After 60 minutes, airborne microorganisms are undetectable in the air
The Objective of the experiments was to determine the efficacy of the device in terms of its ability to reduce concentration of viable microorganism in the air in a test enclosure and then also on surfaces
99.6% , 99.5% , 99.9% reduction for C.difficle, S.Aureus and E.coli
The Objective of the experiments was to determine the efficacy of the device in terms of its ability to reduce concentration of viable microorganism on stainless steel surfaces.
East Of England Ambulance service regarding absenteeism in their call centre
Saving over £200,000 in 9 months
Brief summary of data supplied by East Of England Ambulance service regarding absenteeism in their call centre before and after installation of Airsteril Multiflex units.
AIRsteril units were installed at the end of September 2018, the below shows absenteeism data month by month from the previous calendar year with any differences recorded. We have requested additional data on the type of illness, specifically respiratory conditions, and definitions of long term/short term, but as shown there is a clear drop in absenteeism with AIRsteril.
Total Sick % Oct-17 to Feb-18 has an average of 12.85% and Oct-18 to Feb-19 has an average of 5.91%, so a reduction of 54% in total sickness.
Air Steril, Rhinovirus and MRSA
98.11% bacteria reduction
All laboratory tests were conducted at the Health Protection Agency (HPA) ‘Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response’ in the bio-safety laboratories.
Airborne testing at the HPA demonstrated 98.11% bacteria reduction and 92.17% reduction in the standard viral surrogate* after only 5 minutes.
Endoscopy Disinfection Unit
After a few hours: "a feeling of clean fresh air, no eye or breathing irritation, no headaches, altogether a nicer place to work..."
In the Endoscopy Disinfection units at Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, a problem with air quality has persisted.
As the AER (Automatic Endoscopy Reprocessor) doors opened and closed throughout the day, peracetic acid (used as disinfectant for the endoscopes) vapour levels increased cumulatively within the unit.
This caused some discomfort for AER operators. Peracetic acid vapour can be irritating to the eyes, mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, and skin in humans after exposure to concentrations as low as 15.6 mg peracetic acid/m3 (5 parts per million) for only 3 min.
