Ortho Organizers Partners with AgION Technologies to Launch OrthoShield(TM) Orthodontic Antimicrobial Technology Product Line

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 27 // -- Ortho Organizers, Inc., a leading manufacturer of orthodontic products, announced today that it is introducing OrthoShield Orthodontic Antimicrobial Technology developed in partnership with AgION Technology, Inc. This innovative technology, which will be incorporated into several products, aids in reducing microbial growth on treated surfaces.

AgION Antimicrobial Technology consists of a patented delivery process that releases non-toxic, natural silver ions in the presence of moisture. Ortho Organizers' OrthoShield Orthodontic Antimicrobial products are embedded with silver ions which effectively reduce and inhibit microbial growth on the surfaces of OrthoShield Orthodontic Antimicrobial Technology products throughout the life of the product. "AgION's Antimicrobial compound has been proven effective against a broad range of microbes, yet safe enough for human and food contact so this is an ideal match for Ortho Organizers' OrthoShield Orthodontic Antimicrobial products and Agion Technologies," said Jeff Trogolo, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, AgION Technologies.

AgION Antimicrobial Technology has broad regulatory approval and its silver-based compound is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). "Our new alliance with AgION Technology, Inc. allows Ortho Organizers to offer innovative products to meet market demand and provide the orthodontic community with a viable alternative in the fight against poor oral hygiene and health and the negative affects that can occur during treatment for orthodontic patients and practitioners alike," said George Guttroff, President of Ortho Organizers.
