YPB Group (YPB) has launched a patent application in China for one of its disinfectant inventions.

The invention essentially works by adding luminescent tracer to disinfectant, allowing the user to see if an area has been cleaned.

The product authentication business said it also allows the user to tell when an area has been disinfected and whether or not re-sterilisation is needed.

“The invention is universal in nature and when combined with conventionally used disinfection solutions, can quickly determine whether daily disinfection is in place, disinfection time and the need for any re-sterilisation,” the group stated.

YPB filed the patent application with China’s relevant regulatory authority on December 31, 2020.

It hasn’t stated when it expects the application to be processed, however, the company will provide an update to shareholders as it progresses.

Shares in YPB Group are trading up 25 per cent in response to the patent announcement, trading at 0.3 cents each at the close of market on Monday.
