Our AIRsteril products and their efficacy have been tested by a variety of reputable laboratories in the UK and internationally for both airborne and surface microbial control, independent field testing has also demonstrated product performance in both the elimination of odours and reduction of microorganisms.
Tests have demonstrated clear reductions in overall bio-aerosols and microbial levels with clear reductions in TVC (Total Viable Count) or CFU (Colony Forming Units), additional independent testing performed on differing varieties of bacteria, virus, mould and Fungi demonstrate the efficacy against the most prevalent of these including Listeria, E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermis, Aspergillus Fumigatus, MS-2 Coliphage, MRSA (Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) and Clostridium difficile.
Detailed relevant test data available upon request.
TVC/CFU – over 99% reduction after 4 hours, up to 99.77% after 12 hours, surface;
Listeria – decrease to 0 log cfu/cm2 within 24 hours, beyond detectable levels by day 3 (Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria innocua)
E. coli – airborne; decrease beyond detectable levels after an hour, surface; up to 99.9% reduction
Staphylococcus epidermis – up to 98.11% airborne reduction within 5 minutes
Staphylococcus aureus – airborne; decrease beyond detectable levels after an hour, surface; up to 99.5% reduction
Clostridium difficile – up to 99.6% surface reduction
Aspergillus Fumigatus - airborne decrease beyond detectable levels after an hour
MS-2 Coliphage - up to 92.17% airborne reduction within 5 minutes, up to 59.47% surface reduction within an hour
MRSA - up to 51.81% surface reduction within an hour
“This was another reason we elected to go with AIRsteril; chemical fogging makes the atmosphere damp which gave us a problem with our electrics. It also requires a complete plant shutdown and staff out of the facility and production downtime costs money”, said Stephen’s Gary Luff. “Not to mention the £1,000 per week we were spending on swab testing. Because AIRsteril works 24 hours a day it is constantly killing both airborne and surface bacteria. We consistently found massive reductions in TVC and were able to scale back the testing and saved on those costs as well.”
The technology was endorsed 100% by both the Stephen’s Fresh Foods Technical Team and their Directors.
"The UK banking centre at Canary Wharf is populated with modern skyscrapers featuring the latest in office building technology. The Credit Suisse UK HeadQuarters allows staff to make the most of windows which has meant that the main building services are sited in the middle of the building. As such with long air ducting, their luxury washrooms struggle to maintain air quality and a clean, fresh smelling work place.
They have installed AIRsteril for odour and infection control in their washrooms. Convinced that the bacteria and viruses that cause infections are killed by AIRsteril, the new offices will feature MF units to ensure staff absenteeism is kept to a minimum."
"On a Test Match day at Lord's there are 25,000 people, mostly males, spending all day watching cricket and drinking. With several visits per person during the day the gents toilets can have up to a 10,000 footfall a day. The staff have had difficulty in clearing the resulting odours. The stainless steel trough urinals in some of the washrooms create added problems.
Just in time for a major Test Match, AIRsteril WRX trial units were installed in two of the major washrooms. After just a few hours, the units had managed to get on top of the smell, then controlled the odours throughout the 5 day match. The facilities staff are very pleased and plan to increase the number of installations before the start of the next cricket season."
