Stabilised Aqueous Ozone: Killing harmful viruses

Coronavirus: fearing the unknown

Viruses (especially covid-19) are the topic of conversation at the moment, with fears over the coronavirus sweeping the globe. 81,000 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed worldwide and many are growing concerned over how little we know about the disease and its ability to spread. It is still unknown as to whether the disease is airborne or just spread through human contact. However, viruses by nature are difficult to contain, highly contagious and spread like wildfire. Thankfully, Stabilised Aqueous Ozone offers a powerful solution, able to kill some of the most infectious viruses in a matter of seconds, whilst being 100% safe for people.


Killing viruses with Stabilised Aqueous Ozone

Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) is a highly effective cleaner, sanitiser and deodoriser, proven to kill some of the toughest viruses. A natural and chemical-free solution, SAO™ is created using just electricity, oxygen and water. Yet despite using only natural elements, it is still able to kill highly infectious viruses such as norovirus, rotavirus, enteric adenovirus and Norwalk virus. In fact, our tests have proven it will kill norovirus in just 2 seconds when sprayed onto the infected surface, despite norovirus being one of the most difficult viruses to kill.


Is SAO™ able to tackle airborne viruses?

Airborne viruses are tricky to kill and survive longer than those transmitted through contact or infected surfaces. They are easily spread, particularly in a closed environment with air conditioning or ventilation systems. Spraying toxic chemical disinfectants into the air to kill the virus will cause additional health implications such as respiratory issues, exacerbated asthma, skin irritation and eye irritation. SAO™ is a natural deodoriser able to neutralise the air and create a safe environment to be in. Because it is free from chemicals, you can safely spray it, eliminating harmful airborne pathogens and viruses with zero impact on your breathing, skin and eyes.


Can SAO™ kill coronavirus?

Because the novel coronavirus is so new to us, we are currently doing the tests to confirm that SAO™ can kill covid-19 and expect to see the results in the coming weeks. What we do know, however, is that Aqueous Ozone is proven to kill tougher viruses than coronvirus. Studies on ozone have shown that it is highly effective against lipid-enveloped viruses (of which the Coronaviridae are categorised as). It is likely that the powerful stabilised Aqueous Ozone solution will have a similar impact on the novel coronavirus as the others, and we are confident that the test results will reflect this. We will be sure to update you as soon as we get the official report! To find out more about SAO™, click the link:


Latest virus testing update

Over the past couple of months, Tersano have been working tirelessly to arrange lab-based tests which reveal SAO’s effectiveness against viruses such as Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Since this blog post was written, further tests have been conducted, the results of which you can see on our ‘Virus updates’ page.
