Aerte has announced the launch of a revolutionary air disinfection unit, the AD 2.0, designed to eliminate airborne Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI) from clinical settings.
The unit is designed with a consumable cartridge containing a reagent, which generates hydroxyl ‘free radicals’ that neutralise dangerous bacteria and viruses.
“Over the last 10-years we have made enormous strides in tackling the spread and prevalence of HCAIs,” said Professor Hugh Pennington, Emeritus Professor of Bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen.
“However, whilst large scale operations and protocols are now in place to ensure the cleanliness of a hospital’s clinical surfaces, no universal strategy has been trialed for the air – leaving it as the last major source of transmission.
“By using products that eliminate airborne pathogens we will then have a complete solution where all possible causes of transmission have been addressed.”
