Linear Labs introduces electric motor that will fit inside a pocket

SanoTech 360 LLC, a provider of innovative, clinically-proven products and services, on Feb. 26 announced that it has finalized an agreement to purchase the assets of EMist Innovations.

This strategic move is a natural development for SanoTech, said SanoTech CEO George Robertson. Robertson was an executive at EMist for several years.

“This new addition to the SanoTech portfolio will allow us to capitalize on the tremendous opportunities in this market,” he said. “For example, in the education vertical alone, when students are absent due to illness, it not only means they’re missing essential learning opportunities, but a school district loses vital funding as well. Estimates show that schools lose approximately $40 per day in funding for every absent student. Using conservative projections, a 100,000-student school district would lose $200,000 a day to a flu outbreak that affects a mere 5% of the student population. The company’s flagship product, the EMist EM360, ensures that exposed surfaces can be frequently and comprehensively disinfected to reduce absenteeism due to illness.”

SanoTech 360 said will continue to provide infection prevention measures through its proprietary EM360 Electrostatic Disinfectant Application System. Josh Robertson, SanoTech president, said, “Job number one for health care cleaning professionals is infection prevention. This year alone it’s estimated that 1.7 million people will contract a totally preventable healthcare-associated infection (HAI) that will add nearly $20 billion to healthcare costs. The EM360 Electrostatic Disinfectant Application System is superior to traditional spray and wipe methods because the technology provides a no-touch application to environmental surfaces that can eliminate cross-contamination and help render surfaces hygienically clean, for a more effective and efficient outcome against HAIs. EMist lowers environmental bio burden, improves outcomes and decreases the bottom line.”
