Stocks in this article: PURE

PURE Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ: PURE ), creator of the patented silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, today announced that research conducted by scientists at the University of Arkansas demonstrates the superior efficacy of PURE Hard Surface over quaternary ammonia for cleaning and decontaminating food contact surfaces.

The research was conducted at the University of Arkansas by the Center for Food Safety and Department of Food Science in conjunction with the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering.

The research is scheduled for publication in the May 2012 issue of the Journal of Applied Microbiology. The abstract of the accepted article can be accessed using the following link, where a PDF of the complete article can also be purchased: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2672.2012.05318.x/abstract.

Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, stated, “This testing by the University of Arkansas further validates the powerful efficacy and practicality of our SDC-based disinfectant and food contact surface sanitizer in a simulated use setting when compared with traditional toxic chemicals. We expect that this and future studies will provide significant support for our marketing programs in the food service, hospitality and food processing market sectors.”

About SDC-based PURE Hard Surface

US EPA registered PURE Hard Surface disinfectant and food contact surface sanitizer provides an unparalleled combination of high efficacy and low toxicity with 30-second bacterial and viral kill times and 24-hour residual protection. SDC-based PURE Hard Surface completely kills resistant pathogens like MRSA and Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (NDM-1) and also effectively eliminates dangerous fungi and viruses including HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Norovirus, Influenza A, Avian Influenza and H1N1 as well as hazardous food pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter. PURE Hard Surface delivers powerful broad-spectrum efficacy while remaining classified as least-toxic (Category IV) by the US EPA, and its active ingredient, SDC, has been determined Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use as a biocide on food processing equipment, machinery and utensils.
