CENTERVILLE, Mass., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed a television joint venture agreement with Stardust International TV, of San Bernardino Ca., for the filming of a 60 second commercial, along with a 10 minute, "mini-infomercial." The commercial will run locally, regionally, and nationally, on a variety of television networks, including Comcast and Direct TV. The commercials will be run several hundred times to a potential audience of over 40 million households, while the mini-infomercial will run 4 times weekly to a variety of television stations.
"We think this is an outstanding opportunity to create brand awareness and sales for UV Flu," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technology. "Our FDA cleared device utilizes patented break thru technology that eliminates the issues of maintenance and efficacy present in almost all but the most costly filter systems. The Viratech UV-400 patented technology kills airborne bacteria, reduces odors, volatile organic compounds, and a host of other airborne contaminants. Indoor Air Pollution has been shown to have direct links to sleep disorders, respiratory issues including asthma and allergies, cancer, diabetes and even the risk of stroke."
"Finally having a national TV commercial, that can educate the American consumer about the health benefits of using our device and breathing contaminant-free air indoors, we think will dramatically improve the awareness of our brand, and the importance of the whole space as well," said Mr. Lennon. "The recently announced launch of the Serta Ultimate Sleep System, which combines our Viratech air purifier, with one of Serta's finest memory foam mattresses, coupled with their local advertising and our new 60 second national commercial, should have a significant impact on long-term sales."
