In recent months a new antiseptic solution has appeared on the market under the name of Perm-Aseptic-Ramplex. The product is sold as Perm-Aseptic for promotional purposes and as Ramplex for industrial purposes. The product is distributed by the Perm-Aseptic Process Company, New York City. The company advertises the new chemical as a fluid of highly concentrated power which combines the properties of germicide, bactericide and fungicide. According to the company's claims its purpose is to make textiles actively antiseptic as a protection to persons and as a prevention of destruction of textiles by bacteria, germs, mold and mildew.

Bacteriologic tests have been made by Foster D. Snell, Inc., and by the United States Testing Company, Inc. The zone of inhibition is claimed to be 3 to 6 mm. and to conform with the standard for laboratory tests as established by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States government.
