About POXIDATION ®
The POXIDATION ® System was developed in order to disinfect
a large number of people quickly, cheaply and safely in the
event of an epidemic or pandemic. The trigger for the
development was the danger posed by SARS.
The peracetic acid virocid used has been known for a long time.
Peracetic acid was produced and stored in large quantities
during the Cold War so that it could be used as a disinfectant in
the event of the use of biological weapons. Their effectiveness
on various germs, bacteria, viruses and spores has been
extensively researched. The effects on the skin and eyes of
humans and animals and the effects of inhaling peracetic acid
aerosols have also been extensively investigated.
With POXIDATION ®, the rate of effectiveness is multiplied by
the short-term use of UV rays. This leads to a high kill rate in a
short time. The same principle is also effective in disinfecting
The C-P system combines chemical disinfection (C) and physical
The effectiveness of chemical disinfection with peracetic acid
within the used and recommended concentrations has been
examined several times and is scientifically documented.
Stabilized peracetic acid is used in numerous areas around the
world. Due to its bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal properties,
it is also used effectively as a disinfectant.
The bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal properties of ultraviolet
rays at a wavelength of 254 nm and in various radiation
intensities are undisputed. This is why UV light is used to
disinfect contaminated surfaces.
By arranging both disinfection methods in one disinfection unit,
a demonstrable synergy effect was achieved. This synergy effect
was expected because the ultraviolet radiation used splits the
hydrogen peroxide molecule H2O2 into HO. The hydroxyl radical
is the second known potential oxidizing agent. Many oxidation
processes, including those of biological substances, are
ultimately based on the oxidation potential of hydroxyl radicals.
Preliminary virological studies with ECBO virus, strain LCR 4,
bovine coronavirus BVCL9, ND Newcastle disease at the Justus
von Liebig University in Giessen, Germany, have impressively
confirmed this synergistic effect.
Further detailed investigations with experimentally
contaminated surfaces with different structures and materials
with different chemical compositions are currently being carried
