BioNeutral Announces Results of "APIC" Conference and Its Launch of Ygiene 206 Sterilant
NEWARK, N.J., July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. (OTCBB: BONU) today announced the results of its attendance at the international conference & exhibit for the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC). The conference took place from June 27th through the 29th at the convention center in Baltimore, Maryland. Over 2,200 infection control professionals attended it, from as far away as the United Arab Emirates, representing nearly 1,900 health care institutions along with 207 exhibitors.
It was the first time the company had a formal opportunity to present its Ygiene technology to hundreds of health care institutions and allow highly specialized conference participants to view our products. "I'm pleased to report that our Ygiene 206 Sterilant formulation was very unique to the APIC exhibit hall and was received extremely well by those professionals I presented it to," stated Dr Andy Kielbania, Chief Scientific Officer of BioNeutral. He went on to say, "I did not see any other product at this show new or old, with the overall superior performance characteristics which matched Ygiene 206 Sterilant."
"The company's expectations were quite modest as first time APIC exhibitors and having a small presentation booth. Nevertheless, in 3 days with a total of 10.5 hours of open exhibit time, 257 infection control professionals visited our booth and asked to be in our database for follow up, with 64 of them requesting an initial trial at their facility. This is six times the expected result given the floor space allocated to us, according to those who run the conference for APIC." It was very busy, averaging just under 25 attendees per hour. Overall, I would categorize our launch event as extremely encouraging," stated Stephen J. Browand, Chairman and CEO of BioNeutral Group, Inc.
The company also premiered its all new more informative website now showcased at www.bioneutral.com, that was timed to launch with the APIC conference opening. The entire content was designed to bring the various multifaceted technologies together under a new unified corporate identity.
