JUPITER, Fla., June 25, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- BioQuest Technologies, Inc., (Pink Sheets:BQTG), a leading developer of innovative, environmentally safe antimicrobial products, today announced its BioShield 75/Wix Cabin Air Filters will be carried by NAPA Auto Parts and its more than 12,000 retail locations throughout the U.S. NAPA Auto Parts is the industry leader in world-class auto parts. NAPA filters with BioShield 75 will be available early 2008 at over 6,000 NAPA Auto Parts stores and 12,000 NAPA AutoCare Centers nationwide.
BioShield 75 uses exclusive patented technology developed by scientists for IndusCo Ltd. the manufacturing facility and BioQuest Technologies, and has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for a wide variety of uses, including air filtration. When treated with BioShield 75, filter surfaces are significantly less susceptible to the growth of molds, mildew, fungi and odor-causing bacteria. BioShield 75 bonds to the filter and is not released in the air, making it extremely safe.
"Our filters are very efficient at cleaning cabin air," said Jim Bruney, Director of CRM -- NAPA Filters. "With the addition of BioShield 75, they are now able to virtually eliminate the odors, mold and mildew that collect on all filters over times. This means a cleaner, healthier ride for drivers and passengers."
BioShield(r) 75 is a revolutionary way of inhibiting the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi. Unlike most other antimicrobial agents, which poison the microbes, BioShield(r) 75 physically attacks the microbes and renders them inert.
"It is this physical process that makes NAPA Filters with BioShield(r) 75 so effective and so safe," said Joe Mason, president of IndusCo. the manufacturing partner of BioQuest Technologies. "There are no poisons involved. There is nothing harmful to humans."
NAPA Filters provides filters for cars, light and heavy duty trucks, diesel pickup trucks, tractors, heavy duty construction and off-road and over the road heavy duty vehicles.
"Working with NAPA, the industry leader in auto parts, is a very significant event for our company since it gives us a major distribution channel with such a well established company," said Arne Rotne II, CEO of BioQuest Technologies, Inc. "NAPA's brand, fierce commitment to quality and excellent reputation from Main Street to Wall Street gives our NAPA Filter with BioShield 75 product a unique platform on which to succeed in a big way. We are very enthusiastic about this relationship and believe it will reap financial rewards for both parties."
