Nature Tech Solutions Offers Another Solution For Relief From The Flu


Roman Fyk of Nature Tech Solutions Inc. urged the American public to “get their flu shot” as soon as possible before they join the thousands of Americans with the flu.

Mr. Fyk, president, of the company based in Lancaster, Pa., released information concerning his new GEN-X-3 technology that manufactures a proven solution to eradicate the flu and many other debilitating viruses and bacteria.

The GEN-X-3 machine produces hypochlorous acid (HOCI) which is also produced by the human immune system to kill bacteria and viruses.  Mr. Fyk agrees that everyone must receive their flu shots, but to also consider adding his GEN-X-3 technology to their defense against the H3N2 flu that is now an epidemic throughout the United States.

When the solution of 100-percent safe Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) Anolyte was tested by Penn State University, the same solution produced by the GEN-X-3 killed the current devastating flu virus, H3N2, 100 percent in less than a minute.  The GEN-X-3 produced solution also killed many other bacteria that threaten our food supply, health and much more.

The H3N2 flu is a strain of a Norovirus which also was treated by the GEN-X-3 for proof of effectiveness and had a kill rate of 99.999 according to the test studies by the Microbiotest Laboratories in Sterling, Va.

The GEN-X-3 is now available to the public.  The GEN-X-3 uses regular tap water, electric and a food-based additive to create hypochlorous acid.  This solution is non-hazardous and safe for human contact.  It can be used in the home, office, nursing home, hospital or classroom to sanitize and disinfect.  Just spray and let dry.  The solution can also be used in a cold fogger or cold sonic vaporizer in occupied rooms to mitigate the viruses and bacteria.

The GEN-X-3 does more than just kill H3N2 and other avian viruses. It also kills a host of deadly foodborne pathogens as well, including (but not limited to) salmonella, e-coli, listeria, VRE, shingella, MSRA, anthrax, and many more. The solution is safe to use on food and food prep areas to greatly diminish cross contamination during food preparation.

Nature Tech Solutions (NTS) manufactures and distributes a variety of machines to self-generate the world’s strongest chemical-free sanitizing/disinfecting/cleaning solution on-site, on demand.  The most popular, GEN-X-3, is for multi-purpose use to clean and purify both your home and office.  The GEN-X-3 is the economical handheld model (a rechargeable mini-generator) that is all natural and safe for children, adults, and pets.  Nature Tech Solutions has a solution for any size industry, school or hospital.

Triggers Gun Auction Sells, Is Looking For Quality Firearms

Triggers Gun Auction sells firearms from estates and private sellers to a nationwide audience of pre-qualified gun buyers. As a Federally licensed firearms auction house, we can manage the sale and disposition of auction items from receipt of consignment all the way through to delivery.

Our public sales on the nation’s largest live and timed auction network ( effectively eliminates nuisance bidding (bidding without the intent to purchase), and the burden of wading through thousands of auto-relisted, initial-high-price items.


The majority of our auctions are absolute. But whenever an item of distinction merits reserve pricing, we always start at the reserve. Our monthly schedule of new auctions is designed to keep things interesting for buyers, and speed things along for our sellers (many of whom are trying to close estates).

Consignments Wanted

We are always looking for quality firearms, and firearms-related items to represent at auction. Our team is equipped to sell entire collections or individual items, and we work equally hard for estates and private collectors to maximize profit.

If you or someone you know has antique or modern firearms, or firearms related items to sell, we would appreciate an opportunity to provide a FREE estimate of auction value and discuss seller consignment terms. We’ve created a convenient online evaluation request form to make contacting us easy.

Lopi Introduces the GreenStart Wood Stove Igniter

Starting your wood stove has never been easier, as Lopi has revolutionized the way consumers today start wood fires. Much like Charles Kettering’s invention of the electric automobile ignition 100 years ago, the GreenStart igniter system has evolved the ignition of fire in a spectacular way and has become the greatest innovation in wood heating in over 100 years.

Starting a fire in your wood stove is now as convenient as pushing a button. No longer is the mess of starting a fire with matches and newspapers a concern, as it has been eliminated entirely by this breakthrough new igniter system. Fireplace safety has increased, and there is no longer a need to leave doors ajar to promote the fire start up.

The GreenStart system works much like a blacksmith bellows. A compressor forces 1,400 degree preheated air into the firebox directly onto the wood source, giving a clean, fast, smoke-free start up. This combination of the igniter and bellows is the brilliance of this design exclusively patented by Lopi manufacturer Travis Industries. This system is also ideal for refreshing old fires. Simply add new fuel on top of the old coals, close the door and push the button again. The new GreenStart system instantly elevates combustion temperatures within your stove, immediately establishes a draft, and eliminates the slow and smoky typical wood fireplace start up. The GreenStart Igniter system will start wood burning within two button pushes. After the initial start up, the blower will continue pumping air into the fire, greatly accelerating the start up time. After 15 minutes the blower shuts off. For best results, dry, seasoned wood is required when using the GreenStart system.

The GreenStart ignition option is available on select Lopi wood stoves and wood burning fireplace inserts, and retails for a suggested MSRP of $349. Never before has starting a fire in a wood stove or insert been so simple. Come see the revolutionary GreenStart system in action in our showroom. Visit to find a location near you.
