airPHX Validates Technology for Eliminating Pathogens on Surfaces in Health Care Facilities

By , in PR PR Health on .

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 14, 2017 — airPHX (“air fix”) announces independent research confirming the effectiveness of airPHX technology in eliminating three common healthcare-associated infection (HAI) pathogens.  The research, conducted by Rick Falkenberg, Ph.D with Scientific Air Solutions and published September 13, 2017, demonstrates over 4-log reductions in 30 minutes of treatment in bacterial populations of Clostridium difficile, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (mRSA) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa on three common contact surfaces: stainless steel, plastic (PVC) and linoleum (floor tile).  Each bacterial population exhibited in excess of 5-log reductions in organisms in 2 hours of treatment.  The research can be reviewed at https://www.airPHXhealth.com/blog

Antimicrobial resistant pathogens pose an ongoing challenge to hospitals because they cause HAIs during clinical treatment of patients. Existing methods to address this challenge include sanitizers/disinfectants and deployment of UV-C technology. Both solutions have limitations and neither solution provides ongoing protection between treatments.

airPHX technology operates continuously in the background as a prophylaxis with no labor costs and minimal operating expenses.  airPHX uses a proprietary atmospheric cold plasma technology to create and distribute a low-level, unique spectrum of reactive oxygen species (ROS).  The ROS operate as an oxidizer of pathogens in a treatment space, persistently eliminating airborne and surface pathogens in the air and on all surfaces exposed to ambient air. 

According to Dr. Falkenberg: “the technology developed by airPHX has a wide range of applications due to its ability to produce a highly oxidative environment within a reaction chamber and discharge molecules that have an oxidizing capacity at levels that are safe for human exposure into the environment.”  

airPHX technology has previously been commercialized for large facilities in food safety applications. Adapting the technology for the health care industry was a natural progression.  Deployed in hospitals, medical device storage, senior care, athletic facilities and other health facilities, airPHX technology provides immediate and continuing infection control at low capital and operating costs.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
