Byotrol® and Team Scotland go for gold

Byotrol are pleased to support Team Scotland in their quest to achieve gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games taking place on the Gold Coast of Australia in April.

Selected by Team Scotland for its superior efficacy, Byotrol’s INVIRTU™ alcohol-free hand foam sanitiser has been distributed to all athletes and supporting staff representing Team Scotland, to ensure the best possible protection against harmful microbes which could compromise performance at the Games.

Byotrol’s hand and surface sanitisers have long been the product of choice in high performance sport, having been used by rowing, cycling, sailing, football, wrestling and swimming teams, across the world.

INVIRTU alcohol-free hand foam sanitisers are used and trusted by the UK’s National Health Service to not only kill germs, but to improve hand hygiene compliance and protect skin condition for both staff and visitors.

Dr Niall Elliott, Team Scotland Chief Medical Officer commented “It is vital to keep our athletes at the peak of their fitness. Preventing the spread of germs by issuing individual personal bottles of INVIRTU hand sanitisers offers my team a layer of defence to help keep germs at bay, so they can concentrate on achieving their ultimate performance at the Games.”

Speaking on behalf of Byotrol, John Langlands, Scottish-based Chairman, commented, “We are thrilled to support Team Scotland in their efforts at the Commonwealth Games.  Having Team Scotland trust our products to protect their athletes for such a prestigious and important event, is a huge achievement for any supplier, particularly for an SME of our size. Byotrol’s continued commitment to product quality and efficacy proves to be a huge benefit to sports performance professionals around the world, of which we are very proud.”
