SINTX Technologies Announces SARS-CoV-2 Testing Results
SALT LAKE CITY, UT, June 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - SINTX Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SINT) (“SINTX” or the “Company”), an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) ceramics company focused on silicon nitride and its applications, today announced that in a controlled laboratory study, the SARS-CoV-2 virus was inactivated when exposed to SINTX’s sintered silicon nitride powder. The Company expects to share additional data soon, once the findings are published in a rapid-review forum.
“The preliminary results are encouraging,” said Dr. Sonny Bal, CEO of SINTX. “The antiviral data are consistent with the well-established anti-bacterial properties of SINTX’s silicon nitride, and with previously reported effectiveness against several single-strand RNA viruses.

No representations are made as to the effectiveness of silicon nitride in consumer products, whether medical or otherwise.
