recent enhancements in both cycle development and distribution strength", said

3M(TM) Infection Prevention Division, for the exclusive supply and
distribution of its new generation sterilizer through 3M's worldwide
operations under the 3M(TM) brand, as regulatory clearances are received.
	    Also in December 2009, TSO3 filed for regulatory clearances on the new
generation product in Canada, Europe and the United States. TSO3 has now
