Laboratory Test Summary of ABC Research Reports
ABC Research Corporation of Gainesville, FL was enlisted to test our patent-pending machines against a number of diseases and molds. The results and procedures of those tests are provided in full in the links below.
There was progressive inactivation efficacy with increasing exposure times to our treatment. For dry bacteria there was at least a one log unit (or >90%) reduction evidenced for all treatment times. For bacteria in a wet environment, there was at least a one log unit (or >90%) reduction observed after 60 min. or more of treatment. The 8 hour treatment was extremely effective for all bacteria in a dry or wet environment. There was no surviving bacteria of any type detected after the 8 hr. treatment in dry or wet environments with reductions ranging from > 7.74 to >8.94 log-units in the wet environment. The was no surviving Stachybotrys chartarum detected in a wet environment after the 30 and 60 min. treatments with a >4.45 log unit reduction observed.
The test of Bacillus atrophaeus, which is used as a surrogate for Bacillus anthracis (anthrax), showed a 99.996, 99.98, 99.59, and 99.13% reduction on various office supplies inoculated with the bacteria.
The test of E. coli given an eight hour treatment yielded a greater than 99.997% reduction on dry surface and a reduction of greater than 99.9999998% on wet surface.
The test of Salmonella typhimurium given an eight hour treatment yielded a greater than 99.99993% reduction on dry surface and a reduction of greater than 99.9999999% on wet surface.
The test of Listeria monocytogenes given an eight hour treatment yielded a greater than 99.9994% reduction on dry surface and a reduction of greater than 99.9999998% on wet surface.
The test of Staphylococcus aureus given an eight hour treatment yielded a greater than 99.999996% reduction on dry surface and a reduction of greater than 99.9999999% on wet surface.
The test of Streptococcus pyogenes given an eight hour treatment yielded a greater than 99.9996% reduction on dry surface and a reduction of greater than 99.999998% on wet surface.
The test of Stachybotrys chartarum (black mold) given a 60 minute treatment yielded a greater than 99.996% reduction on wet surface.
Villanova University Food Service
Uncontrollable odors and bacteria in food service preparation.
Villlanova purchased a generator from the manufacturer following a trade show visit. "We have experienced mold problems in many of our refrigerators on campus, including off odors for years, not being able to eliminate the problem. The manufacturer claimed to be able to eliminate our problems with one treatment. They came on site and in two hours, solved our problems in one of our boxes.
The alternatives had already been explored and were not effective. We did not pursue other treatment generators for comparison. It is my understanding that there are not competitors in this market...based on the reactions of my staff, I would consider using an outside contractor to come on campus to perform the treatment services.
I think this is a product and service ahead of its time and very much needed. Operators are not aware of the effectiveness. You are on the cusp of a major breakthrough, in my opinion. I would recommend...their breakthrough product."

Osceola Health Department
15,000 square foot facility located in Kissimmee , Florida
Complaints at the County Health Department from employees suffering from respiratory illnesses. An independent laboratory confirmed high levels of bacteria present.
The manufacturer of our patent-pending process was called in to perform a treatment for air purification and bacteria removal. High levels of toxic contaminants were found prior to treatment.
Lab results showed a 100% reduction in toxic contaminates and an 83% reduction in normal floral contaminants. The facility was contacted in December, 2005, one year after the treatment was completed. No new complaints had been filed since treatment.
Additional Case Studies will be published soon!
