As the current CEO of sBioMed, LLC, Steve MacMillan is incredibly excited about the release of his company’s newest product, which is called Steriplex SD. This amazing disinfectant has proven incredibly effective at killing deadly infectious pathogens in the hospital environment.
The importance of Steriplex SD
Shockingly enough, more than 90,000 unnecessary deaths occur in the United States every year as a result of healthcare-related illnesses. Unfortunately, many individuals walk into hospitals in hopes of receiving lifesaving treatments only to contract deadly diseases from hospital equipment or exposure to other contagious individuals. The invention of Steriplex SD is expected to make hospitals much safer in the near future.
Steriplex is environmentally friendly
Although strong disinfectants are essential for keeping patients from contracting deadly infections in the hospital setting, many commercial sanitizing products are not very safe for the environment. Thankfully, Steriplex SD is incredibly eco-friendly. In addition, this amazing product is also much less toxic than ordinary disinfectants, making it ideal for use in close quarters.
The future of treating super bugs
Up until recently, all attempts to stop the development and spread of super bugs such as C. diff have proven very unsuccessful. Unfortunately, these types of viruses are incredibly contagious and resistant to many standard disinfectants. Amazingly, Steriplex SD may hold the key to preventing massive outbreaks of C. diff and other super bugs in the near future.
As the current CEO of sBioMed, LLC, Stephen is very excited about the recent release of the new disinfectant Steriplex SD, and he is sure to continue leading his company to great success. Additionally, he is helping to mentor other emerging device companies through Stephen MacMillan's participation as a board member at Domain Surgical LLC and EZ Lift LLC, as well as serving on the board of Alere, one of the world’s largest and leading diagnostics companies.
