Highlight is a patent-pending powdered additive developed by Kinnos that is mixed into disinfectants at point-of-use. Unlike current products, Highlight-enhanced disinfectants are colorized and highly visible, fully cover and stick to surfaces, and fade in color over time to prevent staining and to indicate to users when decontamination is complete. Used by the Fire Department of New York and a Winner of the USAID Fighting Ebola Grand Challenge, Highlight is cost effective, easy to use, and can be implemented around the world to save the lives of healthcare workers, first responders, and the general public.
