Leading antimicrobial technology company Byotrol plc (AIM:BYOT) has today announced the launch of PROCESSUS®, a 360-degree instrument decontamination system, intended for the simple and effective reprocessing of instruments and specialist equipment, in both animal and human healthcare organisations.
PROCESSUS® is the third launch of Byotrol’s next-generation surface disinfectant technology, which was first introduced in November 2022, under Byotrol’s market-leading ANIGENE brand and subsequently launched under the CHEMGENE brand earlier this year.
Instrument decontamination refers to the process of making instruments and equipment safe for use. This can be achieved by removing, deactivating, or destroying contaminants, which can range from organic dirt and debris to harmful pathogens, like viruses, bacteria, and fungi. While the pathogenic threats to good patient care may differ slightly, the fundamental principles of effective instrument decontamination remain the same in both human and animal health environments.
The new PROCESSUS® brand debuts at the London Vet Show on the 16th of November, where Byotrol will be demonstrating the ease-of-use and flexibility of the PROCESSUS® product range to animal health professionals from its key commercial partners in veterinary, welfare, zoos and wildlife organisations.
The PROCESSUS® Instrument Decontamination System incorporates enzymatic cleaners, which are designed to remove organic matter prior to disinfection, using a triple enzyme formulation that protects the integrity of instruments. Post-cleaning, PROCESSUS® Instrument Disinfectant kills bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and viruses, including multi-drug resistant pathogens as well as denaturing DNA / RNA.
Central to all Byotrol products, the PROCESSUS® Instrument Decontamination System is supported by rigorous testing to the latest European efficacy test methodology, specifically those required for instrument submersion. The formulation is compatible with a wide range of equipment including thermos-sensitive and fine-lumened devices, nasal / fiber-optic scopes, diagnostic and orthopedic equipment, and surgical and endodontic instruments.
David Traynor, Interim CEO of Byotrol states:
“The launch of Byotrol’s new PROCESSUS® Instrument Decontamination System demonstrates another step forward in our plans to future-proof our portfolio for EU and UK BPR regulatory approvals. It is the third in a series of strategic portfolio updates, which strengthens our offering in both animal health and human health markets.”
