NTRR: PurTeq Antimicrobial Coatings Could Help Prevent Future Flu Epidemics
TAMPA, Fla. -- February 14, 2013
Revolutionary technology owned by Neutra Corp.’s (OTCBB: NTRR) new partner,
Purlife, holds the potential to help eliminate disease epidemics such as the
flu outbreak that has hit North America hard in early 2013.
In the U.S., the flu epidemic has reached all 50 states, with 47 states
reporting “widespread” activity. Flu season slammed into the East Coast in
December, nearly a month ahead of schedule. According to the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), some areas of the country continue to
see increases in the number of new flu cases.
The major strain circulating the country this season, H3N2, appears to many to
be causing more severe illness, particularly in children and the elderly. So
far, 59 children have died as a result of the flu this season.
Through its option agreement with Purlife, NTRR is working on a solution to
future outbreaks. Purlife is the exclusive Canadian distributor of a
patent-pending, water-based solution known as PurTeq, which forms an
invisible, long-lasting coating that actively protects surfaces from the
buildup of bacteria, germs, molds and allergens. Without the use of harmful
chemicals, PurTeq also works rapidly and effectively to naturally decompose
odors such as smoke and pet smells.
PurTeq can be applied to almost any surface, opening up potentially lucrative
new possibilities to create “beyond clean” environments in hospitals,
airlines, schools and other public spaces.
“One of the ways that influenza spreads is through contaminated
surfaces—doorknobs, water fountains, bathroom surfaces, etc.,” said NTRR CEO
Cindy Morrissey. “PurTeq coatings can potentially eliminate this threat
unobtrusively and with no harmful chemicals or vaccines. NTRR is committed to
helping make this valuable weapon in the fight against disease commonplace in
vulnerable buildings and public places.”
