How Does BioProtect Protection Work?

The active ingredient in BioProtect polymerizes to all surfaces and is both colorless and odorless.

Think of BioProtect as a layer of electrically charged swords.  When a microorganism comes in contact with the treated surface, the quaternary amine sword punctures the cell membrane and the remnants are then electrocuted.

Since nothing is transferred to the now dead cell, the antimicrobial does not lose it’s strength and the sword is now ready for the next cell to contact it.  (NOTE: Normal cleaning of the treated surfaces is necessary in order for the BioProtect   antimicrobials to continue their effectiveness.  Dirt buildup,  paint, dead microbes, etc. will cover the treatment prohibiting it from killing microorganisms.)

Study finds MCR-1 is widespread in Chinese ecosystem
New research out of China indicates that the colistin-resistance gene MCR-1 is prevalent in the country's water supply, animals, food, and human population.In a study yesterday in Eurosurveillance, a research team from Hong Kong Polytechnic University reports that MCR-1-harboring bacteria, mainly Escherichia coli, were detected in 71% of water samp...

Global health policy and neglected tropical diseases: Then, now, and in the years to come
In the year 2000, the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were adopted by the United Nations and its member states [1]. Even though health aspects that mostly affect the poor were explicitly included in the MDGs (goals 4, 5, and 6), many stakeholders felt that important conditions were not adequately represented or were unjustly omitted [1, 2...

DON’T BLAME PIGS FOR SWINE FLU—SPECIES HOPPING IS HOW VIRUSES EVOLVE

WHEN NEW SPECIES evolve, where do their viruses come from? As little more than free-ranging bundles of genetic material, viruses desperately need to hijack their hosts' cellular machinery and resources to replicate, over and over again. Without its host, a virus is nothing.Because of that dependence, some viruses have stuck with their hosts through...

How indoor air pollution is leading to stunted growth in India’s children India has 61 million stunted children and there is evidence that exposure to indoor air pollution from burning solid fuels increases the probability of stunting among children

How indoor air pollution is leading to stunted growth in India’s children
India has 61 million stunted children and there is evidence that exposure to indoor air pollution from burning solid fuels increases the probability of stunting among children
​Worldwide, as many as 4.3 million people die each year due to indoor air pollution. The conversation on air quality, however, has been focused largely on outdoor air pollution. As researchers at Evidence for Policy Design, we conducted an analysis of 2005-2006 National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3) data and found strong evidence that the exposure ...
