BIOMATRx, a new antimicrobial product, is a water-soluble, non-toxic substance that can be applied to surfaces with a sponge, mop, or spray, to establish a protective surface that reportedly kills bacteria, viruses, molds, mildew, and yeasts.

The clear, non-leaching solution kills pathogens mechanically and can last reportedly 3-5 years on surfaces not exposed to abrasion and 3-6 months on wall, floors, furniture, carpets, and counters. The solution can also be applied to air conditioning filters, restrooms, bed linens, subways seats, school desks, and children's toys. The company is marketing the antimicrobial as a disinfectant for any surface that may be prone to transmitting infectious microbes.
