Produce Decontamination Technology Provisional Patent Application Filed by Gyrotron Technology Inc.

BENSALEM, PA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) -  Gyrotron Technology Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GYTI), developer of innovative industrial technologies, has filed a further provisional patent application for its technology for decontamination of solid and semi-solid produce (e.g. cantaloupes, cucumbers and fruit). In GYTI's laboratory scale tests, heating surfaces of certain kinds of produce for a small fraction of a second with a gyrotron, a very powerful source of high frequency microwave energy, reduced the bacteria count on those surfaces by a factor of greater than 100,000, without compromising appearance. 

Potential advantages of GYTI's technology include:

1. a drastic decrease in bacteria count and therefore a significant decrease in cases of produce borne illness in the US and worldwide;
2. an environmentally friendly process;
3. cost savings in the decontamination process.

"We are very pleased with the opportunity to help address a major public health concern and at the same time provide substantial commercial benefits to the produce industry," said Dr. Vlad Sklyar, President of GYTI. "Produce decontamination is a very large market opportunity for us."
