NEWARK, NJ--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) - BioNeutral Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BONU) (OTC Pink: BONU) announced that it has entered into a Sales and Distribution Agreement with Nyco Products Company (Nyco) in Countryside, Illinois, to distribute BioNeutral's YGIENE™ 206 Sterilant for advanced infection control. Nyco is a respected manufacturer and distributor of cleaners, disinfectants and sanitizers for janitorial, hospitality, long term care, MRO, and food service. YGIENE™ 206 adds a superior level of infection control to Nyco's product offering in these markets.
BioNeutral's patent-pending YGIENE™ 206 is EPA registered and engineered to be a cleaner, disinfectant, and hospital grade sporacide/sterilant on hard, non-porous surfaces. Its rapid surface sterilization makes it particularly effective for hospital, medical, terminal, and long term care environments. YGIENE™ 206 kills most organisms in 90 to 120 seconds and all microbial life within 20 minutes of contact time. It is ideally suited for sterilizing surgical tables and non-invasive equipment, and for disinfecting and sterilizing areas where patients with infectious diseases have been treated.
The partnership between Nyco and BioNeutral will be advantageous for customers of both companies. YGIENE™ 206 brings additional efficacy in infection control to Nyco's product offering, while Nyco provides exceptional support in sales and customer training, plus critical exposure to a national distribution network for BioNeutral. According to Ray Dunning, Sr. Vice President of Sales for BioNeutral, "Nyco's ability to offer us direct and immediate national access to long term health care markets and other specialty channels is extremely attractive. Without question, Nyco is the type of company with whom we want to be associated. Their commitment to innovation in cleaning and disinfecting along with their industry leadership and longevity make them an ideal distributor partner for BioNeutral."
"We're very excited to team up with BioNeutral to be able to offer our customers amazing solutions that have the potential to reduce healthcare associated infections (HAIs) in hospitals and other healthcare facilities," stated Bob Stahurski, President and CEO of Nyco Products Company. "A one-step non-chlorine bleach alternative sterilant that kills all mircoorganisms within 20 minutes could highly impact disinfection procedures and protocols for the healthcare market. One key reason we chose to partner with BioNeutral is because YGIENE™ 206 does not have the adverse patient reactions associated with chlorine and bleach based products."
