SJC Industries Corp. and activTek Health Solutions said field trials for activTek Environmental’s ActivePure technology were completed successfully.
The trial used an activTek Induct 500 unit installed in an SJC Premiere ambulance. Independent lab results showed complete neutralization of bacteria, mold, viruses and other contaminants. SJC said no-maintenance, filterless ActivePure technology is available on its McCoy Miller, Marque and Premiere ambulances.
Beth Krah, owner of activTek Health Solutions, said ActivePure technology is the only system available to the EMS community that encompasses a “purifying plasma” which is continually proactive, not passive.
“Other systems rely on contaminated air to be carried through filters to treat it,” she said. “ActivePure technology produces a non-detectable plasma by units like the Induct 500 and relies on the air current to carry this technology to the environment, reaching those nooks and crannies which can escape disinfecting wipes.”
UV lights may deactivate bacteria, but Krah said ActivePure technology will neutralize it on contact, dramatically reducing odors and contaminants where they start. The technology also reaches interior surfaces and continues to work long after cleaners and disinfectants have evaporated, she said.
Weighing less than 3 pounds, the Induct 500 has activTek Environmental’s proprietary ActivePure technology using radiant catalytic ionization (RCI). The technology, according to the company, has been rigorously tested and proven to reduce 99.8 percent of bacteria and viruses.
SJC Industries, the second largest ambulance manufacturer in the U.S., was the first to offer ActivePure technology in all of its ambulances.
“We are very pleased with the results and the complete and timely support of activTek Health Solutions,” said SJC Director of Operations Ron Curran. “SJC stands completely behind this technology as the next step to ensuring the health and well-being of the EMS community.”
