BioNeutral to Premier its EPA-Approved Ygiene® 206 Hospital-Grade Disinfectant at the Annual 2011 APIC Conference, While Community Health of South Florida Begins Product Review
NEWARK, N.J., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BioNeutral Group, Inc. (OTCBB: BONU), a specialty life science technology-based company, today announced that it has signed on to introduce its all new EPA-approved Ygiene® 206 hospital-grade disinfectant technology to the infection control professionals attending the 38th Annual APIC Conference (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology) (www.apic.org). Ygiene® is BioNeutral's latest weapon against hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), an ongoing and potential threat in the health care industry.
This year's APIC conference will be held on June 27th through June 29th, 2011 in Baltimore, MD. Recognized as the largest annual gathering of infection preventionists in the world, APIC brings together the leaders in clinical infection prevention in an interactive and educational forum. Infection preventionists are given an unprecedented opportunity to learn and engage with experts from across the global healthcare industry.
Further, BioNeutral announced that the Community Health Network of South Florida (CHI) http://www.chisouthfl.org/chi.htm will introduce Ygiene® to its Product Review Committee for evaluation and potential use among its network of facilities. CHI currently operates seven (7) state-of-the-art primary care centers and twenty-seven (27) school-based programs. Ms. Mary Ann Worts, BHSA, R.N., Director of Education and Infection Prevention and Control at CHI, stated,
"After careful review of the EPA approved data, Ygiene 206 appears to be cutting-edge technology in the battle against microorganisms/pathogens in the healthcare industry. I have had the opportunity to compare our current universal disinfectant with Ygiene 206 and found Ygiene to be far superior. The fact that the data reveals Ygiene has superior kill times, is a sporicidal, is non-corrosive, (crucial in the maintenance of instruments), and is a sterilant makes it superior to our current universal disinfectant." Ms. Worts went on to say "As an infection prevention and control practitioner I know first-hand that HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections) are continuing to reek havoc in our healthcare systems. It is imperative that we put an end to this preventable healthcare tragedy. I feel that this product compels me to introduce it to our Product Review Committee. Upon review and approval from our Review Committee, we intend to initiate a Purchase Order and use Ygiene 206 throughout our Organizations network."
"We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to formally introduce our Ygiene sterilant to such a wide spectrum of infection control professionals at the upcoming APIC global conference," stated Dr. Andrew Kielbania, Chief Scientist at BioNeutral Group. "To simultaneously gain the attention of a leading infection control field practitioner like Ms. Worts BHSA, R.N. of CHI clearly shows we are on the right path."
