LITTLE RIVER, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PCT LTD (PCTL Pink) is pleased to announce that it has acquired rights to a novel liquid- and gaseous-delivery technology developed by Colorado-based Onza Corporation (OnzaCorp.com) The patent-pending technology will allow PCT (para-con.com) to convert its proprietary hypochlorous acid into a dry crystal, making it much simpler to handle and ship while still maintaining all its inherent qualities. On arrival to customers, it can be easily converted back to liquid form, which means that its normal 30-day active life can be extended until needed.
Gary Grieco, CEO and Chairman of PCT LTD stated, “Shipping costs and shelf life have been real limiting factors for the expansion of our fluid sales. Incorporating this technology to essentially eliminate fluid weight and greatly extend the shelf life is a game changer!”
This new cost-cutting delivery method for efficacious but unstable compounds like chlorine dioxide and hypochlorous acid opens the door to several new uses and applications for these compounds while greatly expanding current markets. Without this technology, these compounds must be produced onsite for immediate use. The half-life of chlorine dioxide, for example, is short; depending on conditions, it may be as short as a few minutes.
Onza is a technology company based in Colorado that has also applied its platform technology to successfully stabilize ozone gas into a solid, stable matrix. The company has been successful in crystalizing and shipping efficacious amounts of ozone for use weeks later. Bacterial testing using the crystalized compound conducted at a leading US medical university verified high-killing assays against E. Coli. A third-party testing was carried out at an ISO-17025 accredited laboratory has shown killing of many other common food-borne pathogens. All results were repeatable across organisms and production batches.
PCT LTD has negotiated exclusive rights for any application with respect to crystalized hypochlorous acid and exclusive medical applications for crystalized chlorine dioxide. Market study and cost analysis plans are being formulated for both compounds to be tested in multiple applications and scenarios.
