Microbe(s): SARS-CoV-2, COVID 19
ECOLOXTECH systems were used to generate a 130 ppm electrolyzed water solution of hypochlorous acid. A greater than 4-log reduction or complete kill was obtained on all 3 replicates studied after a 5 minute contact time. This test was performed in order to substantiate virucidal efficacy claims for a test substance to be labeled as a virucide by determining the potential of the test substance to disinfect hard surfaces contaminated with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-related Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (COVID-19 Virus). This test was designed to simulate consumer and was performed in conformance to EPA OCSPP 810.2000 (2018) and 810.2200 (2018) Product Performance Test Guidelines.
The Potential Use of Hypochlorous Acid and a Smart Prefabricated Sanitising Chamber to Reduce Occupation-Related COVID-19 Exposure
Microbe(s): SARS-CoV-2, Sanitiser, occupational health, cross-contamination, healthcare management
This work is part of a project on the development of a smart prefabricated sanitising chamber (SPSC) to provide extra measures against the transmission of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Stabilised hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is an approved disinfectant against SARS-CoV-2 by the Environmental Protection Association US in its liquid form on non-porous surfaces.
