Safety and effectiveness testing is conducted in independent laboratories. In selected cases we continuously monitor microbial hygiene of surface cleanliness treated by NANOSTERILE spray coating by skim-coating method on the basis of AMP-ATP markers.
Tested under JIS Z 2801 (antibacterial activity)
The JIS Z 2801 method tests the ability of surfaces to inhibit the growth of microorganisms or kill them. Method is the most commonly chosen test and has become the industry standard for antimicrobial hard surface performance in the United States. The JIS Z 2801 procedure has been adopted as an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) procedure, ISO 22196.
EFFICACY AND SAFETY CONFIRMED BY INDEPENDENT LABORATORIES AND PRACTICE IN REAL LIFE CONDITIONS. APPROVED ACTIVE SUBSTANCES BY ECHA AND EPA.
Aspergillus is a most common type of fungi in the environment. About 16 species of Aspergillus molds are known to be dangerous to humans, causing disease and infection. (Test in Petri dish, protocol here.)

EVALUATION WITH THE ATP TEST
In selected cases, we perform continuous monitoring of microbial purity of the treated surfaces. We perform the test by a swab method, based on AMP-ATP markers. The presence of bacteria on the surface is determined on the basis of a bioluminescent ATP test, based on the measuring of the amount of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) contained in all living cells or their parts as well as in microorganisms, where it serves as a source of energy. The amount of ATP present is thus directly proportional to the amount of microbial contamination.
By the wetted smear, we obtain the amount of ATP that signals the extent of contamination by microorganisms and organic substances. The obtained ATP is then applied to a special ampoule containing a lucipherin solution, where, in the presence of magnesium ions and oxygen, it quickly (in approx. 10 seconds) reacts with the lucipherin enzyme. Thus, light is created, which can be measured by a sensitive meter. The intensity of the emitted light is expressed in relative light units, called RLU, and is directly proportional to the amount of ATP in the sample, thus signalling the extent of possible biological contamination. Bioluminescence, due to its precision and speed, has an especially wide application, for example in the food industry, in medicine, in space research, in basic biological research, etc.
