Aphex BioCleanse Systems proprietary Hy-IQ® Water formula shown to effectively neutralize Candida auris.

Candida auris is an emerging fungus in the United States that can cause severe infections in the bloodstream, wounds, ears and potentially other parts of the body. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has stated that it has concerns about Candida auris because it is often resistant to drugs commonly used to treat Candida infections. Candida auris is difficult to identify properly without specific technology and has been shown to cause outbreaks in healthcare settings.

"Candida auris is a powerful new strain of Candida that is emerging across the U.S. The CDC is actively dedicating resources in trying to kill the drug-resistant strain and research how to reduce infections and prevent it from spreading," said Aphex President and CEO David J. Weaver. "We are proud of the effectiveness of our Hy-IQ® Water technology as it easily neutralizes this particularly strong strain. We believe that our technology can be used both in the agriculture and healthcare sectors to kill Candida auris and help be part of the solution to getting the fungus under control."

Aphex submitted the Hy-IQ® Water to a laboratory In-Vitro Time-Kill study that was designed to test the kill rate on four different strains of Candida auris after 3 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes. Results of the study reveal that Hy-IQ® Water was both non-toxic and effective in neutralizing the Candida auris strains.
