20110293681HAND SANITIZING PATCH HAVING AN INTEGRALLY BONDED ANTIMICROBIAL - The present invention provides for topical adhesive patch that includes a backing having a front side and a back side; a formulation in contact with the front side of the backing, the formulation including an adhesive; and at least one antimicrobial. The antimicrobial is integrally bonded to the back side of the backing. The present invention also provides for a method of reducing the number of microbes located upon a topical skin surface of a mammal, as well as a method of preventing the transmission of a communicable disease capable of being transmitted by physical contact. The methods include topically contacting a skin surface of the mammal with the back side of the topical adhesive patch.12-01-2011
20130195946INSECTICIDAL HYDROGEL FEEDING SPHERES - Unique spherically shaped insecticidal hydrogel feeding spheres are described comprising insecticide active, food source, optional adjuvant, water, and super-absorbent polymer. The large discrete spheres with diameters of about 2 mm to about 6 mm are made possible by the use of coarse dry granulated polyacrylamide/acrylates copolymer having particle size of from about 1 mm to about 4 mm. The insecticidal hydrogel bait spheres may be placed out in the environment to control insects without the need for a bait station enclosure. The present invention also comprises a method for producing the large discrete bait spheres.08-01-2013
20130195947BIOCIDE POWDER FORMULATION - A storage stable, free flowing powder concentrate for use in the manufacture of a biocide formulation comprises a t biocide containing an iodopropynyl group and an inert filler, wherein the wt % ratio of biocide: inert filler is from about 1:1 to about 1:100 and the wt % of biocide is not more than 50%.08-01-2013
20130202670BIOACTIVE ANTIBACTERIAL BONE GRAFT MATERIALS CONTAINING SILVER - The present invention generally relates to silver-containing bioactive antibacterial materials and composites that enhance bone growth while preventing surgical site infection. The present invention also relates to bioactive antibacterial materials and composites that include a bimodal bioactive glass particle size distribution. The bioactive antibacterial composite finds utility in a variety of clinical applications including spine and orthopaedic procedures.08-08-2013
20120087964HIGHLY WETTABLE, WATER DISPERSIBLE, GRANULES INCLUDING TWO PESTICIDES - The present disclosure relates to water dispersible granular pesticide compositions, and methods of making and using the compositions. The pesticide compositions include an inner layer including a first pesticide coated on to a substrate, and an outer layer comprising a second pesticide coated on the inner layer. The outer layer increases the water dispersibility of the granular composition, and protects the first pesticide against hydrolysis and photolysis.04-12-2012
