Since the Justinian Plague pandemic of 541 AD, located in the Eastern Roman Empire,
much has occurred, not excluding the rise of transportation and importance of travel for
commerce and pleasure. With this occurrence, so has the reduction in time it takes for
continental and world wide spread of novel infectious diseases into communities absent
of immunity. For that reason, pandemics have become more frequent and will continue
to occur well after the Covid-19 pandemic has passed.
In the meantime, it is important to use all measures available to combat those pandemic
processes which remain. Whether Bird or Swine flu, MERs or SARs, Covid-19 found a
species without immunity, willing to assist in its spread. By using masks, social
distancing, hand-sanitizers and disinfectants, an approach was established on reducing
the spread of infectious disease. Each approach however does have their limitations.
For example, the N95 mask filters 95% of particles 0.3 microns in size or larger, Covid19 is
0.13 microns and is smaller in size. Covid-19 mostly travels by respiratory
droplets, and even if people do wear masks, the particles can still exit out the side; and
with some masks, through the material itself. Once landing on a variety of surfaces, it
can live and be infectious for 9 days, now positioned for contact spread. Like all
microbes, they remain a dangerous and invisible enemy when given the right
circumstances. Hand sanitizers and traditional disinfectants remove the microbial
footprint as it exists, but once dried, their effectiveness ends until reapplied.
Unintentional recontamination of the surface and then to the hand becomes a tool of
transmission through eyes, nasal and oral passages.
That is, until the Pro-Techs product became available. An EPA green product and food
grade, using the “Achilles heel” of all microbes through the negatively charged outer cell
membrane or capsid in the case of viruses, the organism is pulled towards the positively
charged nitrogen molecule within Pro-Tech’s structure, causing death by electrocution.
Unable to mutate against its mechanism of action, Pro-Techs continues to work after
application for 90 days on hard surfaces and longer on textiles. Repetitive application of
traditional disinfectants becomes unnecessary and Pro-Techs continued efficacy
becomes assured through its electrocution process, not a limited chemical kill. This
technology not only has an effect on organisms associated with pandemics, but also the
pathogens associated with the common cold, Influenza A & B, norovirus and
staphylococcus. While the need for masks, social distancing and hand sanitizers are
still necessary, keeping surrounding surfaces microbial free helps improve the
environment encountered by all people, in all environments where applied, on a minute
by minute basis.
As with most challenging times, innovative means of handling a
potential crisis can be found through the use of American technology and the American
spirit. Unlike others I have examined to date, the Pro-Techs product has American
Independent Laboratory studies supporting their claims. It is for this reason I would throw
my support behind this innovative technology to be a “key” factor in dealing with and
preventing infectious microbial pathogens from contact spread as we currently face and will
continue to do so into the distant future.
