• Shipment contains enough IV-7 water purifier to create 40 million gallons of drinkable water

SAN DIEGO, CA, Jan. 25, 2010 -- PURE Bioscience is sending 200,000 two-ounce bottles of IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense™ silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC)-based water purifier to Project Hope for distribution in earthquake-ravaged areas of Haiti. This quantity is enough to treat up to 40 million gallons of water. San Diego-based CareFusion Corporation sponsored half of the donation.

"The earthquake victims in Haiti are in desperate need of water that is safe to drink. Sending 200,000 bottles of water purifier to be distributed in areas hard hit by the earthquake will help ensure drinkable water for families until local water systems can be restored."

The water purifier is in the form of a liquid concentrate, with just six drops needed to treat one gallon of water. This convenient and portable solution can be rushed to areas of need more quickly and easily than containers of drinking water.

The purifier is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, virus and fungus in a stable, non-toxic, tasteless, odorless and colorless solution.

Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, said, "The earthquake victims in Haiti are in desperate need of water that is safe to drink. Sending 200,000 bottles of water purifier to be distributed in areas hard hit by the earthquake will help ensure drinkable water for families until local water systems can be restored."
