Kalamazoo, Michigan, October 16, 2017. Medizone International, Inc. (OTCQB:MZEI) or Medizone, manufacturer of the AsepticSure® Disinfection System, today announced that it is now allowed to place the “CE” Mark on the AsepticSure® System for distribution in the European Union (EU) and its member states.
Medizone’s CEO, David A. Dodd commented, “The receipt of CE Mark approval is a significant and important step in the commercial development of AsepticSure® in key European markets, which is an integral element in our international growth strategy for this game-changing product and technology. The CE Mark validates product adherence to the European Commission’s quality assurance and safety requirements, while providing an unprecedented solution to ensuring disinfection of all pathogens.”
The European market for disinfection technologies represents a multi-billion-dollar market for both healthcare and non-healthcare use that has consistently demonstrated rapid adoption of innovative technologies compared to other industrialized markets. Well established distribution channels within member countries present numerous opportunities to accelerate the growth of AsepticSure® in the market.
Further commenting on the significance of the availability of the AsepticSure® System for the European market, Michael E. Shannon, M.A., M.Sc., M.D., Medizone President & Director, Medical Affairs, noted, “Using conventional double cleaning practices or disinfection technology, it is simply not possible to achieve even a 3-log (99.9%) bactericidal and virucidal kill throughout an entire targeted room. AsepticSure® routinely achieves a minimum kill at least a thousand times greater than conventional cleaning methods across all pathogens on all surfaces within a contaminated space. We are delighted to see our advanced technology now available to the European market and look forward to the acceptance and adoption of AsepticSure® within both healthcare and non-healthcare environments throughout Europe.”
