PathogenX Sees Spike in Interest in PX2 Medical Waste Sterilization Technology Due to CARES Act

CARMEL, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Carmel-based PathogenX, a medical device company that develops, manufactures, and distributes proprietary technology designed to dramatically simplify the process of medical waste disposal, has seen a mounting spike in interest in its PX2 technology, thanks in large part to funding from CARES Act grants enabling qualified medical facilities to obtain the systems with government grant support.

PathogenX’s PX2 is a stand-alone, double-batch on-site sterilization device that safely and efficiently renders regulated medical sharps and red bag waste completely sterile, unrecognizable and non-reusable in compliance with all federal EPA, CDC and OSHA standards and guidelines. An easy-to-use, table-top device about the size of a computer printer, each PX2 system is capable of processing up to 10 gallons of medical waste per day.

The CARES Act provides nearly $10 billion to approximately 50,000 healthcare facilities to support infection control protocols and systems in response to COVID-19. Eligible for

At 10, Cardenas, newly insured through his mom’s commercial health plan after she got a job on the assembly line at Alcon Laboratories, took his first trip to a pediatrician’s office. While he stared at the aquarium and toys, his mom took out her purse to buy coffee from the lobby setup, not knowing it was free.

In trying to figure out why major oil and gas companies operating in the U.S. seem to be more interested in controlling their emissions of methane than are the federal agencies that are supposed to be regulating them, it helps to remember the old journalism maxim – follow the money.

The EPA under President Trump recently rolled back Obama-era rules to require oil and gas companies to track and limit the volumes of the potent greenhouse gas they pumped into the atmosphere. While many small to midsized independent operators hailed the regulatory rollback, in general the integrated international companies such as ExxonMobil
