November 27, 2001 — HAUPPAUGE, NY — Spectrum Homeland Security Solutions, Inc. (SHSS) has signed an exclusive distribution, marketing and global internet rights agreement with Spectronics Corporation, for the DEGERM-INATOR.
Homeland Security Solutions, Inc. is in a strategic alliance to develop and distribute UV Technology sterilization devices for commercial and residential applications.
The DEGERM-INATOR is a hand held instrument that uses discrete germicidal ultraviolet radiation to kill or render harmless many germs, viruses, microorganisms or other pathogens, these include but are not limited to the following; Escherichia coli (E. coli), salmonella, paratyphi-enteric fever, nitric comma (Cholera), leptospira canicola (infectious jaundice), infectious hepatitis, and influenza. The DEGERM-INATOR sanitizes a wide range of products which people use on a daily basis, such as, computer keyboards, doorknobs, telephone receivers, toilet flush handles and ATM touch screens.
Spectrum Brands will be launching a National Direct Response Marketing Program for the DEGERM-INATOR. Thereafter, Spectrum intends to sell through traditional retail outlets.
“With the recent focus on bacteria and germs and the detrimental effect on our society, we feel that this is a highly effective and practical product to offer to the American people. Additionally, I believe this will be a very successful product for Spectrum Brands,” said Michael J. Burns, president of Speptrum.
For more than 40 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended the ultraviolet germicidal method to destroy disease-causing germs.
