University of Wisconsin Study Shows Reduction Begins Immediately
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Covid—CASPR Group today announced that its CASPR 1000 In-Duct disinfection technology kills 98 percent of SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces within six hours and 99.99 percent within 24 hours, according to a recent study conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Unlike disinfection processes that use an episodic ultraviolet (UV) light or harmful chemicals, CASPR’s technology uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) process to naturally extract oxygen and moisture from ambient air and then produce and continuously deliver trace levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to disinfect indoor spaces. The result is an automated and continuous reduction of air and surface viruses and bacteria in a way that is safe for use in spaces occupied with people and pets, and with no need to modify existing custodial processes.
“Our natural disinfection technology is designed to reduce the microburden levels in any given space, while that space can still be used safely at its intended operating capacity with human occupancy,” said Dr. Christophe Suchy, President and Chief Technical Officer of CASPR Group. “We’re excited that the University of Wisconsin study objectively shows that our technology can efficiently and effectively neutralize the virus that causes COVID-19.”
The CASPR 1000 is part of the CASPR Pro product line of HVAC in-duct solutions. Available in a variety of sizes, based on a target area’s square footage, all CASPR Pro line products offer the same output of hydrogen peroxide and can be expected to perform at the same optimal levels as outlined in the study. CASPR’s Medik and Compact+ solutions offer an even stronger output which reduces harmful pathogens quicker, and are ideal for high-traffic spaces or environments where higher amounts of contagions may exist. Like all CASPR products, the healthcare-grade technologies are safe for people, pets and plants.
CASPR’s technology is based on the Photocatalytic oxidation process released by NASA in 1967 and improved by Dr. Suchy for the healthcare industry. He was awarded the Innovation of Excellence from NASA in 2019 for his improvements on the technology, which is in use today in CASPR’s products.
