GENSTAR TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES WORLD’S FIRST SUCTION REGULATOR AND FLOWMETER WITH ANTIMICROBIAL PROTECTION
Chino, California, Oct 10, 2009 – Genstar Technologies Company Inc., a world leader in gas control systems, today has announced it has partnered with Agion Technologies, the worldwide leader in naturally-occurring silver-based antimicrobial solutions, to offer the world’s first suction regulator and flowmeter with built-in antimicrobial protection.

Awareness of microbes in healthcare settings is on the rise, particularly with regards to the surfaces of medical devices and equipment. Cleanliness has become a strategic imperative for healthcare institutions worldwide. Gentec® suction regulator and flowmeter can help hospitals maintain and improve surface cleanliness.

“With our partnership with Agion, we are able to provide top of the line medical devices enhanced with industry-leading antimicrobial protection.” said Thomas Kuo, CEO of Genstar Technologies Company, Inc

The flowmeter will feature an antimicrobial treated knob, a high-touch area that is susceptible to microbial growth. The suction regulator will have antimicrobial protection on the knobs and the body. The antimicrobial treated devices will continue to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi on the surface and maintain antimicrobial efficacy for the life of the products.
