TORONTO, CANADA, Nov. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire - BioLife Sciences (OTCPK: BLFE) has entered into an agreement with FLYGTA to become the exclusive supplier of electrostatic disinfection and cleaning services for their commercial airplane fleet using an innovative antimicrobial treatment system. BioLife Sciences will conduct cleaning and disinfecting services for FLYGTA's aircraft and private lounges, operating out of district airports throughout Ontario, including Toronto's Billy Bishop Airport.
The sanitization technology helps to control bacterial, viral and fungal populations on high-touch, high-traffic surfaces by reducing the number of germs on the treated areas. Electrostatic spray disinfection & sanitization systems turn disinfectant liquids into fine mist aerosols, subsequently applying a charge to each droplet so that they are attracted to surfaces through electrostatic forces greater than gravity, enabling the disinfectant to wrap around surfaces and cover difficult to reach areas.
The treatment system has the ability to be used with almost any type of water-based disinfectant which, in this case, will be a natural essential oil and water-based sanitization solution that has demonstrated effectiveness against human coronavirus strain 229E and SARS-CoV-2. The disinfectant is a non-toxic, biodegradable, odorless and colorless environmentally friendly technology providing broad-spectrum (viral, bacterial & fungal) surface disinfection.
The water-based electrostatic treatment is also ideal for metal surfaces, as it will not accelerate metal corrosion, unlike peroxide, citric acid, bleach and other commonly used harsher disinfecting chemicals.
"We are excited to play a role in helping Canadians and the travel industry get back to normal air travel without having to worry about the cleanliness of the aircraft itself. We believe this technology will set the standard," Mr. De Four, CEO of BioLife Sciences stated.
"FLYGTA is uniquely positioned in the industry, our agreement with BioLife allows us to use our Aircraft Maintenance Organization as approved by Transport Canada to add aviation regulatory certifications if necessary. We are ready for the new wave of travel with this added safety measure. Antimicrobial protection is the smartest way forward," Chris Nowrouzi, CEO of FLYGTA stated.
