|Nano Mask Issues Corporate Update |
FISHKILL, N.Y., Jan. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Nano Mask, Inc. (NMI) (Pinksheets: NANM), a materials technology development company focused on health and wellness related markets, today issued the following corporate update:
X-STATIC?- Infection Prevention Textiles(TM)
NMI, in conjunction with its strategic partner Noble Biomaterials, Inc., has developed a host of new products incorporating Noble's X-STATIC? silver antimicrobial technology. X-STATIC? is clinically proven to eliminate 99% of bacteria directly on the fabrics, providing comprehensive, continuous and permanent antimicrobial protection.
Hospital acquired infection is a major problem worldwide and by offering a whole suite of products to combat this problem, NMI is positioning itself to be a participant in this rapidly growing market. Fabrics made with X-STATIC? fibers are flexible, with the natural look and feel of traditional textiles, while offering all the benefits of pure silver. The product line consists of professional and patient wear, bed linens, cubical curtains and customized window and wall coverings. The products are now available globally.
NMI will reintroduce RespAide, a state-of-the-art cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) mask, to the market. RespAide is designed to minimize the potential for transmission of contagious diseases during the administration of CPR and has been granted FDA 510K approval as a Class II medical device. NMI has contracted an Arizona-based company to manufacture the product and has been taking pre-orders for the product from both U.S. and international customers. NMI expects to formally relaunch RespAide in February 2012.
SEC Reporting Progress
NMI has been diligently working to bring its Securities and Exchange Commission filings current and expects to achieve this objective by the end of January 2012.
In the last six months of 2011 NMI received purchase orders of approximately $ 500,000 and shipped approximately $ 250,000 of product; most of the balance of the purchase orders is expected to ship within the next 30 days. The products on which purchase orders have been received are: products powered by X-STATIC antimicrobial fabric technology, enzymatic detergents, N99 ViraMask, RespAide and disposable cubicle curtains.
