BIOPROTECT™ AND JET LINX
BIOPROTECT™ has partnered with Jet Linx, the largest private jet fleet serving the New York area. BIOPROTECT™ will provide our EPA-registered antimicrobial technology to protect surfaces for up to 90-days, providing such surfaces with disinfection and durable long term protection that kills and inhibits the growth of problematic bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoans, viruses and other microorganisms that can inhabit surfaces.
Extensive laboratory testing has confirmed that BIOPROTECT™ is completely safe and extremely effective against all types of bacteria, mold and viruses. Jet Linx is proud to be the first and only airline to install BIOPROTECT™ and its groundbreaking antimicrobial technology to safeguard their members and owners.
BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM FAQS
WHAT DOES THE BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM MEAN TO JET LINX CLIENTS?
Assurance that their aircraft and their Base terminals are not just clean, but disinfected and protected from harmful viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms. Additionally, two international centers of excellence of the world renowned Global Virus Network independently demonstrated that the BIOPROTECT™ formulation by ViaClean Technologies eradicates SARS-CoV-2 (the unique coronavirus that causes COVID-19) on surfaces and provides continuous residual viricidal activity for more than six weeks (GVN.org).
WHAT IS THE BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
The BIOPROTECTUs™ System uses patented, EPA-registered and FDA-compliant technologies to disinfect and create durable long-term protection for porous and non-porous surfaces. The BIOPROTECT™ product kills and inhibits the growth of problematic bacteria, fungi (like Trichophyton mentagrophytes), algae, protozoans, viruses and other microorganisms that can inhabit many surfaces. Extensive laboratory testing has established and corroborated that the BIOPROTECTUs™ System quickly eliminates and provides long-term eradication and suppression of germs and microorganisms.
DOES THE BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM WORK AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19?
Two separate Centers of Research Excellence within the Global Virus Network (GVN), both of which have state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to the study of viruses on various surfaces and are among the very few research centers throughout the world that have access to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) isolate for investigation and testing purposes, independently conducted an extensive series of tests on BIOPROTECT™ in May 2020. Tests included ASTM E1053 tests, which is the standard methodology for assessing the virucidal efficacy of liquid, aerosol or trigger-spray microbicides on environmental surfaces. Scientists at both facilities definitively demonstrated that BIOPROTECT™, when applied both to porous and to non-porous surfaces, quickly eliminates SARS-CoV-2 and creates a highly durable protective coating that continuously eradicates and prevents SARS-CoV-2 growth.
WHAT IS THE GLOBAL VIRUS NETWORK?
The Global Virus Network is a coalition comprised of leading virologists spanning 53 Centers, nine Affiliates, and more than 30 countries worldwide, all working to advance knowledge about how viruses make us sick and to develop drugs and vaccines to prevent illness and death.
WHAT ARE SOME REAL-LIFE EXAMPLES OF ITS EFFICACY?
The BIOPROTECTUs™ System is proven to be effective on pet dander, dust mite and cockroach allergens, with a 30-second kill time on S.Enterica and S.Aureus The BIOPROTECTUs™ System kills over 30 different microorganisms. It has been field tested and shown to eliminate a broad range of viruses and bacteria including superbugs like MRSA, H1N1, E.Coli, Salmonella and Listeria in less than 60 seconds. The system is also effective against odor-causing bacteria and bacteria that causes staining and discoloration. In testing at the Global Virus Network conducted in May of 2020, it was determined that BIOPROTECT™ also quickly eliminates SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) and continuously prevents SARS-CoV-2 growth.
WHY DID JET LINX CHOOSE TO ADD THE BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM TO THEIR CLEANING PROTOCOL?
Common surfaces (touchpoints) are cleaned with poisonous disinfectants that leave behind no effective residual protection and within hours of disinfection, bacteria will grow exponentially presenting a renewed risk. BIOPROTECT™ provides persistent and continuous protection by creating a microscopic shield on porous and non-porous surfaces, helping ensure these outbreaks are prevented. Augmenting Jet Linx’s current cleaning protocols with this proven antimicrobial solution treatment is helping to prevent germs on surfaces from adapting or building resistance. Prevention is the best treatment and this is the first product to offer a system to disinfect, protect and prevent against germs (bacteria and viruses).
HOW LONG DOES THE BIOPROTECTUS™ SYSTEM OF PRODUCTS PROTECT A SURFACE?
With BIOPROTECT™, protection begins 60 seconds after the product is applied, and fully polymerizes in three minutes. BIOPROTECT™ persistently and continuously protects surfaces for 90 days. Jet Linx’s product implementation includes a two-step process to first sanitize and destroy all microbes, virus, bacteria and mold, and then to apply the protectant.
WHAT IS THE LONG-TERM EFFICACY OF THE PRODUCT IN TERMS OF MICROBIAL RESISTANCE TO IT?
Not only is BIOPROTECT™ more effective than most cleaning products on the market today, it also helps prevent mutation of adaptive germs while continuing to actively protect the treated surface in dry state for 90 days. Other technologies work by “uploading” into the microorganism resulting sometimes in a mutation of the original microorganism. BIOPROTECT™ does NOT promote adaptive organisms.
IS THE PRODUCT TOXIC?
No, BIOPROTECT™ is safe for humans and the environment and has passed FDA cytotoxicity. BIOPROTECT™ is also water-based with patented technology that uses ZERO triclosan, phenols, arsenic, titanium, heavy metals or poisons. BIOPROTECT™ carries an FDA master allowance file (MAF) through the CDRH providing for use in medical devices (instruments and types of implants). It also has multiple EPA registrations including approval with the RTU formulation for FCSS (Food Contact Surface Safe). The product is covalently bonded to the substrate, meaning there is no possibility of leaching into the surrounding environment. Even if it were to be released, the product is non-toxic for humans and animals so there would be no lasting damage. Also, the product does not degrade or erode like current chemical approaches BIOPROTECT™ is also not leaching, migrating, flammable, or corrosive.
