EPA approves TOMI’s Binary Ionization Technology
“As I have always been encouraged by our testing results, passing the difficult EPA protocols for a hospital-healthcare disinfectant and the registration by the EPA just verifies the power of TOMI’s BIT technology and disinfection solution,” TOMI CEO Dr. Halden Shane said. “This will now enable us to start filling our backlog of U.S. hospital orders.”
The BIT technology is used in TOMI’s SteraMist, which features a low concentration hydrogen peroxide as an active ingredient. The patented technology works to clean surfaces in a seven-minute contact time by passing the solution through an atmospheric cold plasma arc, creating a highly reactive oxygen species that kills and inactivates microbes.
“SteraMist is quickly establishing a reputation among decision-makers in a variety of applicable markets for its advantages in speed and efficacy over competing household and industrial cleaners,” Shane said.
