Byotrol celebrates US approval for germ-kill product

Chester-based anti-microbial technology firm Byotrol has received US approval for its 24-hour germ-kill surface sanitizer product.

The formulation has been under development at Byotrol for over seven years and the Directors believe offers unique performance characteristics to US consumers and businesses.

The Byotrol product offers 24-hour surface protection against bacteria and is scientifically proven to kill  99.9% of bacteria for 24 hours. It has seven-day mold and mildew prevention and eliminates 99.9% of viruses.

Byotrol chief executive David Traynor said: “We are very excited to gain this registration. This project is one of three core R&D initiatives in the company, so its successful conclusion is a very significant moment for us.

“We are not aware of any product in the US market that can make competing 24-hour germ-kill claims, yet we are very confident that such claims are valued by both consumers and business users in markets that we estimate in retail alone total over US$1bn.”
