PITTSBURGH, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOSAFE, Inc. has announced that it has registered with the USEPA two new water-based antimicrobial solutions and entered into a commercialization agreement with Kentucky-based Union Springs Pharmaceuticals to market products containing BIOSAFE's patented and exclusive antimicrobial polymer, HM4100. The unique and effective antimicrobial technology safely protects surfaces from harmful and degrading effects of bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi. HM4100 is approved for uses in a variety of substrates, including textiles, plastics, medical goods, construction and building products, and consumer products. This agreement gives Pittsburgh-based BIOSAFE greater access to the national and international marketplace, beginning with its first large order from Union Springs on December 6, 2010.
Union Springs offers MyClyns® (antimicrobial germ spray) and will offer products containing HM4100 under the MyClyns Antimicrobial Surface Treatments banner. HM4100 is a residual long-term antimicrobial that has proven its effectiveness against the proliferation of such bacteria as MRSA, VREF and Staph, along with mold, mildew and some influenza A viruses that include bird flu (H5N1) and swine flue (H1N1).
Part of the significance of the BIOSAFE solution is that it can be applied to both hard and porous surfaces, from tables, desks and counters, to bedding, clothing and carpeting.
"This agreement with Union Springs Pharmaceuticals and the launch of MyClyns products featuring our patented HM4100 antimicrobial is more than just a business venture," said Max Fedor, CEO of BIOSAFE. "The health protection benefits for millions of people around the world are potentially very significant. Thanks to this strategic alliance with Union Springs Pharmaceuticals, we will be able to build a strong market presence around our unique technology."
