Radic8 is the company that owns and manufactures the highest certified clean air technology in the world, called Viruskiller™.
History: Viruskiller™ core technology was initially funded by the Korean Government after the 2003 SARS epidemic. For the past 16 years, the technology has been focused on killing airborne viruses and has since been installed in over 80% of hospitals in South Korea, all lung examination rooms, universities, and more.
Airflow: One of the most overlooked aspects in air sterilization is controlled airflow. Viruskiller™ units have been designed in collaboration with South Korea’s Aerospace University to achieve unparalleled airflow control in indoor settings ranging from operating theaters, to waiting rooms, to offices.
Single Air Exchange Kill Rates: If a technology draws contaminated air in, then pushes it back into the breathing zone without completely sterilizing it, it dramatically increases the risk of cross contamination. When it comes to viruses, the only relevant test results are on a single air exchange, where our tech achieves 99.9999% virus kill rates.
Studies show that viruses can penetrate HEPA filters, so after our HEPA we use our patented reactor chamber which is full of UV radiation and nano oxidisation that breaks the RNA of viruses. Our test results show a 99.9999% kill rate on respiratory viruses, including Coronavirus, on a single air exchange.
The optional collar attachment for positive or negative air pressure and the ducting needs to be bought separately. We only provide the air sterilization unit. VK Medi and VK 103 for creating positive pressure systems and VK 102 for creative negative pressure systems.
Yes our units remove viruses from the air and reduce surface settlement by up to 80% if installed correctly, they cannot however do anything about viruses and other contaminants that have already settled onto the floor.
The Viruskiller™ technology was funded by the Korean Government as an emergency response to the 2003 SARS epidemic and was developed by a consortium of universities and government bodies. The first virus killing tests arrived in 2004, showing a 99.9999% kill rate on Corona Virus, Adeno Virus, Influenza Virus and Polio Virus.
Since then, the technology and individual units have been tested numerous times on different strains of bacteria, ozone generation, ultra fine particles, VOC’s and more. There is probably no other technology on the market as extensively tested as Viruskiller™.
Radic8 products are used in many sectors as well as the medical sector. We have therefore not registered it with KFDA as a medical device.
Our tests were conducted on SARS coronavirus which has almost an identical size/structure/envelope as the current Covid19 and is widely accepted as a substitute.
The forced airflow will greatly reduce surface settlement of viruses and therefore reduce the viral load on the surfaces. Radic8 technology does not actively kill viruses on surfaces but it does reduce the amount that can settle on the surfaces by destroying them while they are still in the air.
Whilst Covid19 is thought to be predominantly transmitted by droplets, they can be various sized droplets, including fine droplets that can stay in the air for hours. Droplets not only released whilst coughing or sneezing. The simple act of talking, eating and even breathing can release them. (please see the attached video from Japan). This is why many governments, including our own, have now made mask wearing compulsory for the general public. There are many studies that have been done on this matter (such as this one: https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMc2004973).
In addition, it is a known fact that virus droplets attach to larger particles in the air such as dust, pollution or other particles and then effectively becomes airborne. This is why maintaining clean air reduces the risk of viruses being transported through the air. There is increasing evidence that the Corona virus is airborne due to pollution and other particulate matter.
