Original Press Release:
New Anti-Microbial Glove for Food Service Protects Against Salmonella, E-Coli & MRSA!
Omni International LLC of Bedford, NH, a leading United States and North American Glove Company, is pleased to announce it has signed a licensing agreement with Anti-Microbial Solutions LLC (AMS) in utilizing their new Anti-Microbial Technology in our OmniShield(TM) family of food service gloves. Future product expansion into other Omni International gloves is currently in development.
The OmniShield(TM) AMS anti-microbial process is completely safe for use in any environment. The new AMS Worldwide Patent Pending Anti-microbial has been developed using all EPA Registered ingredients and has been shown in independent lad tests to be 99% effective against certain harmful bacteria. This new AMS technology capitalizes on the effects of non-carcinogenic, non-allergenic and anti-fungal agents.
OmniShield(TM) are the first gloves known to have anti-microbial qualities built into the product, not just on it. There are products, in development and that were previously produced, which utilize a topical coating. However , our technology marries the polymer with the Anti-Microbial agent. It can't be rubbed off - in fact it remains 99% effective against bacteria and fungi for the life of the product. The effectiveness of a coated anti-microbial agent could diminish upon exposure to the atmosphere and environment while the gloves are in storage. Literally, AMS Technology becomes an integral part of the product.
AMS Technology also has made the OmniShield(TM) Food Service Gloves softer, silkier and more comfortable to wear than an untreated glove product.
AS demand for protective gloves continues to grow due to increased awareness, enhanced barrier protection and the higher probability of cross contamination, AMS Technology creates a stronger protection. Omni International already has commitments from its major food service customers to convert their existing glove usage over to the OmniShield(TM) AMS Anti-Microbial Technology.
