Founded in January 1994, with corporate offices in Chicago, a manufacturing subsidiary in the Rep. of Singapore,Bernard Technology Asia Pacific (“BTAP”). Microsphère® combines food-grade compatible components to microbicide and odor neutralizers, effective in controlling viruses, bacteria molds, algae. The active compound is a broad-spectrum microbiocide (chlorine dioxide) with no known microbial resistance, currently in drinking water, paper bleaching, and medical/food disinfectants. The BTI Microsphère® technology addresses the microbial contamination problem with controlled release, solid state system that mitigates contamination, eliminates/reduces odor caused by microorganisms - Microatmosphère®, a vapor phase system that controls biological contamination without direct surface contact.
