FERGUS FALLS, Minnesota--MRLB International, Inc. has announced that the DentaPure DP-40 Microbiological Purification Cartridge has become the first continuous-use water treatment product to be registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and all 50 State EPAs.
Registration has also been completed for Puerto Rico. The DP-40 device is installed in the bottle of independent water systems, where it addresses dental unit waterline contamination by reducing harmful bacteria and assuring water meets biological quality standards.
Barry Hammarback, president and CEO of MRLB International said: "We are delighted that the DentaPure DP-40 has become the first continuous-use water treatment product to be registered with the EPA in all fifty states. Registration of the DP-40 in the State of California will be particularly helpful to those dentists in California who had been attempting to meet the recommended water quality standards, but had no continuous-use registered anti-microbial products available to them."
DentaPure water purification products are registered with the US Food and Drug Administration as Class I medical devices for attachment to dental units. DentaPure microbiological water purification cartridges can be retrofitted to all existing dental units.
They provide water that contains fewer than 200 colony-forming units per milliliter, an amount that meets all standards and recommendations for dental unit water quality.
DentaPure microbiological water purification cartridges are available through most dealers. The recommended retail price for the DentaPure DP-40 is $79.95.
