Independent trials conducted by Campden BRI have confirmed that the HyGenikx air and surface sanitisation system from UK manufacturer Mechline Developments is effective at removing airborne coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2 that causes Covid-19.
The results of the trials proved that HyGenikx removed up to 99.99 per cent of an airborne Covid-19 surrogate in under three hours.
“Trials were conducted within the Campden BRI aerobiology laboratory to determine the efficacy of HyGenikx towards airborne Phi6 - a recognised SARS-CoV-2 surrogate,” said Nick Falco, product and technical director at Mechline.
“Phi6 was nebulised into an aerobiology test chamber to represent heavily contaminated air. Air samples were then taken every 20 minutes for a period of three hours, to determine levels of Phi6,” he added.
These results back up the real-life experience of our customers including Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL, owner of Café Spice Namasté, who said: “I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend HyGenikx to other foodservice or hospitality businesses as it is the ideal complement to manual cleaning. It helps to protect customers and staff, whilst extending the shelf life of fresh produce.”
As we move into the winter months it is essential to the whole economy that we keep the doors of business open.
Unfortunately, physically keeping the doors and windows open is not so great when it comes to customer comfort and sustainability.
Indoor air quality, however, is a primary driver when it comes to the transmission of coronavirus between people.
As a tried and tested technology, HyGenikx has a huge role to play in controlling infections - in fact HyGenikx is the most rigorously tested unit of its type on the market.
