EPA-Registered, SpectraSan 24 Kills Influenza A Viruses, MRSA, Staph and a Host of other Micro-Organisms on Hard Surfaces for Infection Control

We are committed to helping adults and children across the country experience a happy and healthy summer.

In mid-June, almost one third of the weekly campers at YMCA Camp High Harbour in Clayton, Georgia left early because of signs of H1N1 Swine flu-like symptoms or parental fears. A representative of BioTech Medical LLC heard about the summer camp's situation and was confident that his company's newly launched product - SpectraSan 24 - would help curtail the spread of illness.

On June 20, ten donated cases of SpectraSan 24 arrived and the camp's maintenance staff was met by the BioTech Medical representative who explained in detail the differences between "cleaning and disinfecting."

The next day, the camp opened its doors to the new, weekly session of campers. The SpectraSan 24 daily disinfectant became one major component of several changes instituted at the camp to help keep the number of sick campers to a minimum. The four-fold response included environmental cleaning, respiratory and hand hygiene, active camper screening and pro-active communication.

Shortly thereafter, BioTech Medical received the following email:

"We are halfway through the week, and no one has come to the infirmary with flu-like symptoms. In fact, we would like to purchase additional product for continuous disinfecting throughout the summer. We have sprayed the cabins, boats, life jackets, serving counters, buses and all meeting areas such as the dining hall, amphitheater and chapel. I believe this may have been a blessing. Your product has helped us with the Type A Influenza and with other viruses that commonly attack us every year such as strep throat, pink eye, etc. This has been a life-changer. Please feel free to share my name for any other camp directors inquiring about the product." -- Ken O'Kelley, Executive Director

"The EPA believes, based on available scientific information, that the currently registered Influenza A virus products will be effective against the 2009 H1N1 Flu Strain on hard, non-porous surfaces," stated Andrea Goren, executive director of North Canton, Ohio-based BioTech Medical. "However, only SpectraSan 24 has 24-hour residual efficacy and kills germs 20 times faster than traditional disinfectants on the market. It has the lowest toxicity rating assigned by the EPA, is non-corrosive, non-flammable, and is recommended for use in child care environments. It is EPA-registered and the first patented disinfectant in over 30 years."

"BioTech Medical is offering up to a 35% savings on any purchases of SpectraSan 24 through August 31, 2009," Goren added. "We are committed to helping adults and children across the country experience a happy and healthy summer."
