Demo Day #7 - Briotech

There is a molecule that your body uses to fight infection and to promote healing. It's the same molecule used by your cat or dog, by every bird, fish, and insect. It's been around for hundreds of millions of years, 100 times more potent than bleach, but safe enough to spray in your eye, to breath as a fog, or to drink. The molecule is HOCL, a.k.a. hypochlorous acid. The problem has been that HOCL is unstable. It breaks down in your body seconds after its created by your white blood cells. The same happens when it's made bedside in hospitals to fight infection. Dan Terry, co-founder/CEO of Briotech explains how he developed a process for making HOCL stable. Stable when frozen. Stable when misted. Stable in a bottle for years.

Bees make great fences to keep the wild elephants off of farmland, and there are more elephants in Botswana than any other country in Africa.
