LITTLE RIVER, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2021--
PCT LTD (“PCTL” OTC Pink) PCTL is pleased to announce the first experimental evidence that its new solid form of HOCl is antimicrobial. An independent laboratory in Denver Colorado has tested the Company’s solid form of hypochlorous acid and revealed a 95 percent reduction in an E. coli colony count on a stainless-steel surface. The 95% reduction is an excellent entry test point and scientifically verifies proof of concept of the crystallization and rehydration process.

The Company will still have to analyze different crystal structures and compositions for the most efficient and effective methods, streamline the processes, further improve efficacy, conduct EPA efficacy studies, and commercialize the product, however, this first round of test results is very exciting and promising. “We feel like Edison must have felt when he finally found a filament that would last for a few hours before burning out and confirming that a lightbulb was indeed possible” says Stuart Emmons, Senior VP of R&D for PCT.
As far as the company is aware, this may be the first successful crystallization of hypochlorous acid and rehydration back into liquid hypochlorous acid while maintaining all the chemical properties of the original HOCl..
“We continue to work on disruptive technologies,” states Gary Grieco, CEO of PCT. “This breakthrough is indicative of game-changing products in healthcare and oil & gas technologies.”
