Nanotech investors curb their enthusiasm

Abstract:
Itís one of the world's most powerful disinfectants, but so non-toxic, you can drink it. It's changing the way consumers clean, but because of its unique way of destroying germs, bacteria and disease, it may usher in a new era in health care.

EnviroSystems is fighting fire with fire. By manipulating the individual molecules of a standard industrial disinfectant, the company has created an anti-bacterial cleanser so powerful, so popular and so safe, that it can't mix the stuff fast enough.

The companyís disinfectant, called EcoTru, uses something called "nano-emulsive particles" that are so small, they can wiggle their way through the walls of a bacteria cell and destroy it from within. Itís a kind of nanotech smart bomb -- smart, because the particles target tiny bacteria and germs, while leaving larger human or animal cells alone.
