Artemis Bio-Solutions’ product line was developed for our national security at Sandia National Laboratories (Artemis Bio-Solutions is #22 on the list with Anthrax Decontamination) to protect our frontline military from biological and chemical threats. We are honored to have roots in our nation’s premier science, technology and engineering innovation laboratory since 2012. Artemis Bio-Solutions is now ready to protect our healthcare frontline workers, patients and medical facilities with the same products used to defeat anthrax attacks to SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, TB to HIV, yet environmentally friendly to be non-toxic and non-corrosive.
Artemis Bio-Solutions for Healthcare – We can help address the new challenges in containing and managing infection control with our EPA and FDA registered products that have the highest log kill. There is a variety of delivery methods with easy to use equipment from foam, spray, fog or soaking. Our products can be incorporated to current infection control practices from patient care, surgical, sterile processing, maintenance, and housekeeping. We can also refer Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) certified partners if staffing is needed to perform these important tasks or offer GBAC training and certification for your facility.
INFECTION CONTROL AND RISK MANAGEMENT
In real world applications, SARS-CoV-2 does not exist alone. When airborne, SARS-CoV-2 is almost always surrounded by and protected by bodily fluids (e.g., saliva, nasal mucous, etc.) which makes it very persistent in the environment. When it lands on a surface, the situation is even worse because SARS-CoV-2 is also protected by organic material and soil on those surfaces making it even more persistent. In addition, the genetic material in the SARS-CoV-2 virus is surrounded by a lipid envelope (i.e., an oily material).
Other disinfectants are repelled or inactivated by the bodily fluids, soil/organic material, and lipid envelope surrounding SARS-CoV-2 and never actually come in contact with the virus so it survives. Many of these other disinfectants pass laboratory tests against viruses in artificial conditions but fail in real-world applications. For example, 10% chlorine bleach achieves high efficacy against pathogens in laboratory tests but often fails in the field because it does not penetrate organic matter.
LOG KILL EFFICACY MATTERS
*Note that the efficacy estimates are not intended to include all disinfectants but only examples of low efficacy and high efficacy products.
