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.)

* According to the ISSA 'Value of Clean' white paper (2012): proper hygiene programs can:

  • Reduce the probability of infection for common cold and influenza by approximately 80 percent
  • Can reduce the number of surfaces contaminated with viruses by 62 percent
  • CONSEQUENTLY...has been shown to reduce absenteeism by as much as 46 percent

The Healthier Environmental Living Program (HELP) 

What we know!  The United States Environmental Protection Agency has listed indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental threats facing public health.  We know from the news that our aging water infrastructure cannot be depended on to deliver clean safe water.  In 2104 the World Health Organization, White House and the European Union went public with the growing threat of microbial resistance to antibiotics.  With antibiotics becoming ineffective, it will again be possible to die from simple bacterial infections that were treatable last year.   With people spending 90% of their time indoors,  the need to engineer residential spaces to limit the spread of pathogens becomes more and more important.  We do this with clean surfaces, clean hands, clean air and clean water.

  • BioProtect for surfaces.  BioProtect when applied to a surface provides a long term bio-static layer of protections

  • Sanders Filters are used in the home on the HVAC system and can be configured for point of use systems.  Filter provide submicron filtration from .1 micron and up

  • Pure Hand hand sanitizer provides a safe none flammable that doesn't dry out the skin

  • Point of Use water filters for the showers and sinks filtering 99.99999% bacteria reduction

  • BioProtect for laundry.  We can make the patients clothing, sheets and blankets antimicrobial.  All of which can be done in the home laundr

   
 

 

Compromised immune systems / Oncology  (HELP)

The Oncology Healthier Living Program is focused on reducing secondary infection.  The single major cause of death during cancer treatments was infection (36%), which was also a contributory factor in an additional 68% of the cases.  (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1056415) Making the home persistently cleaner is important for the family and the patient.

Pregnancy  (HELP) 

It is hare to believe that in this day and age, up to 25% of women will lose a baby during pregnancy or birth.  The health of the mother impacts the baby.  (https://www.statista.com/topics/1850/pregnancy/) and (https://www.tommys.org/our-organisation/why-we-exist/pregnancy-statistics) The Healthier Environmental Living Program helps to reduce environmental risk.  Pregnant women have compromised immune systems.  It is prudent to take precautions.
