Covid-19 Emergency The New Filter Tested by San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, is Effective Against Sars-CoV-2 (Responsible of Covid-19)
After the tests on VOC, bacteria, spores, mold and allergens, NANOHUB patented a new filter (“KtV”) composed of a state-of-the-art photocatalytic reactor within which was placed an antibacterial and antiviral fabric filter. The components’ joint action allows to effectively sanitize the air.
The filter was tested on the Covid-19 infectious virus (SARS-CoV2) by the Viral Pathogenesis and Biosecurity Unit of San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, guided by Dr.Elisa Vicenzi.
TOTAL DEACTIVATION OF THE VIRUS IN 30 MINUTES ONLY – In the graph below the results of the viral title reduction are shown (expressed in plaque forming unit PFU/ml) calculated by counting test’s plaques by the San Raffaele Hospital – Viral Pathogenesis and Biosecurity Unit.
The data reveal that in 10 minutes the infectious viral level of SARS-CoV-2 was deactivated by 98%; in 20 minutes by over 99,8%. After 30 minutes of treatment the virus was definitely deactivated.
NANOHUB devices, through the implementation of the new patented filter guarantee the prosecution in the objectives of indoor air quality improvement and maintenance, equally ensuring the containment and slowdown of the SARS-CoV-2 transmission.
