BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. (“TOMI”) (OTCBB:TOMZ), a global bacteria decontamination and infectious disease control company, announced today that it completed the acquisition of binary ionization technology and related patents from L-3 Applied Technologies, Inc. (“L-3”), for $3,500,000 in cash.
The technology relates to a disinfection system that applies cold plasma activation to a hydrogen peroxide-based aerosol (“BIT”). L-3 will continue to have the exclusive license to sell BIT products covered by the transferred technology to the military. BIT, also known as SteraMist, deactivates organic compounds and quickly and effectively kills viruses, bacteria, spores, mold, and fungi in the air and on surfaces. This fast-acting biological disinfection leaves no residue or noxious fumes and is environmentally friendly.
Dr. Halden Shane, TOMI’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are thrilled to have completed this acquisition. Today, TOMI has obtained control of this innovative, patented technology. We have been selling this product line over the past two and one-half years and have made inroads into U.S. and International Healthcare markets along with the Professional Remediation Industry. Now that we’ve taken over the technology in full, with the exception of military sales, we have the ability and intent to build on the client base we’ve been cultivating, as well as expanding into other market segments.”
