Advanced Cleaning Spray to Clean Up in War On Household Bugs
A ground-breaking cleaning spray which kills germs for longer than market leaders and cuts the risk of infection is about to hit the UK high street.
Byotrol has teamed up with Robert McBride, the UK’s leading private label supplier to deliver an innovative range containing Byotrol to Tesco.
The first product available to the customer is an anti-bacterial multi surface cleaning spray. Byotrol is a revolutionary cleaning technology used by hospitals and food processing firms. The move will challenge the market leaders such as Dettol, Flash and Mr Muscle in a market worth £285 million a year.
The technology is also being snapped up by leading brands with a Boots own-brand hand foam, Tommee Tippee range of baby care products, and Morning Fresh products from PZ Cussons in Africa.
With the emergence of Byotrol, cleaning technologies of old are to be challenged as they struggle to defend their scientific credentials on longer lasting germ kill.
Byotrol also contains no alcohol or bleach so is gentler on skin and the environment.
After ten years of extensive research, top scientists have shown that traditional germ cleaning products, like bleach and alcohol, only protect against germs when wet (Residual Abrasion Testing 2010). Once they have dried, which takes only a few minutes, bacteria could be free to keep multiplying in their thousands.
Byotrol technology is different. It kills 99.9% of germs instantly and then continues to protect for 8 hours on the skin and 24 hours on surfaces, long after traditional cleaning products have stopped working.
What most people don’t realise is that traditional anti microbials stop working once dry. Byotrol is different. It forms a germ-killing layer when applied to the skin or a surface which stays there for hours exercising a powerful and deadly fight against microbes.Stephen Falder, the inventor of Byotrol
Research recently undertaken by Campden Research Institute showed the superiority of Tesco’s Byotrol Surface Sanitising products against the leading branded products.
Professor Stephen Yeates of Manchester University, who led a three year independent research study on Byotrol, said “our studies have led to a firm understanding of the unique structure of Byotrol Technology when applied to a range of surfaces and how to control these factors in a range of different formulations.
Stephen Falder added, “Byotrol creates an invisible microscopic barrier which is invisible to the naked eye, can’t be felt by human hands, but is absolutely deadly to germs. Unlike old technology products, Byotrol keeps on working long after it has dried. Byotrol delivers what no current technology can do: broad spectrum, long-lasting, antimicrobial control in a much safer and more caring way than was ever believed possible”.
And Byotrol is not only for use in the home. Importantly the technology can be tuned for different markets and applications. The effectiveness of Byotrol’s technology for use in hospitals was proved by the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) who measured Byotrol hand-foam against the NHS alcohol hand-gel (Spirigel) on their performance in killing and preventing dangerous viruses 24 hours after application.
Worryingly, the NHS “gold standard” alcohol hand-gel offered no residual effect whatsoever, while Byotrol continued to kill 99.9% of germs.
At Monroe hospital in the USA the use of Byotrol as part of the hospital’s disease control program has meant no hospital-acquired infection from super bugs (MRSA, C. difficile and VRE) in over 3 years.
In Iceland Byotrol saved a contaminated fish plant from closure when all other conventional disinfectants had failed to rectify a major plant outbreak.
