The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology has given its Best New Product award to the hygiene product, Byotrol, which has proved very effective not just in the food hygiene industry, but also in hospitals and busines
Judges at the award ceremony praised Byotrol's technology and properties, which are reported to make it 30% more effective in combating hospital superbugs than the current NHS gold standard cleaning products. These results were gained from a trial at the Manchester Royal Infirmary in June 2009.
Byotrol uses water-based micro-polymer technology which forms an invisible layer on any surface, be it hands, workstations or hospital floors. Despite being safe to the touch (it contains no alcohol or bleach) it protects surfaces from bugs and bacteria for a minimum of 24 hours.
