CLINICAL STUDIES

Polti Sani System has been subjected to numerous laboratory tests and
clinical studies, both in Italy and abroad.

Below are some of the laboratory tests and clinical studies confirming the safe use and effectiveness of Sani System in the reduction of the microbial load. Results have shown that it is possible to obtain better results with this innovative sanitizing method than with traditional methods.

EVALUATION OF THE
VIRUCIDAL EFFECTIVENESS (H1N1)
OF THE POLTI SANI SYSTEM

Biolab Laboratory
Vimodrone (Milan), Italy

The virucidal effectiveness of the Polti Sani System was evaluated in accordance with European standard EN 14476.

The test, carried out by the Biolab Laboratory in Vimodrone (province of Milan) showed that the Sani System was even more effective than required by European standards in lowering the viral load of the H1n1 virus.

Polti Sani System was able to lower the viral load by over 99.99 % in only 15 seconds, thus obtaining a reduction in excess of 4 logarithmic orders.

EVALUATION OF THE REDUCTION
OF THE MICROBIAL LOAD ACTIVITY
IN A MICROBIOLOGY LABORATORY

Istituto Cantonale di Microbiologia
Bellinzona, Switzerland

Sanitization with Sani System was found to be effective to reduce the bacterial load on a work surface previously contaminated with the following micro-organisms: Escherichia coli, coagualase-negative Staphylococcus, Klebsiella pneumoniaez and Proteus mirabilis.

TESTING THE EFFECTIVENESS
OF POLTI SANI SYSTEM
FOR ELIMINATING INFESTATIONS
DUE TO CIMEX LECTULARIUS

Pest 2000&Pest 3000
Pest Control Management Services
Milan,Italy

The laboratory tests demonstrated that the Sani System is capable of eliminating all the eggs and an extremely significant proportion of the mobile stages (adults and nymphs) in a single pass.

Field tests demonstrated that Sani System has eliminated the Cimex infestation completely in a number of treatments (between two and three). The combined use of steam and HPMed also enabled the de-aggregation of the viscous substance that binds the eggs to surfaces, the removal of the typical smell of Cimex and the elimination of the traces due to excrements.

EVALUATION OF ACTIVITY
ON MRSA

Istituto Cantonale di Microbiologia
Bellinzona, Switzerland

The bactericidal activity of Sani System in respect of two strains of Methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) has been analysed on different kinds of surfaces.

The use of Sani System for 30 seconds has proved to be effective in sanitizing different materials such as stainless steel and melamine table tops, with a reduction of the bacterial load by 4 logarithms, while on ceramic surfaces, a bacterial residue was found for the most resistant strain of MRSA.

EVALUATION OF ACUTE INHALATION TOXICITY

Chemservice Laboratory
Milan,Italy

The results obtained by means of in vivo laboratory tests of acute inhalation toxicity on rats have shown that the sanitizing solution HPMed does not result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System) classification and labelling system, at the highest concentration that can be reached ("Unclassified, because no effects were observed at the maximum achievable concentration").

SANITIZING IN A HOSPITAL
AND COMPARISON WITH
CONVENTIONAL DISINFECTION METHODS

Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit
and Microbiology Unit,
San Carlo Borromeo Hospital,
Milan, Italy

Sani System proved to have an activity in respect of several gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and various types of fungi.

Its anti microbial activity has been found on equipment, in rooms and on inert materials such as plastic, metal and glass. In standard operating conditions, sanitization carried out with Sani System lead to a reduction of the total microbial load by 91.6%, compared to 88.8% using conventional methods (sodium hypochlorite solution for all surfaces with the exception of metal surfaces, on which a 0.5 % polyphenol solution was used).

EFFICIENCY OF POLTI SANI SYSTEM
IN REDUCING MICROBIAL LOAD
ON INANIMATE SURFACES

Swinburne University of Technology
Australia

A 30 seconds nebulising of Polti Sani System was effective in reducing the microbial load by 100% for representative Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi and yeasts.

A 30 seconds nebulising reduced the load of bacterial endospores by 97%.

DERMATOLOGICAL EVALUATION
STUDY

Chelab Laboratory
Treviso, Italy

The results obtained with patch tests used for examining the skin compatibility in healthy volunteers showed that the sanitizing solution HPMed, applied in non-occlusive conditions to the healthy skin of 20 volunteers caused an average irritation index of nil and did not therefore result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System).
