In today’s fast-paced world, where health and safety are paramount concerns, it’s crucial to ensure clean and safe workspaces. ActivePure Technology, an innovative infection prevention technology company, has been making headlines with groundbreaking research and real-world applications that emphasize the importance of clean air in healthcare and other environments.
Stopping the Deadly Candida Auris
ActivePure Technology recently conducted specific testing on the drug-resistant fungus Candida auris (C. auris) and achieved remarkable results. This strain of fungus has been rapidly spreading in healthcare facilities across the United States, posing a serious threat. ActivePure’s testing, conducted by a third-party unaffiliated lab, demonstrated a 99.99% reduction rate in C. auris on surfaces within just 48 hours. This breakthrough offers hope in the fight against this deadly pathogen, which can colonize surfaces for up to 28 days.
C. auris is evolving and developing resistance against typical surface disinfectants, making it essential to adopt new infection prevention strategies like ActivePure. Deborah Birx, chief medical and science advisor of ActivePure, emphasizes the urgency of this situation, particularly for immunosuppressed or immunocompromised patients.
Combatting MRSA Superbug in Hospital Infections
In another groundbreaking study, ActivePure’s continuous, whole-department disinfection technology demonstrated impressive results in combatting Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in a medical-surgical ICU. The study reported a statistically significant 100% decrease in Healthcare-Onset MRSA (HO-MRSA) bacteremia infections, effectively eliminating them during the trial period. Additionally, the use of ActivePure’s Advanced Photocatalysis technology resulted in a remarkable 98% reduction in MRSA surface burden.
This study, published in the Open Forum Infectious Diseases, showcases how ActivePure’s technology can revolutionize infection prevention in healthcare settings. Lori Berthelot, RN, BSN, CIC, study co-author, highlights the importance of improving the environment of care, especially during times of pandemics and labor shortages.
Why Clean Air Matters
These studies underscore the critical importance of clean air and surfaces in healthcare settings and beyond. Traditional infection prevention strategies can be hindered by various challenges, including staffing issues and recontamination between cleanings. Unlike other technologies like UV, ActivePure can be used in occupied spaces, operates continuously, and can potentially reduce labor demands.
As we continue to navigate the challenges of the modern world, clean air and surfaces are not just a luxury; they are a necessity for the health and safety of all. ActivePure’s innovative technology offers a proactive solution to minimize airborne and surface pathogens, providing a safer environment for healthcare workers and patients alike.
Clean air and surfaces are essential for the well-being of everyone, especially in healthcare settings. ActivePure Technology’s groundbreaking research and real-world applications highlight the importance of adopting innovative infection prevention strategies to combat emerging threats like Candida auris and MRSA among other serious pathogens.
