Steam Vapour to vanquish Superbug

Tests conducted by Texas-based Antimicrobial Test Laboratories (ATL) have demonstrated rapid destruction of the NDM-1 strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria using Advanced Vapour Technologies’ TANCS®-equipped steam vapour units. The studies conducted showed that the steam vapour device could eradicate NDM-1 Klebsiella on a hard surface within just two seconds of contact – much faster than traditional disinfectants. These findings are exciting because ‘shorting’ contact times for liquid disinfectants is a major problem in hospitals, and is undoubtedly responsible for environmental surface conditions leading to many infections.”
