Clean schools, offices and elephants with Briotech


OOne of the truest signs of success is adaptability. If you can pivot in times of crisis, you will be able to adapt to all the changes and all the ups and downs that life throws at you, and an example of adaptability is by Briotech range of customized HOCl products. HOCl is ideal for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces in offices and schools, but it is also an electrolyzed, antimicrobial and biocidal solution that inactivates pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, spores and fungi, and for this reason, HOCl enables safe healing of wounds in hospitals, family homes and even in the remote jungles of Myanmar.

Cynthia Varela, co-founder of Briotech, explains that they have “received positive feedback from those who have used our BrioHOCl to nebulize and treat horse leg injuries, as well as those who have used it to treat stitches. and bad breath in dogs!But more recently, he helped an Asian elephant named Shwe Thaw recover from a traumatic leg injury to the point that he was finally able to walk again when fitted with a custom prosthesis .

Shwe Thaw had his hind leg amputated two years ago following a fight with another elephant. Since then, his caretakers had been battling persistent, non-healing wounds on the affected area. Due to the infection, Shwe Thaw was unable to walk, forcing him to remain tied up at a designated elephant camp.

“Dr. Moe Zaw, Medical Director of BriotechX, along with another associate from our Asia partnership, were hiking with their children when they came across the elephant camp to find Shwe Thaw tied up in an open barn. “says Dr. Eric Rasmussen, Briotech’s medical director. Officer. “They saw the wound, recognized that Briotech could help, and administered the first spray of BrioHOCl.”

“To move forward in the care of Shwe Thaw, our associates have arranged to provide the elephant camp with a supply of Briotech product to treat the wound for as long as needed and local carers, in turn, have agreed. to administer BrioHOCl saturation spray on a normal schedule. Although our partners appealed to an elephant sanctuary in Thailand for help, recent civil unrest in Myanmar forced the vets at the sanctuary to refuse, so Shwe Thaw’s only treatment was BrioHOCl.

Despite two years of previously unsuccessful efforts to heal the injury, Briotech succeeded. “Regular, daily spraying with BrioHOCl closed the wound within four months,” shares Rasmussen. “Shwe Thaw has now been fitted with his artificial leg, hosted by our partners BriotechX in Asia. His tethers have been removed and after two years of immobility and chronic pain, he is able to walk again.

Shwe Thaw’s prosthetic leg is the first of its kind in Myanmar and the camp’s experienced vet fashioned it himself from YouTube videos of a similar case in Thailand.

“This case, through a somewhat untraditional use of Briotech’s safe and effective formula, reminds me of something we’ve been verbalizing here at our company since day one, ‘Always happy to help’, and here we see this applies to all mammals, says Varela.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is produced naturally in the body’s white blood cells as part of our internal defense system which fights infections and pathogens, reduces inflammation and helps us heal. Briotech formulations, a pure biomimicry of natural HOCl, have achieved several scientific breakthroughs and are safely manufactured in EPA and FDA registered facilities.

“HOCl is touted to be 100 times more powerful than bleach when it comes to fighting bacteria,” the doctors at the The Cleveland Clinic Explains. “The best part, though? HOCl is non-toxic and handles that hard work while being incredibly gentle on your skin. This sweetness is a byproduct of being naturally produced by your body’s immune system. The buzz around hypochlorous acid (HOCl) has grown by leaps and bounds over the past year given its verified potency as a disinfectant against COVID-19.

For wound care, even extreme cases like Shwe Thaw, healing is not slowed by discomfort like with some medications. Instead of the sting of alcohol or the unpleasant fizz of peroxide, HOCl doesn’t bubble and sting and will not aggravate tissue damage at the site.
