Foamtec International Takes the Strain Out of Cleanroom Mopping

    OCEANSIDE, Calif., June 1 /CNW/ -- Foamtec International LLC today
introduced PharmaMOP(TM), the cleanroom industry's lightest weight mop for
cleaning and disinfecting aseptic manufacturing areas.  At 485 grams,
PharmaMOP(TM) sets the standard for ergonomics, allowing implementation of
ceiling, wall and floor cleaning SOPs without strain.  Key design elements
include a patent-pending mop head that assures compliance with contact time
SOPs when applying disinfectants in cleanrooms.

    "At a major Pharmaceutical customer, PharmaMOP(TM) replaced expensive and
heavy string mops, re-washable flat mops and foam mops which has eased
training and improved SOP compliance," said Nam Chantepie, Operations Manager
of Controlled Contamination Services.  "Customers are excited about
PharmaMOP's control and ease of use it affords the operator in applying
disinfectants to walls, ceilings and non-skid flooring," said Brian Thaler, VP
of Marketing for Foamtec International.

    Central to PharmaMOP's performance is a patent-pending mop head
constructed of cleanroom foam enclosed in cleanroom polyester or microfiber
fabric.  This tri-layer design eliminates the need for a wringer and enables
operators to apply the proper amount of disinfectants to better comply with
decontamination SOPs. According to John Lindsay, President of the Aseptic
Training Institute, "It is common for Pharmaceutical and Medical Device
manufacturers to need multiple mopping systems but PharmaMOP's light weight
and large surface area allows them to consolidate mop types, easing operator
training and SOP compliance."

    "European Pharmaceutical manufacturers have requested a light-weight
ergonomic solution," said Linda Vereycken, CEO of CCSbe.  "Existing mops,
being so heavy, hinder operators in properly implementing cleaning SOP's. The
PharmaMOP(TM) system will be a benefit to our customers." For further
