WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - September 18, 2015) - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended routinely cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that are touched often, including items such as smartphones, tablets and keyboards. With the recent launch of Apple's innovative iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, many will be spending even more time on their devices, increasing the importance to keep them germ-free.

According to a United Nations' telecommunications agency, which keeps track of the rise and fall of various kinds of communications technology, there are almost as many cell phone subscriptions (6.8 billion) as there are people on the earth (7 billion). Clearly, cell phones have become the most-handled device in daily life. When kept in pockets, handbags and briefcases, they retain moisture and warmth, an ideal breeding ground for disease-causing germs, bacteria and viruses. In fact, the average cell phone can carry up to 10 times as many bacteria as a toilet seat.

Spectroline® CellBlaster®, the world's first universal cell phone sanitizer, utilizes high-intensity germicidal UV light to "blast away" germs, bacteria and viruses on virtually any hand-held device -- in just 30 seconds. As opposed to other competitors, CellBlaster's extra-large sanitizing chamber, measuring 6.5 x 4 x 1 inches (16.5 x 10.2 x 2.5 cm), accommodates all types of cell phones, including the newest, technologically advanced cell phones in the marketplace; iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. It also sanitizes iPods, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets, and earbuds, just to name a few more of the multitude of mobile devices around.

The CellBlaster® is easy to use. Just insert the cell phone into the unit and close the cover -- sanitizing begins automatically and finishes in only 30 seconds. The ultra-powerful germicidal UV tube and super-reflective scanning bed eliminates up to 99.9% of pathogens, including three strains of influenza -- H1N1, H3N2 and Influenza B, as well as Strep, Staph, E coli, Salmonella, Listeria and much more.
