PURE Bioscience Announces DuraBan International as Distributor of SDC-Based Disinfectant

San Diego, CA | Posted on July 31st, 2008

DuraBan International Inc, a Minneapolis based chemical manufacturer specializing in earth-friendly antimicrobial technologies, intends to sell DuraClean through its existing distribution channels into multiple markets, including the building, consumer products, medical, service and industrial sectors.

Robert Dahl, founder of DuraBan, commented, "DuraBan's foundation has been built on providing earth-friendly antimicrobial solutions, of which SDC powered DuraClean is a perfect example. We expect it to provide an attractive, effective and efficient solution for our customers, as DuraBan stays true to its heritage of providing safe, effective and efficient solutions to our customers in the worldwide consumer, industrial and medical marketplace."

Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, stated, "SDC is a perfect complement for DuraBan's product line, which features safe and green antimicrobial barrier technologies. DuraClean will be marketed through DuraBan's established distribution channels. These channels include a wide variety of markets, some of which will be significant new entry points for our SDC-based disinfectant, such as the industrial contracted services area."

DuraBan has registered DuraClean with the US EPA as a sub-registrant of PURE Bioscience and is currently undergoing registration in all 50 states. In accordance with the agreement, each bottle of DuraClean features PURE's "Powered by SDC" logo. The contract also provides for increasing annual minimum purchases; other specific terms of the contract were not disclosed.

DuraClean disinfectant carries a 30 second kill time on standard indicator bacteria, a 24 hour residual kill on standard indicator bacteria, a 2 minute kill time on some resistant strains of bacteria, 10 minute kill time on fungi, 30 second kill time on HIV Type I, and 10 minute kill time on other pathogenic viruses. These claims distinguish the efficacy of DuraClean from many of the leading commercial and consumer products currently on the market, while maintaining lower toxicity ratings. Based on the EPA toxicity ratings from Category I (high toxicity) down to Category IV, DuraClean is a Category IV antimicrobial for which precautionary labeling statements are not required. This compares with Category II warning statements for most leading brands of disinfectant products.
