Betterair 800


A proven approach to eliminate viruses from indoor surfaces and objects.

Coronavirus types can survive on surfaces and objects for several days, possibly even up to 9 days. When the viruses land on a surface and are later touched, it can then infect a person even if the contact occurs days after the initial virus exposure. COVID-19, combined with other pathogens entering your body, can overwhelm your immune system. Betterair not only boosts your immunity but has been proven to eliminate pathogens similar to Coronavirus on surfaces within hours !!!  

A summary by Dr. Judy Neff, Phd, head of Antimicrobial Atmospheres at AirRx Anti Microbial Sciences, John Hopkins University, shows that the application of Betterair reduces the FCV virus (a virus akin to the coronavirus family) by more than 99%.

Exposure to only 15 minutes of the Betterair’s probiotics, followed by a 6 hour total hold time, resulted in a complete kill (>99.99%) of the virus.

Detailed Description

We have some very interesting data using the probiotics from Better Air. The graphs are in the attached pdf file for your reference… Just a note, if we look at total bacteria counts on contaminated surfaces exposed to the probiotic, the counts are the same or even a little higher than contaminated surfaces not exposed to the probiotic; this is as expected because the probiotic is a bacteria itself, so it grows on regular nutrient media. For this reason, this is not a traditional assessment evaluating total killing potential of a disinfectant. We have to use selective media that only grows the bacteria of interest and not the probiotic strains. We started with the bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa because we had the best luck plating it on selective media on which the probiotic doesn’t grow. 

The experimental design is to expose glass slides contaminated with P. aeruginosa to the 

probiotic for a defined time ( = the machine turned on) and followed by a hold for a defined time period ( = enclosure sealed, but machine turned off). The samples are collected after the hold time and are plated on selective media to enumerate the viable P. aeruginosa remaining on the exposed slide (“Exposed to Probiotics”) and we compare that to slides that were not exposed to the probiotic, but remained dried on the slide for the same period of time (“Unexposed”). In the group exposed to the probiotic for 15 minutes, you will see a decrease in viable P. aeruginosa as the hold time increases, with a complete kill at the 6 hour hold time. We also have some data from runs in which the exposure time was 1 hour, followed by different total hold times, but due to the more interesting data at the 15 minute exposure time, we are focusing our efforts there. We will be repeating these data over the next 2 weeks because a single run is not biologically significant… 

After we have a nice data set for the 2 bacteria and 1 virus, I plan to run 2 larger scale studies.

The most interesting data, but also 1 run only, was with Feline Calicivirus, which is the EPA-

mandated norovirus surrogate. Exposure to 15 minutes of the probiotics, followed by a 6 hour 

total hold time resulted in a complete kill (>99.99%) of the virus. This is very exciting!
