New ActivePure Technology Proven To Reduce Exposure to Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
Date:11/1/2007

GREENVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A new technology known as ActivePure (RCI), developed by Tennessee-based EcoQuest International, has been proven in peer-reviewed, published university laboratory studies to reduce Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) on inoculated surfaces.

Recent outbreaks of MRSA in many school districts have had school administrators and parents concerned.

Based on NASA research, ActivePure (RCI) has been proven in laboratory testing at Kansas State University to reduce MRSA by more than 99 percent in 24 hours on surface areas. This has enormous implications for reducing exposure to infection-causing germs.

"ActivePure safely inactivates germs in the environment 24 hours a day, without sprays or wipes, the same way it happens in nature," said EcoQuest Founder Mike Jackson.

"And, it's convenient. One of our systems called the ecobox is about the size of a toaster," said Jackson. "You can move it all around the environment."

Testing also proved that the units reduce other bacteria, viruses, yeast, mold and fungi on surfaces by up to 99 percent. Products using ActivePure (RCI) have been installed in schools, day cares, nursing homes and restaurants. This technology is also available to consumers.

"The use of ActivePure can reduce exposure by inactivating a majority of harmful bacteria, viruses and mold from surfaces in the protected area," said Dr. James Marsden, Regents Distinguished Professor at Kansas State University and a lead researcher involved with the testing.

"In combination with good hygiene practices, such as hand washing, a reduction in bacteria and viruses on environmental surfaces could reduce the risk of infections," said Marsden.
