PHI-CELL® Technology Inactivates SARS-CoV-2 Virus in Commercial, Healthcare and Education Facilities
Port of Palm Beach, Florida (July 1, 2021) – RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leading environmental design and manufacturing company, announces the approval of RGF’s patented PHI-CELL® technology by the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom for installation in commercial, healthcare and education facilities. Each government approval was achieved upon review of independent studies proving that PHI-CELL® technology inactivates over 99.9% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on surfaces and 99.5% of the aerosolized form.
80+ countries utilize PHI-CELL® technology demonstrating worldwide demand for high-quality air purification products designed, engineered and manufactured in USA
“RGF® is working with public agencies across the globe to review and test our proven air treatment solutions that eliminate viruses and bacteria,” notes Dr. James Marsden, Executive Director of Science and Technology, RGF® Environmental Group, Inc. “As governments re-open their economies, they can provide higher quality indoor air quality for their citizens and visitors.”
The details of each government approval are noted as follows.
United Kingdom, National Health Services – 3 Year Contract
The East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub has approved a three-year contract for the procurement of RGF® air purification systems to be distributed through Healthy Indoor Environments Ltd. The NHS noted, “The services and equipment available under this framework support infection control needs related to COVID-19. These services and products are suitable for all areas of hospitals, both patient facing as well as support functions and office settings, putting patient and workforce safety at the fore.”
Simulated Space Testing Protocol
Innovative Bioanalysis Laboratories in Cypress, California, performed the third-party testing. RGF’s test procedure used the SARS-CoV-2 virus inside a large chamber (1,280 cu. ft.) representing a real-world conditioned commercial space. The virus was nebulized into the space simulating a sneeze or cough from an infected person. Results from the test include:
- RGF’s PHI-CELL® technology inactivated greater than 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces and inactivated 99.5% of the aerosolized form of SARS-CoV-2.
- RGF’s REME-HALO® resulting in >99% airborne inactivation of the SARS-CoV-2 within indoor environments.
