About Medizone International, Inc.
Founded initially in 1986 to develop treatments for lipid-enveloped viruses, Medizone International, Inc. shifted focus in 2007 in response to the increased prevalence and awareness of hospital acquired infections. The Company developed the AsepticSure system to combine anti-oxidant gases (O3 and H202) to produce unique free radicals (H2O3 known as trioxidane) with higher anti-oxidant potential than ozone or hydrogen peroxide alone. After securing broad IP protection for the use of trioxidane for both healthcare facility disinfecting systems and bioterrorism applications, the Company released its AsepticSure system for use in Canada and several other global markets. The Company is preparing to expand in the US market. AsepticSure received EPA approval in November of 2016 and the Company is currently working with the FDA to finalize the regulatory status of AsepticSure. Learn more at http://www.medizoneint.com
