BOULDER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2023 / Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNOA), a global healthcare leader developing and producing patented Microcyn® technology based stabilized hypochlorous acid (HOCl) products for a wide range of applications, including dermatology, eye, oral and nasal care, and wound care, today announced that Microcyn® Rx products have received a Distribution and Pricing Agreement (DAPA) for distribution by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

The DAPA enables our partner, EMC Pharma, to enter into distribution agreements for Microcyn® Rx products with federal customers. The U.S. government is the world's largest purchaser of good and services. Approximately half of EMC Pharma's customers are U.S. government entities, including VA hospitals, the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, as well as state and local prison systems. EMC Pharma is a 100% minority-owned and a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE).

The DAPA approval process was a coordinated effort by Sonoma and EMC Pharma and resulted in obtaining DAPA # SP0200-22-H-0034 for Sonoma's Microcyn Rx products including wound care, prescription dermatology products, Celacyn® and Levicyn®, and prescription eye care Acuicyn®.

"This is a major step that will allow us to sell Microcyn technology products into the federal supply chain. We have already seen interest from federal networks for these products and are excited to use our experience working with federal customers to distribute Microcyn," said Eric Bailey, CEO and President of EMC Pharma.

"We are proud to work with partners like EMC who have built a substantial business selling into the numerous departments of the U.S. government, and we are excited to introduce the efficacy and safety of our Microcyn technology products to these federal customers," said Amy Trombly, CEO of Sonoma. She continued, "sales to the U.S government through EMC Pharma represent a new distribution channel for Sonoma increasing the range of customers and regions we sell to."
