At a time when the medical community, CDC and FDA are closely following public health issues in these areas and considering revisions to applicable standards, we believe this is the game-changer the contact lens solution market has been anticipating.
Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) April 15, 2016
Asepticys, Inc., is pleased to announce the closing of its series A round of financing with Eshelman Ventures, LLC in Wilmington, NC. “Eshelman Ventures is excited at the tremendous opportunity that Asepticys brings to the market, with truly disruptive potential in the Contact Lens Solutions market as well as numerous other applications in the health and wellness verticals’” says Fred Eshelman.
Asepticys is developing a new generation of chemically unique medical disinfection solutions that are effective across a broad spectrum of microbial pathogens and clinically beneficial in numerous medical and consumer healthcare applications.
The medical disinfection solutions contain a unique combination of sterilizing agents, creating a multiple stressor environment that kills and deactivates pathogenic organisms across all microbial kingdoms. This approach is materially different than selective disinfection using either single or dual stressors (e.g., chlorhexidine derivatives), which is currently the standard of care in medical/clinical healthcare. The disinfection solutions are minimally reactogenic and gentle enough for numerous clinical applications including topical skin disinfection, ophthalmologic, surgical, urology catheter, venous catheter and needleless IV connectors, and trauma, wound and burn site maintenance.
The disinfection solutions have been specifically engineered for clinical use and could dramatically reduce hospital-acquired and consumer healthcare-related infection, as well as improve patient outcome via reduction of nosocomial infection in postsurgical/treatment maintenance while in hospital. According to Chad Roy, CEO, Asepticys, Inc., “At a time when the medical community, CDC and FDA are closely following public health issues in these areas and considering revisions to applicable standards, we believe this is the game-changer the contact lens solution market has been anticipating for over 30 years. This will disrupt and change the game not only in the contact lens solutions market, but in numerous applications around the world requiring sterilization.”

About Asepticys, Inc.
Asepticys is developing new generation chemically unique medical disinfection solutions that are effective across a broad spectrum of microbial pathogens and clinically beneficial in numerous medical and consumer healthcare applications.
We are currently focused on development of a multipurpose contact lens disinfection solution (MPDS) to be used regularly as a broad-spectrum sterilizer for daily use lens. Our solution is gentle enough to be used daily, requires minutes for complete sterilization of the lens, and is isotonically balanced for comfort. Also, because of unique combination of sterilants in our formulation, the risk of unwanted biofilm formation in cleaning/storage CL containers is essentially eliminated.
