Sonoma Pharmaceuticals and MicroSafe Group Announce that Nanocyn® Disinfectant & Sanitizer Has Received Approval to Be Entered Into the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) for use against COVID-19

PETALUMA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNOA), a global healthcare leader developing and producing stabilized hypochlorous acid (HOCl) products for a wide range of applications, including wound care, eye care and dermatological conditions, and its partner, the MicroSafe Group, Dubai, announce an important break-through in the fight of the global coronavirus pandemic. MicroSafe Care Australia received approval for their patented and trademarked Nanocyn® Disinfectant & Sanitizer, which is manufactured by Sonoma using its patented Microcyn® Technology, to be entered into the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) for use against SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Claims that a disinfectant has a virucidal effect must be expressly permitted by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration before being used in consumer advertising (including on the label) in Australia.

Recently, Sonoma announced that it had successfully closed an Asset Purchase Agreement with MicroSafe Group, for the exclusive rights of the Microcyn® technology-based disinfectant for sale in the Australian market under the brand name Nanocyn® and the European and Middle Eastern markets under the brand name MicroSafe®.

“We have been fighting global pandemics for nearly 20 years with our safe and non-toxic Microcyn® based disinfectant and we are very pleased with the test results and subsequent approval of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) label claim for our Nanocyn® disinfectant in Australia. The label claim comes with a 30 second virucidal kill time on hard surfaces, a landmark kill time for a non-toxic disinfectant,” Mrs. Safa Qadumi, Founder and CEO of the MicroSafe Group Dubai, said.

“We have known for years that our Microcyn® Technology is effective against a number of pathogens, including viruses, so we are pleased to get this acknowledgement from the ARTG that our technology is effective in killing COVID-19,” said Amy Trombly, CEO of Sonoma Pharmaceuticals. She continued, “As the pandemic has spread around the world, we are excited to work with partners like MicroSafe Group to provide a safer environment for people during this difficult time. As an international company selling products in 53 countries around the world, we are continuously seeking additional partners to expand our domestic and global reach in distributing our products.”
