Summary: The CASPR NICU Testing Report 2023 presents the results of microbial testing of the CASPR’s Natural Catalytic Conversion technology, a novel technology for continuous air and surface pathogen reduction (CASPR), in six NICUs in a children's hospital. The study compared samples collected before and after the introduction of CASPR equipment for 21 days. The results showed a 92.3% reduction in fungal load, indicating the effectiveness of the CASPR system in reducing bioburden on environmental surfaces in the NICU pods tested. The report concludes that the implementation of CASPR units is essential within the NICU environment due to the significant risks of healthcare associated infections (HAI’s) for neonates.

CASPR’s mobile and in-duct disinfection technology uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) process that extracts oxygen and moisture from ambient air and then produces and continuously delivers a low concentration (less than 0.1 ppm) of gaseous hydrogen peroxide to clean a target area.
With so much attention on finding the safest and most effective ways to
protect kids and teachers during school, Sterasure, a Canadian biotechnology distributor, worked with Sporometrics, an accredited laboratory, to test and demonstrate the real-world effectiveness of CASPR’s technology in a school setting. The test was arranged through a Toronto preschool and kindergarten school in October 2020.
During the test, the school’s air was analyzed along with multiple surfaces for bacterial load. The CASPR 5000 In-Duct units were then installed, and the environment was tested again two weeks later. The surfaces tested included various high-touch surfaces, including keyboards, bathroom surfaces, desks, furniture and tech equipment.
students safe during transit. Aerobic bacteria were chosen as a surrogate to general pathogen presence but are not limiting. NCC technology has been proven effective against most other prevalent viruses, fungi and bacteria. Implementation of this system will result in a reduced bio burden on the buses and therefore should minimize the risk of pathogen transmission.
