FDA Registered Technology, EPA Approved, Proven Safe and Effective in Any Environment Where People Live and Work
(Fountain Hills, Arizona. Mar 2, 2012) – Level4 Bio, the first safe power sanitizing service for killing surface and airborne pathogens in any environment, announced today the launch of the company and the general availability of its power sanitizing services.
The Level4 Bio solution is patented, registered with the FDA as a medical device, EPA approved and UL certified. The company was founded in Q4 2011 to help control and contain the impact and spread of infectious diseases including the latest strains of antibiotic resistant ‘superbugs.’
Superbugs such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) are strains of viruses and bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotic drugs. According to the CDC, such superbugs and other uncontrolled pathogens cost the United States billions of dollars every year, while causing hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of lives.
“Facilities and businesses have disinfected using bleach or alcohol-based spraying and wiping methods for more than fifty years,” commented Jeff Halmekangas, Vice President of Level4 Bio. “But bleach is harmful to the environment, and spraying and wiping techniques often cause cross-contamination and completely miss impossible-to-reach corners, nooks and vents where these ‘superbugs’ migrate and breed. And hand sanitizers, hot water and steam don’t kill harmful pathogens. Level4 Bio is far more effective in combating today’s pathogens, yet safe for people and the environment.”
Unlike traditional disinfecting methods, Level4 Bio uses a proprietary sanitizer containing a solution of 58.6% alcohol with a Four-Chain Quat and CO2 as a carrier. The CO2 distribution method atomizes the solution through power spraying technology, thoroughly disinfecting entire rooms in minutes, including areas beyond human reach. The solution dries in seconds and continues sanitizing after it has dried, leaving the area safe and ready for immediate use.
The technology is already in use in a number of hospitals and brand named food-processing plants across the country. It is proven safe on direct food surfaces and in human contact areas. The solution is lab-tested and proven to kill the vast majority of surface and airborne pathogens such as Salmonella, E-Coli, Norwalk (“Noro”) Virus, Listeria, Type 1 HIV, Avian Flu (H5N1), Influenza A (H1N1), Hepatitis B, Pseudomonas, Staph, Staph MRSA and others.
The company derived its name from the relative Biosafety Levels (“BSL 1 – 4”) that the CDC uses to define the bio-containment precautions required to isolate dangerous biological agents in an enclosed facility. The company offers a free onsite virus and bacteria swab test to help facilities and businesses assess the effectiveness of their current disinfecting methods.
