Reduction Of MRSA Populations And Aeroallergens On Using AHPCOŽ And Plasma Nanotechnology For Air Purification
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA has become a serious public health issue. We implemented an air purification system using a hybrid AHPCOŽ and Plasma Nanotechnology that reduced the indoor particulate matters including all forms of aeroallergen.In this study, the efficiency of Air Oasis air purifiers such as the Xtreme 3000 air purifier, Wall-Mount and the InductACT air purifiers were evaluated in the Microbiology and Mycologylaboratories of the Baptist Saint Anthonys Hospital (BSA) in Amarillo, Texas. This department processes around 85,000 bacterial and fungal cultures per calendar year, and the staff also performs various types of serological testing for bacterial pathogens and routine parasitological examinations on various types of clinical specimens. We evaluated the efficiency of the net reduction of bacteria in a negative pressure laboratory and the specific effect on isolates identified as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The air purification system with novel AHPCOŽand Plasma nanotechnology reduced the concentration of MRSA, Fungi and the other indoor particulate matters gradually with varied time intervals.
