The use of Sanuvox high-intensity ultraviolet germicidal systems can control the transmission of the airborne influenza virus preventing cross-contamination of building occupants and co-workers.
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Sanuvox Technologies has been receiving inquiries following the recent swine influenza (H1N1 virus) outbreak in Mexico, United States, and Canada as well as in other parts of the world. Sanuvox UV Air Sterilization Systems are designed to destroy airborne biological contaminants including swine influenza.
Sanuvox wants to inform the public on the ability of Sanuvox Ultraviolet Air Sterilization Systems to destroy the influenza virus including those that fall into the family of Orthomyxoviridae. These include type A, type B and type C influenza viruses. The World Health Organization has confirmed that these cases are a never-before-seen version of the H1N1 strain of the influenza type A virus.
Using proprietary UV technology, the Sanuvox In-Duct Ultraviolet Air Sterilization System is designed to maximize exposure time between the air and the UV germicidal energy. The UV system delivers the optimal UV dosage penetrating the cell membrane destroying the DNA structure of the virus.
The Sanuvox UV Bio-Wall In-Duct Air Sterilizer has been tested by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) against biological warfare agents. Installed into the ventilation system, the Sanuvox UV Air Sterilization unit achieved on a single pass with no recirculation >99.97% destruction on S. marcescens bacteria, 99% destruction on the MS2 virus and 93% destruction on B. atrophaeus bacterial spore.
McGill University in Montreal Canada has tested the Sanuvox portable / stand-alone UV Air Sterilization unit the P900GX against tuberculosis, and achieved a destruction rate of 90% while operating in the sputum induction room of the Montreal Chest Hospital.
Sanuvox testing which has been completed by the US EPA, NHSRC and McGill University on bio-contaminants which require up to ten times (10X) the dosage of UV energy to destroy in comparison to the weaker influenza virus.
According to Dr. Normand Brais, President of Sanuvox Technologies Inc. "The use of Sanuvox high-intensity ultraviolet germicidal systems can control the transmission of the airborne influenza virus preventing cross-contamination of building occupants and co-workers." Dr. Brais goes onto say, "Sanuvox UV systems are specifically designed to maximize exposure time between the UV energy and the airborne contaminants in order to deliver the necessary UV intensity to effectively disinfect the indoor air."
