Outbreaker Solutions Responds to COVID-19
02 June 2020
Outbreaker Solutions has partnered with virology professor Dr. Lilly Pang at the University of Alberta's Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry to characterize the virucidal effects of compressed sodium chloride (CSC). This research is now underway.
Sodium chloride has been demonstrated as a virucidal agent against influenza (Quan et al. 2017). These data suggest that sodium chloride may inactivate other enveloped viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19. The current research program is investigating the effect of CSC surfaces on a collection of enteric and respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, and norovirus.
This project has been supported by funds received from Hoffmann-La Roche Limited. Outbreaker Solutions is solely accountable for the content associated with the project and certifies that all content has been developed without the influence of our funding partners.
Fast, Effective & Affordable Prevention
Outbreaker is a patented, self-sanitizing, antimicrobial surface made of compressed sodium chloride (CSC). This solid, durable, versatile surface can be installed on anything frequently touched by hands.
Outbreaker is made by a specialized compression process that turns simple, safe and non-toxic salt into a versatile surface. This simple new product is amazingly effective.
Independent laboratory tests have shown that Outbreaker kills between 95% and 99.9% of common germs like E. coli and Salmonella in just one minute. It has also shown to be extremely effective against drug resistant superbugs like MRSA and VRE.
Outbreaker Solutions has patent protection for this antimicrobial CSC technology in a number of jurisdictions worldwide.
Outbreaker is the most effective antimicrobial surface, in that it works on the order of seconds, instead of hours or days like other surfaces. We believe the best way to inform our customer is to be transparent when it comes to the alternatives that are available.
We have outlined below how Outbreaker differs from other antimicrobial products including copper and silver as compared to a stainless steel surface.
