ATLANTA, Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Vystar® Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VYST), the creator of Vytex® Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), a patented, all-natural raw material that significantly reduces antigenic proteins found in natural rubber latex, announces that condom manufacturer, Richter Rubber Technology (RRT), Sdn. Bhd., Malaysia, will launch two new product lines: Vytex NRL condoms and ultrasound probe covers.
The line of Viva condoms and probe covers made with Vytex NRL is expected to be commercially available by the end of the year through Richter Rubber's established distribution channels and retail outlets. Richter Rubber will announce the launch and showcase the new line of products at MEDICA 2010, The 42nd World Forum for Medicine/ International Trade Fair, in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 17 to 20. MEDICA is the world's largest medical trade show, attracting over 138,000 attendees in 2009.
With over 85 years of manufacturing expertise, Richter Rubber markets its own "Viva" line of condoms throughout Europe and provides contract manufacturing for those manufacturers seeking preferred German quality combined with the competitive advantages of Malaysian manufacturing. The Vytex NRL probe covers, which are structurally identical to condoms, are designed to protect both the patient and the equipment when ultrasound procedures are being performed.
"Our condoms and probe covers made with Vytex NRL will provide our customers with the best protective material, natural rubber latex, enhanced by the performance benefits of Vytex NRL, with virtually undetectable levels of antigenic proteins." says Klaus Richter, President, Richter Rubber Technology. Mr. Klaus continues: "The condom and probe cover markets are highly competitive and require continual innovation to retain and grow share. We are confident that Vytex NRL will provide us with this competitive advantage."
William Doyle, Vystar's President and CEO, says "We are pleased to see the adoption of Vytex NRL and look forward to working with Richter Rubber on their new lines of condoms and ultrasound probe covers. Richter Rubber represents high quality and innovation from a long tenured condom manufacturer in the industry. Vytex NRL is well positioned for the condom market where natural rubber latex remains the consumer's material of choice. With Vytex NRL there is no trade off for fit, comfort, and sensitivity in condoms."
