Aerobiology Laboratory Associates, Inc. out of Golden, Colorado conducted environmental testing swab analysis on the FirstResponder® Sterilizer. Aerobiology Laboratory Associates has the following credentials:
|Read swab using Luminometer|
|Perform 1 hour ozone sterilization cycle with FirstResponder® Sterilizer|
|Swab same but adjacent area and read again using Luminometer|
In-house testing using the Bio Reveal system SURE II™ ATP bioluminescence luminometer and Hygiena Ultrasnap™ swabs. As shown in Table 1 below, the highest Luminometer reading was 4,705 RLUs prior to FirstResponder® Sterilizer treatment, yet a reading over 30 is considered “surface contaminated” according to manufacturer.
Post-treatment Luminometer readings were taken after FirstResponder® Sterilizer one hour treatment and readings show a dramatic reduction or elimination of surface contaminant as in Table 1 below (all readings were done in triplicate to insure accuracy):
|Location||Pre-treatment *||Post-treatment *|
|Biohazard Container Top||4,705||18|
|Floor (rear, right entry)||247||0|
|Blood Pressure Cuff||216||5|
|Driver Steering Wheel||24||0|
Via a certified environmental consulting expert and a third party independent testing laboratory (Aerobiology Laboratory Associates, Inc., Golden, Colorado).
Graph and table 2 below show the elimination or dramatic reduction in species-specific bacterial contaminants. Samples were taken from 12 discreet locations inside an ambulance and immediately sent on ice to testing laboratory.
