Scientific study on the effectiveness of LOTUS published by Biomedical Journal of Scientific & Technical Research

A scientific study conducted on the disinfectant efficacy of the LOTUS chlorine dioxide production system has been published by the Biomedical Journal of Scientific and Technical Research.

The study is based on the experimental tests conducted on a pilot plant by prof. Roberto Lombardi of the University of Naples, in collaboration with prof. Vincenzo Spica, in order to confirm the effectiveness of the disinfection activity of the LOTUS chlorine dioxide generator, an efficacy subsequently confirmed also with an experimental test at the San Raffaele hospital in Milan, as attested by prof. Massimo Clementi.

The experimental tests conducted using a pilot plant specially built under controlled conditions, concerned some of the main bacterial hygienic-sanitary indicators and strains of Legionellaceae and Legionella pneumophila, also analyzing the contact times and toxicity of the compounds used and the formation of chemical compounds in water.

From the analysis of the results, obtained both through cultural methods and with molecular tests (genetic analysis of bacterial DNA), a strong disinfectant efficacy emerges on the various bacterial species starting from the samples taken within 5 minutes from exposure to the disinfectant, with a reduction close to 100% (> 99.999%) within 30 minutes. In particular, all of these observations confirm with high significance the disinfectant efficacy against Legionella pneumophila and the safety of use of the chlorine dioxide released inside the pilot plant.
