a remarkable discovery
Like many great inventions through history, BYOTROL24™ was discovered by accident. A chemist in England aimed to develop a better paint that would resist mold and mildew. Along the way, he discovered a formulation for a long-lasting surface sanitizer he called “BYOTROL”®.
The name “BYOTROL”® is not a chemical. It is a blended word derived from the combination of “biosphere” (which comprises all living organisms, including germs) plus “control”.
Many years followed during which the formulation was perfected by Byotrol’s scientists working alongside scientists and researchers at Manchester University in England.
The past five years have been devoted to thorough product testing to validate that BYOTROL24™ WORKS! The formula was registered in 2017 with the Environmental Protection Agency. In 2018, BYOTROL24™ was registered in all 50 states and started making its way into retail stores and online.
Byotrol is led by a dedicated team of microbiologists, scientists, product developers, lab technicians, and other professionals who work hard each day in state-of-the-art research facilities to deliver “Smart Science for a Cleaner World.”™
Byotrol is devoted to the development of innovative antimicrobial solutions that improve upon traditional cleaning and sanitizing methods. Headquartered in a university research park near Manchester, England, Byotrol has a global reach that extends from Europe to North America, Asia and South Africa. A wide range of branded and licensed technologies and products span both the consumer and professional segments. The company’s U.S. operating division, Byotrol Inc., is based in Atlanta.
- 30 APR 2019 - Innovative Household Cleaner Fights Bacteria for 24 Hours
Atlanta, GA (April 30, 2019) – With a standard disinfectant cleaner, germs can re-contaminate treated surfaces within just minutes. A swipe of a dirty hand or a wayward sneeze is all it takes to re-introduce germs to a clean surface. Germs can then survive on surfaces for hours or even days. Now, an advanced new cleaner — Byotrol24™ —not only kills over 99.9% of germs but also keeps eliminating new bacteria on surfaces all day long, even after multiple touches.
Byotrol24 (www.Byotrol24.com) is available at select Target stores and online at Target.com and Amazon.com. Two new Byotrol24 scents — Lavender Morning™ 24-hour fragrance and Hawaiian Sunrise Citrus™ 24-hour fragrance — were introduced this week at Target. These fragrances are designed to last for 24 hours to provide a sensory cue that Byotrol24 is working around the clock to eliminate over 99.9% of bacteria.
Byotrol24 eliminates Flu and Cold viruses, E. coli, Salmonella, Staph, Strep, Listeria, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and other germs. Of particular note is this product’s ability to kill Norovirus, a deadly virus especially difficult to kill. Norovirus contributes to 71,000 hospitalizations each year, according to the CDC. In addition, what makes Byotrol24 revolutionary and unique is its patented cleaning formula that is scientifically proven by independent testing to keep surfaces sanitized for 24 hours with just one treatment.
Whereas many standard cleaners today can be harsh on surfaces as well as slightly or moderately toxic to people and pets, Byotrol24 is a non-harsh disinfectant and surface sanitizer that emits no chemical fumes and even requires no gloves to use. Byotrol24 is ideal for use on household surfaces, especially those that are frequently touched – door handles, refrigerator handles, sinks and sink handles, kids’ toys, toilets and toilet handles, for example.
In addition, Byotrol24 is ideal for eliminating harmful microbes in work spaces, such as desks, phones, conference tables, elevator buttons and other surfaces. Researchers at the University of Arizona found that just one contaminated door handle can spread germs to 40-60% other “high-touch” surfaces in the office within only 2 to 4 hours.
“We are excited to introduce our Lavender Morning and Hawaiian Sunrise Citrus scented Byotrol24 cleaners at Target,” said Alex Espalin, chief marketing officer for Byotrol. “This innovative cleaning product is a scientific breakthrough in germ control, the only household cleaner that controls bacteria for 24 hours. Byotrol24 will make a positive difference in people’s lives to help stop the spread of germs.”

- 19 JUL 2018 - Scientific Breakthrough: New 24-Hour Sanitizer Now Available
ATLANTA, July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BYOTROL24™ (www.Byotrol24.com), a revolutionary new disinfectant cleaner that takes the fight against germs to a new level, today announces the availability of its product line at Amazon.com, Target.com and select Target retail stores across the country. While other disinfectants may kill germs, the result only lasts a few minutes as surfaces quickly become re-contaminated with new odor-causing and illness-inducing germs. BYOTROL24™ is a leap forward among household cleaners with an advanced formula that keeps surfaces sanitized for 24 hours by actively killing new germs that emerge.
The Truth About Germs
Many standard cleaning products are effective at removing most germs (99.9 percent) on surfaces – at least initially. What many consumers do not realize is that unlike dirt and grime, which take a while to accumulate again, germs begin growing back almost instantly. Some bacteria, such as certain types of Escherichia coli (E.coli) that cause intestinal infection, can reproduce every 20 minutes. At that rate of growth, a single bacterium can grow into trillions of bacteria in one day. Therefore, while surfaces treated with standard cleaning products may look and smell clean, they are actually infested with harmful germs within minutes of treatment.
Smart Science for an Evolving World
Because the battle to keep homes clean and germ-free is a constant one, scientists at Byotrol spent the past five years developing a breakthrough product for the home that continues killing germs for 24 hours. BYOTROL24™ has demonstrated 24-hour protection against germs in rigorous testing at independent laboratories. In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has thoroughly evaluated BYOTROL24™ and confirmed its cleaning and disinfecting efficacy on hard surfaces throughout the home.
To ensure BYOTROL24™ disinfectant cleaner would be safe to use around families and pets, Byotrol's scientists developed a formula that is gentle on surfaces, produces no harmful fumes and leaves no harsh chemical residue. In fact, the EPA also ranked BYOTROL24 as one of the least toxic household disinfectant cleaners – placing BYOTROL24 into the same low-toxicity category as household disinfectant cleaners labeled as "natural."
"We are very pleased to introduce a revolutionary cleaning innovation that will protect people from germs, stop the spread of infection, and help save lives," says Alex Espalin, chief marketing officer for Byotrol Incorporated. "It has been an extraordinary journey for the Byotrol team – from product development in the lab to many rounds of testing and product validation, to now bringing BYOTROL24™ into homes and the public places where we need long-lasting protection from germs the most."
