Quick-Med Technologies Inc, a life sciences company that is developing innovative technologies for the healthcare and consumer markets, announced its new Stay Fresh Antimicrobial Technology will be featured in a podium presentation at the 2011 Techtextil Symposium. The Techtextil Symposium and Exhibition, held March 15-17, is the leading industry meeting in North America dedicated to technical textiles and nonwovens.

Stay Fresh is the newest element of Quick-Med's suite of antimicrobial technologies. It has been designed to rid fabrics of bacteria and fungi responsible for odor and staining in both consumer and institutional applications.

Stay Fresh represents a breakthrough antimicrobial technology. What makes Stay Fresh different from other antimicrobials is its chemistry and extraordinary durability. The active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide – the ingredient that provides the gentle disinfecting and bleaching action in today's generation of color-safe, alternative bleaches. This advance is made possible by Quick-Med's development of the first commercially viable technology for bonding the active ingredient onto the textile.

The symposium presentation, entitled "Peroxide-Based Fabric Functionalization for Antimicrobial and Antifungal Properties", will be delivered by Dr. Bernd Liesenfeld, Principal Scientist and co-inventor of Stay Fresh. Dr. Liesenfeld will describe the chemistry and highly durable efficacy of this revolutionary technology, which is easily applied by textile companies in the manufacturing or finishing process.

"Stay Fresh textile treatment locks the power of hydrogen peroxide into fabrics," according to Dr. Liesenfeld. "Stay Fresh represents a significant advance toward Quick-Med's mission of improving public health by developing and commercializing technologies that interrupt the transfer of pathogens safely, effectively, and affordably through the use of environmentally friendly chemistries."

Stay Fresh is Quick-Med's newest technology platform, offering textile companies a breakthrough in antimicrobial protection to enhance and differentiate their products. Today's leading freshness-enhancing textile technologies are limited in their ability to destroy certain bacteria and unable to maintain efficacy throughout the life of laundered textiles. Stay Fresh is designed to overcome these limitations by providing cost-effective, durable, and sustained antimicrobial protection.
