FREDERICK, Md., Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TOMI Environmental Solutions, Inc. ® (“TOMI”) (NASDAQ: TOMZ), a global company that specializes in disinfection and decontamination through the utilization of its premier Binary Ionization Technology (BIT) platform, is assisting the decontamination efforts of On Demand Pharmaceuticals, an innovative technology company transforming how medicines are made, by providing its SteraMist Environmental Systems for use at On Demand Pharmaceutical’s modular cleanroom.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) developed TOMI BIT, the industry’s only low-grade hydrogen peroxide-based solution capable of delivering six-log kill with a dwell time of seconds, without compromising human health or adversely affecting medical instruments, lab equipment or sensitive electronics. Likewise, DARPA has funded On Demand Pharmaceuticals to further revolutionize how drugs are made through – “Pharmacy on Demand” (PoD), a dynamic, modular platform technology that can produce anything from key starting materials to active pharmaceutical ingredients, and final formulated drugs. In October 2021, On Demand Pharmaceuticals purchased a SteraMist Environment System to be used routinely to decontaminate small scale areas where drugs are manufactured within their modular cleanroom and is exploring the potential addition of more mobile units as well as a Custom Engineered System to enhance their decontamination needs throughout the facility. The pairing of a DARPA-funded medicine manufacturing initiative with a DARPA-developed disinfection and decontamination technology creates a powerful and unique partnership.
John Lewin, On Demand Pharmaceuticals’ Chief Medical Officer, states, “On Demand Pharmaceuticals has implemented SteraMist for routine decontamination due to the technology’s proven effectiveness, material compatibility, speed, and ease-of-use. SteraMist, a DARPA associated technology, can be used on sensitive equipment, eliminating the need to remove cumbersome devices and electronics and allows us to disinfect quickly.”
Elissa J. (E.J.) Shane, TOMI Chief Operating Officer, states, “We are pleased to partner with a DARPA-funded innovative technology company, On Demand Pharmaceuticals. Both TOMI and On Demand share the vision of revolutionizing their respective industries, through the development of enhanced technology to promote health and safety. We look forward to continuing our partnership and our mutual mission to innovate for a safer world.”
