Varigard Products Proven to Prevent the Tactile Spread of SARS-CoV-2 and B117 UK Strain
FOLEY, Ala., March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Varigard and Synergy Laboratories have announced the test results of an advanced hand sanitizing gel and surface disinfectant. The test results illustrated that the Varigard hand sanitizer is able to sequester SARS-CoV-2 and prevent its tactile transfer for two hours after initial application. Also, the same results were achieved with its organic surface spray, which continues to sequester for over 20 hours after initial application. In other words, Varigard products prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 to or from surfaces or people by touch. These products contain patented organic polymers that also encapsulate the alcohols and prevent them from being absorbed into the skin.
Under the supervision of Synergy Laboratories, a protocol was developed to test whether Varigard products could sequester (physically trap) and prevent the transfer of SARS-CoV-2 for extended periods of time. Brad Pitts, CEO of Synergy, said, "We are excited to be witness to the groundbreaking technology that Varigard has presented. The effectiveness of their products on SARS-CoV-2 has truly surprised us. Varigard's ability to sequester these pathogens on contact makes it one of the most effective ways to stop the tactile spread of SARS-CoV-2."
Recently, Synergy Laboratories was also able to identify the COVID-19 UK Strain (SARS-CoV-2: B117) in Mobile, Alabama, using its advanced genetic sequencing platform. The same testing protocols were performed using Varigard products against the U.K. variant with the same outstanding results. "We are 100% focused on finding safe and effective ways to stop the spread of these dangerous pathogens," said Mike Paolillo, CEO of Varigard. "Being able to prove the efficacy of our products on both the original COVID-19 strain and the U.K. variant is a huge milestone for Varigard."
