TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. Joins Forces With Protak Scientific in Ground Breaking Partnership


Posted on: 30 Nov 17

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. (“TOMI”) (OTCQX:TOMZ), a global decontamination company that specializes in disinfection/decontamination sales and services, including SteraMist™, a hydrogen peroxide-based mist/fog registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) for use as a hospital-healthcare disinfectant, announced a new partnership with Protak Scientific Ltd. and its affiliated companies through a signed distributor agreement.

TOMI™ has started selling and distributing Protak’s line of Enzymatic Biological Indicator products. Protak is the globally exclusive appointed licensee of thermostable Adenylate Kinase technology, developed over fifteen years by Public Health England, an executive agency of the United Kingdom’s Department of Health and is the only manufacturer of Enzyme Indicators (EIs) for hydrogen peroxide decontamination performance validation in the world. Enzyme Indicator technology offers the pharmaceutical and life sciences market a 60 second quantitative validation process post decontamination treatment vs. the standard in today’s market which is a binary pass/fail with a 7 day wait prior to reusing the treated room or releasing the sterilized products. This time savings in validation and digitized system combined with TOMI's industry leading decontamination time makes TOMI a leader in the life sciences market space, as this one-two punch is unmatched by our competitors. The TOMI operations, logistics and service teams have already been trained on use of the EI’s. This validation option is now available for TOMI clients after SteraMist™ decontamination projects both in the U.S. and abroad. TOMI has the opportunity to offer its clients not simply the best technology on the market for decontaminating spaces but also now has the fastest validation process to prove it.

TOMI CEO, Dr. Halden Shane, expressed enthusiasm over this partnership. “There is much synergy with Protak as we are both leaders of innovative technology in our respective fields and we are thrilled to now be able to offer these EI’s as a validation resource. I believe this process could revolutionize how decontamination protocols are validated in the future.”

Protak’s CEO Phillip Godden states, “We are thrilled to partner with such a leading and dynamic company to distribute our transformative technology. TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. shares our likeminded forward thinking, technology driven ethos of bringing advanced solutions that increase safety and speed to the critical decontamination process. Our combined technologies ensure our customers have the very best decontamination and validation technology in the world today.”
