Earlier this month, PURE entered into an agreement with FTA Therapeutics, LLC for the development and licensing of silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC)-based products for clinical projects for FDA-regulated dermatology, wound care and medical biofilm control products. In April, PURE announced a partnership with Rockline Industries Inc, for North American distribution of PURE's ready-to-use "Powered by SDC" disinfectant product and for the development and North American distribution of wipes products, as well as new disinfectant, sanitizer and preservative products containing the company's patented antimicrobial, silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC).
"Powered by SDC(TM)"
SDC, PURE Bioscience's flagship technology, is the first new disinfectant active to be registered by the EPA in more than 30 years, and "Powered by SDC" disinfectants combine extraordinary broad spectrum antimicrobial action with a previously unattainable safety profile. SDC is a patented, aqueous non-toxic antimicrobial, which is an electrolytically generated source of stabilized ionic silver that can serve as the basis for a broad range of products in diverse markets. PURE also manufactures and sells varying strengths of SDC concentrate as an active ingredient, additive or preservative for inclusion in third-party products.
