NEWARK, N.J., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. ("BioNeutral") (OTC Bulletin Board: BONU), a chemical technology-based Life Science company announced today that independent laboratory testing performed by ATS Labs shows that Aspergillus Niger mold spores are completely eliminated by the Company's Ygiene(TM) Hospital Grade antimicrobial in record time.
ATS Labs, using the EPA required Fungicidal Use Dilution test, showed that approximately 2.5 million Aspergillus Niger spores were totally eliminated within two (2) minutes. Aspergillus Niger is a type of black mold spore which is a prolific human heath threatening problem. The spore form of this black mold is particularly difficult to eliminate and total eradication is required in order to alleviate associated health threatening issues.
BioNeutral's Chief Science Officer, Dr. Andy Kielbania, PhD. stated, "These results are particularly important because they both validate our internal lab testing protocols and also confirm the speed, efficacy and power of our Ygiene(TM) antimicrobials. The sporicidal efficacy against Aspergillus Niger (Black Mold) is a key accomplishment for our company." He continued, "These independent lab test results represent a significant achievement. Based upon these results we believe our hospital grade Ygiene(TM) will easily eliminate any health threatening bacteria including very dangerous and difficult to kill antibiotic resistant forms including, Methicillan Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus often referred to as "MRSA", drug resistant Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and the very difficult to eradicate pan resistant Klebsiella Pneumoniae. Obviously the new strain of H1N1 virus (Swine Flu) will not present any problem for our formula to achieve a total Kill in record time."
In an article in Environmental Business International, Inc., The Chelsea Group, an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) consulting and market research firm, estimates the IAQ market caused by toxic mold to be $2 to $3 billion annually and Anthony Worthan, President and COO of Air Quality Sciences, an IAQ consulting firm in Atlanta, estimates the IAQ market to be growing at an annual rate of 25%.
"These positive independent laboratory results validate that our Hospital Grade formula is now well on its way to becoming the next generation technology in EPA approved disinfectants and sterilants for health care facilities around the world," stated Stephen J. Browand, President and CEO of BioNeutral Group, Inc. "I am confident that our rigorous independent testing program will continue to validate our advanced technology performance with a 100% Total Kill at record speed, while also remaining friendly to people and the environment."
