First South African Biotech Ever to Achieve EU Biocidal Registration
Posted by Dinesh Kumar on July 14th, 2021
At the end of a very long, very expensive five years of testing and following a rigorous, strict application process, Biodx has finally achieved EU registration* for their b bioactive™ (DECONT-X™) disinfectant technology.
“It’s been a daunting road but one where the end was only possible with the help of a dedicated team, whose assistance made this dream a reality. Dr Mark Kelly, Biodx’s Chief Scientist who has been with me every step of the way, scientist Dr Jan Reynhardt, CEO of GrnCAT Holdings, together with Dr Lucia Steenkamp, principle scientist at the CSIR and her team, who offered irreplaceable guidance throughout the research,” says Burt Rodrigues, proud CEO of Biodx.
“We’re also indebted to The Netherlands Organisation (TNO) who carried out the vital test work needed to meet the extremely strict levels of acceptance for this registration, together with Triskelion (Netherlands) who painstakingly prepared the necessary dossiers and followed through with the regulators.
“We also can’t forget the DST (Department of Science and Technology), IDC (Industrial Development Council) and the TIA (Technology Innovation Agency) who initially helped us get this project off the ground.”
