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.)

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 ...

To the residents of Donora, Pa., a mill town in a crook of the Monongahela River, the daily haze from nearby zinc and steel plants was the price of keeping their families fed. But on October 27, 1948, the city awoke to an unusually sooty sky, even for Donora. The next day, the high school quarterbacks couldn't see their teammates well enough to com...

Sensory evaluation and chemical analysis of exhaled and dermally-emitted bioeffluents

Sensory evaluation and chemical analysis of exhaled and dermally-emitted bioeffluents
AbstractConditions in which exhaled and dermally-emitted bioeffluents could be sampled separately or together (whole-body emission) were created. Five lightly-dressed males exhaled the air through a mask to another, identical chamber or without a mask to the chamber in which they were sitting; the outdoor air supply rate was the same in both chambe...
