Emmy Award-Winning Dr. Bob Arnot Embraces Breakthrough Disinfectant

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, April 20 BioTech Medical, LLC announced today that it has engaged celebrity physician Dr. Bob Arnot to act as Chief Medical Educator for its breakthrough disinfectant, SpectraSan 24. Based on a patented silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) molecule, SpectraSan 24 can be used to kill dangerous germs on hard surfaces in a wide variety of settings including hospitals, medical and dental offices, child care facilities, cruise ships, sports facilities, homes and more.

When Dr. Arnot's son's school underwent a serious norovirus outbreak, he turned to BioTech Medical for help. Biotech Medical flew in a team of disinfection specialists to disinfect the school with SpectraSan 24. The outbreak vanished. Dr. Arnot has been a loyal fan ever since.

Dr. Bob Arnot has been a medical correspondent for CBS, NBC, MSNBC and, more recently, hosted the Dr. Danger TV series. He is also an international humanitarian with a hunger for knowledge and a desire to introduce audiences to important issues and exotic locations around the world. From the conflict in Darfur to the crises in the Middle East, Dr. Arnot has seen it all, and guides his audiences through a firsthand look at major international conflicts. However, sanitation and germ control has remained a paramount issue for Dr. Arnot throughout his travels - and one that makes his enthusiasm for SpectraSan 24 all the more genuine.

"We couldn't be more excited to have Dr. Arnot on-board to help us educate the public regarding this revolutionary product and how it can help mitigate Swine Flu (H1N1), Norovirus, MRSA, SARS, HIV and other dangerous pathogen outbreaks," said Andrea Goren, Executive Director of BioTech Medical.

Disinfectants are vital in fighting disease and illness, but virtually all are extremely toxic. The "holy grail" of disinfection has been to find an agent that is non-toxic and yet has high residual effectiveness in order to retain resistance to re-infection after cleaning. "SpectraSan 24 represents a breakthrough in germ defense, and I am excited to help spread the word about SpectraSan 24," said Dr. Arnot.

Unlike traditional alcohol or bleach-based surface disinfectants, SpectraSan 24 requires no hazard or warning statements, and carries bacterial kill times as quick as 30 seconds compared to up to 10 minutes for competing products. These benefits are due to SpectraSan 24's SDC technology, the first new disinfectant technology to be registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in more than 30 years. SDC provides powerful protection and continues to kill bacteria for up to 24 hours after usage, yet it holds an EPA Category IV toxicity rating, the lowest classification available. In fact, if tap water carried an EPA toxicity rating, it would also be IV!

"BioTech Medical wanted more than just an 'expert' to explain the advantages of SpectraSan 24. We wanted someone who is engaging, educated and passionate about this technology and its benefits. Dr. Bob Arnot is that professional -- and more. He is a perfect fit for what we are doing," said Andrea Goren.
