TOMI Announces Update on Company Operations
TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. (“TOMI”) (OTCBB:TOMZ), a global bacteria decontamination and infectious disease control company, announced that it had recently exhibited the SteraMist activated hydrogen peroxide technology at several industry conferences.
In May 2012, TOMI exhibited at the Remediation Industry Association’s national meeting in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to present how TOMI's SteraMist air and surface treatment equipment offers the healthcare industry a low cost and effective sterilant that allows professional remediators to resolve contaminated property issues and return the property back to its owner in a useful condition. Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “TOMI has received orders and shipped products to remediators as a result of this exhibition.”
In June 2012, TOMI exhibited the SteraMist system at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc. (“APIC”) 39th Annual Educational Conference & International Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. This year’s theme was “Infection Prevention: Improving Outcomes, Saving Lives.” A focus at APIC’s conference was how to eliminate the incidence of Healthcare Associated Infections. During their presentations, several national healthcare authorities advocated the use of Activated Hydrogen Peroxide. Dr. Shane stated, “SteraMist’s activated hydrogen peroxide aerosol portable technology gives a six-log kill, leaves no residue, and converts to only water and oxygen. Developed by a major U.S. Defense contractor, it has historically been used for killing anthrax spores and is currently being used by the military and civil defense in various countries. It is now available through TOMI to the healthcare industry.” Dr. Shane also stated that, “It was gratifying to see a high level of interest in SteraMist amongst the attendees at the conference.”
In September 2012, TOMI participated as a presenting company at the American Society for Healthcare Risk Management (“ASHRM”) Annual Conference in National Harbor, Maryland at which the society officially launched “Getting to Zero™: Eliminating Preventable Serious Safety Events,” a multi-faceted patient safety and healthcare risk management initiative that aims at reducing the incidence of preventable serious safety events in healthcare organizations.
Dr. Shane reported that Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, upon evaluation of both the initial results from using the SteraMist system in its facility and the protocol and training programs developed by TOMI, has expanded its SteraMist program and ordered additional equipment from TOMI. That brings the use of TOMI’s SteraMist bacteria reducing mist to four U.S. hospitals including TOMI’s newest addition, Northwest Hospital, located in Randallstown, Maryland.
Dr. Shane also reported that the SteraMist system is currently being tested in the facilities of two other major U.S. hospitals and is under active consideration at several other major U.S. hospitals.
In connection with TOMI’s recent hospital-based activities, Dr. Shane announced that, at the invitation from a representative of the Social Security Program of Panama, TOMI was approved to perform an official pilot study, which TOMI completed, to remediate accumulated biological/bacterial colonies. The study determined that TOMI had achieved the expected amount of biological/bacterial colony reductions with its products. Panama’s Social Security Program subsequently engaged TOMI to expand this program at its hospitals.
