YPB Lodges Patent for Disinfectant Tracing Solution

  • Invention Patent accepted on 31 December 2020 by China SIPO
  • Invention claims a tracing solution to establish if a surface has been recently sterilized

YPB Group Limited (“YPB” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has lodged an invention patent application with China’s patent authority (SIPO) on 31 December 2020 (SIPO reference number 202011604013.1).

The invention belongs to the field of sterilization, in particular to a disinfectant with an indicative tracer function and its application. In short, the invention adds a luminescent tracer to the disinfectant, first, by colour-showing to determine whether an area has been disinfected, and secondly, by further luminescence testing, to confirm whether the environmental surface has been disinfected, disinfection time and whether re-sterilization is required. The invention is universal in nature and when combined with conventionally used disinfection solutions, can quickly determine whether daily disinfection is in place, disinfection time and the need for any re-sterilization.

The Company will provide further updates on the status of the patent application.

This announcement has been authorised by the Board of YPB Group Limited.
