BioTech Medics Creates Project: Protect the Kids Web Site

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - BioTech Medics, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BMCS) announces that in response to the outcry of parents, grandparents and teachers worldwide over alcohol and alcohol gel hand sanitizer poisoning of children, BioTech Medics has created a public service web site to inform the public as to the dangers of alcohol and alcohol gel hand sanitizer poisoning.

"The web site is loaded with vital information and links on how to contact the Poison Control Center if your child accidentally swallows alcohol or alcohol gels. There is a link to an article from Dr. Gupta of CNN on alcohol hand sanitizer poisoning of children. The true heart wrenching story of a mother and her child's agony of being rushed to the hospital after the child ingested alcohol hand sanitizer is also linked to our web site," said Keith Houser, CEO of BioTech Medics.

A recent ATS Lab Study proved that SBHAN Antiseptic Hand Sanitizer caused a 96% reduction (killing) of the H1N1 virus titer using an ex-vivo skin model test method. The SHBAN Antiseptic has had other independent clinical tests which demonstrated the SHBAN ability to continue to kill virus titer, germs, fungus, mold, mildew and bacteria over various testing periods from 10 seconds to 4 hours. This study and a half dozen other studies confirms the long-lasting effectiveness of SBHAN in reducing germs, bacteria and viruses. Alcohol gel hand sanitizers only kill germs while wet.

SHBAN has also been independently clinically tested to prove SHBAN is non-toxic (causing no dermatitis on human skin).

SHBAN is a bio-degradable product superior to most antiseptics because 1) SHBAN is longer lasting, SHBAN does not stop working within 15 seconds after application (like alcohol gels); 2) SHBAN is non-toxic when used as directed on humans; 3) SHBAN does NOT contain alcohol or alcohol gel which has poisoned over 22,000 children according to AAPCA; 4) SHBAN is non-staining, non-bleaching; 5) SHBAN is non-flammable and 6) SHBAN has no harmful or toxic odors. Most hand sanitizer products cannot make all of these claims. It is essential that people buying hand sanitizers know all the facts.

SHBAN is protected under US Letters of Patent #5,514,808, #5,574,050, #5,679,711 and #5,585,391 and one US & one pending international patent. SHBAN is a trademark of BioTech Medics, Inc.

BioTech recently announced foreign distribution agreements in Pakistan, Dubai and Brazil (pending). Additional distribution negotiations are in progress for Turkey, Qatar, Greece, Mexico, Central America and Thailand. BioTech Medics estimates 2010 SHBAN worldwide sales at $50 million. USA distribution agreements are also pending.
