Startup Granted EPA Registration for Disinfectant System
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted Sterifre Medical, Inc. registration to begin commercial deployment of the company’s AURA system, a novel, automated device disinfectant system, which could help combat COVID-19 and other pathogens in health care settings.
The company is a graduate of Cornell’s Kevin M. McGovern Family Center for Venture Development in the Life Sciences incubator program, and its system was co-invented by Czeslaw Golkowski, Ph.D ’91, a former Cornell research associate.
“We’re proud that the McGovern Center has had a hand in Sterifre’s development,” says Emmanuel Giannelis, vice president for research and innovation at Cornell. “Sterifre’s success demonstrates the strong entrepreneurial engine on our campus. Bringing the potential benefits of research innovations like the AURA system to a broad audience requires mentorship to develop a solid business foundation.”
