Andrea L. Goren, Executive Director of BioTech Medical LLC, stated, "We are significantly expanding our Specialty Chemical Group to capitalize on the opportunity to introduce these leading-edge disinfectants to several diverse markets. We have established a dedicated marketing program to promote SpectraSan24, its competitive benefits and the impact it will have on health outcomes in a variety of settings. Our marketing efforts focus on military and government agencies, school systems, the restoration and remediation industry and, of course, healthcare providers and institutions. We also intend to market SpectraSan24 through our international channels to similar markets worldwide.

"Existing business relationships with key industry leaders allowed us to quickly commence an on-board trial of Cruise Control with a large cruise line. Although the evaluation process can be lengthy, we expect that the product could be adopted into routine use before the start of the summer holiday season," Ms. Goren added.

Ms. Goren concluded, "BioTech Medical is committed to delivering innovative and environmentally responsible technologies to address significant public health threats. We are thrilled to be able to integrate SpectraSan24 into our business to benefit the global community."

Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, commented, "BioTech Medical has a long and lucrative track record of marketing healthcare products, especially disruptive technologies like SDC. Selling innovative products requires an investment in industry and customer education that then serves as a catalyst to drive the necessary understanding and adoption of a new technology. BioTech Medical's marketing team deploys a structured program to introduce and sell pioneering products, and we believe their strategy will result in near-term market penetration of SpectraSan24 in a variety of industries."

Krall continued, "We are also enthusiastic about BioTech Medical's rapid progress with Cruise Control; a product we continue to believe is particularly well suited to eliminate the threat of dangerous pathogens, including Norovirus, that have become serious problems for many cruise lines and other segments of the transportation and hospitality industries."

SpectraSan24

SpectraSan24, currently undergoing registration in all 50 states, carries a 30-second kill time on standard indicator bacteria, a 24-hour residual kill on standard indicator bacteria, a 2-minute kill time on some resistant strains of bacteria, 10-minute kill time on fungi, 30-second kill time on HIV Type I, and 10-minute kill time on other pathogenic viruses. These claims distinguish the efficacy of SpectraSan24 from many of the leading commercial and consumer products currently on the market, while maintaining lower toxicity ratings. Based on the EPA toxicity ratings from Category I (high toxicity) down to Category IV, SpectraSan24 is a Category IV antimicrobial for which precautionary labeling statements are not required. This compares with Category II warning statements for most leading brands of disinfectant products.

Cruise Control: 24-Hour Protection Against Norovirus

Based on PURE's patented silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) molecule, Cruise Control provides the first 24-hour residual protection against Norovirus. This highly concentrated product is designed to be mixed with water at the point of use to create a non-toxic hard surface antimicrobial. Cruise Control is being marketed to the cruise ship industry to help combat outbreaks of Norovirus, or "stomach flu." According to PURE, no EPA registered products have carried a residual kill claim for a virus, and, consequently, no EPA protocol exists to evaluate products for such a claim. Therefore, Cruise Control is first being marketed internationally to the cruise ship industry and is not currently available for sale in the United States.
