The healthcare system continues to battle treatment-resistant strains of bacteria and viruses, how to effectively treat them, and how to prevent them. EcaFlo™ Anolyte eliminates this problem by not only killing the bacteria present, but by disrupting the mitochondrial DNA eliminating any possibility of resistance mutation. The same cannot be said for other chemical biocides and even many antibiotics.
Chemistry similar to the human cell is performed by the electro-chemical activation process in EcaFlo™ equipment. A metastable mixture of compounds formed during cellular phagocytosis produces hypochlorous acid as a very effective means for microbial destruction.
As a strong oxidizing solution, hypochlorous acid produces irreversible damage of essential functions of the microorganism's biopolymers at the level of electron transmission. This process effectively destroys all large systematic groups of microorganisms (bacteria, microbacteria, viruses, fungi, spores) without damaging human tissues and other multi-cellular system organisms.
Controlling bacteria on hard surfaces, walls, floors, utensils, equipment, and containers can be accomplished by using catholyte to remove protein load, followed by anolyte to sanitize the surface. EcaFlo™ Anolyte has a major advantage over bleach because of it's neutral 7 pH and will not irritate eyes, wounds and skin, whereas bleach has a 12 pH, irritates skin and is not safe for eyes or wounds.
