Clostridium Difficile (C.diff) spores, BioNeutral's Ygiene(TM) Hospital Grade antimicrobial delivered an amazing 99.9997% kill.

Clostridium Difficile, an extremely dangerous and difficult to eradicate spore, is associated with hospital acquired infections which results in diverted health care providers' efforts, millions of dollars in extra health care expenses, and tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths annually in the United States alone. The best high powered antimicrobial currently used in hospitals as a disinfectant is based upon quaternary ammonium compounds which are ineffective at eradicating Clostridium Difficile spores, resulting in a serious unmet need in the health care arena.

According to Wyeth, a global leader in pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare products, in the United States, hospital-acquired infections alone afflict nearly 2 million patients and kill approximately 90,000 people annually, more than diabetes or influenza/pneumonia.

About 70% of these hospital-acquired infections are resistant to at least one drug and nosocomial infections, which costs U.S. society between $4 billion and $5 billion annually.

Dr. Andrew Kielbania, Chief Scientist at BioNeutral, stated, "At BioNeutral we have raised the bar in terms of developing superior antimicrobial formulations. Clostridium Difficile spores represents a significant health threat and also is one of the most difficult to eradicate spores in the heath care area. These impressive independent lab pre-testing results not only validate our internal results but also give us great confidence that our ongoing EPA registration of our Ygiene(TM) Hospital Grade Antimicrobial will be successful with an ultimate 100% total kill."

Stephen J. Browand, BioNeutral Group Inc. CEO stated, "We are very encouraged by these first pre-testing results of our Hospital Grade formulation that will undoubtedly save many lives and protect countless others from being exposed to a hospital acquired infection. To have a non-toxic, non-corrosive disinfectant that can kill the very resilient C.diff spore is truly an amazing scientific breakthrough. The fact that it is also environmentally friendly makes it a groundbreaking event."

To complement its internal Ygiene(TM) research and development efforts, BioNeutral frequently uses highly recognized independent laboratories such as ATS Labs of Eagan, MN. In developing superior Ygiene(TM) antimicrobial formulations BioNeutral also uses testing protocols which place an extra and extreme demand on the antimicrobial formulation.

About ATS Labs: ATS Labs is a leading internationally recognized lab used by the developers and users of antimicrobial products. They provide comprehensive antimicrobial service and their superior client service and scientific data have earned them a distinguished record of acceptance with regulatory agencies in the United States, Canada and worldwide.
