Date:2/16/2009

HONG KONG, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Today, Filligent, the Hong Kong- based biotech company, achieved CE certification for its revolutionary, anti- infective medical face mask, the BioMask. The BioMask is the first in a series of new products in Filligent's anti-microbial personal care range, BioFriend(TM), to be launched during 2009. By complying with the European Community's Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC, Filligent has met the stringent EU requirements for design, efficacy and safety of its innovative, germ-killing BioMask.

Due to its anti-microbial properties, the BioMask is a powerful weapon in the fight to contain and stop the spread of infectious respiratory diseases such as SARS and bird flu. During outbreaks of infectious disease, the ability to halt transmission, during early stages, could be critical in preventing the development of a full-blown pandemic.

The BioMask is based on an "intelligent filtration" technology and is fabricated from a scientifically designed and tested multilayer material which has in its internal structure a unique active layer which has highly targeted anti-microbial properties. This active layer aggressively detects, traps, and then rapidly kills pathogens, within minutes of contact.

This patented BioFriend(TM) textile layer CAPTURES pathogens by mimicking the sites on human cells to which they normally attach, and DESTROYS them by disrupting their surfaces (viruses) and cell walls (bacteria). Many viruses, including influenza viruses, are known to bind to a terminal sialic acid residue on the surface of the human cell membrane. The binding agent in the BioFriend(TM) textile mimics the binding action of sialic acid on influenza viruses.
