Abstract
Lynntech, Inc. proposes the use of a novel oxidant as a powdered concentrate, that when dissolved in water, yields a potent sporicidal solution capable of reducing spores by greater than 6-logs on a variety of surfaces. The sporicidal formulation will be tested on concrete, wood, galvanized metal, glass, plastic and painted wallboard to determine if the formulation will reduce spores but not harm the contacted surfaces. The formulation will include gelling agents to increase the formulation viscosity to better adherence to walls and ceilings for longer contact times. The formulation will also contain additives to increase efficacy of spore coat penetration and long term shelf life. Potential markets include first responders, military, medical and biomedical industry, and agriculture and industrial sectors for clean up and first response remediation. Alternative end user interest might include clandestine drug synthesis laboratory clean-up companies.
