RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leading environmental design and manufacturing company, has released the results of a third-party study that reveal REME HALO® efficacy of 99.9% against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, commonly known as the coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19.
Commencing in March 2020, the study was overseen by Dr. James Marsden, Executive Director of Science and Technology at RGF. “The study results show the REME HALO® to be effective in combating the COVID-19 virus and a valuable solution to immediately improve the Indoor Air Quality of residential and commercial spaces and protect occupants against exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 virus.” The studies are ongoing.
The independent third-party study focused on the inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 using RGF’s proprietary REME HALO® product with PHI- Cell® technology. The testing, performed at the Innovative Bioanalysis Laboratories in Cypress, Calif., looked at neutralizing the virus within the occupied space in the air and on surfaces.
“In our New Normal, the public deserves the confidence of Indoor Air Quality solutions that are backed by science. This study proves the efficacy of one of our flagship products,” said Ron Fink, CEO, RGF® Environmental Group, Inc. “From restaurants to schools and places of business, RGF’s REME HALO® is a tested and proven solution that provides the peace of mind needed to get America back to work.”
The test procedure used the SARS-CoV-2 virus inside a large chamber (1,280 cu. ft.) representing a real-world air-conditioned office or home. The virus was nebulized into the space simulating a sneeze or cough from an infected person. With the REME HALO® operating inside the chamber the virus was reduced on contact, resulting in a 99.9% reduction of the virus within the simulated real-world space.
The REME HALO® active air purification system testing showed the SARS-CoV-2 virus was significantly neutralized within the occupied space on airborne virus, reducing the risk of person-to-person infection by respiratory particles and aerosols. The REME HALO® is an “active” solution that neutralizes SARS-CoV-2 within the occupied space, eliminating the need for virus particles to travel through the HVAC system filters or UV air purification system.
