Sept. 25, 2008 - PRLog -- A Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) study led by Dr. Daniel L. Price, PhD, shows unequivocal evidence that Vital Oxide kills resistant forms of bacteria on carpets.  

Study authors concluded that,  "The data from this test series indicates that Vital Oxide a broad spectrum disinfectant meets efficacy requirements for a carpet sanitizer label claim.  This product consistently produced 3 log reductions of the challenge bacteria prescribed in EPA DIS/TSS-8."

The three types of bacteria tested in the study were Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Staphylococcus aureus bacteria is the most common cause of staph infections and can cause relatively minor skin irritations to life-threatening illnesses such as meningitis and pneumonia.

Enterobacter aerogenes bacteria has recently caught the attention of hospitals nationwide and has been particularly resistant against eradication.   Enterobacter bacterium are pathogenic and cause opportunistic infections on the skin and other tissues.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is also an opportunistic human pathogen.  Pseudomonas bacteria can lead to urinary tract, pulmonary tract, and blood borne infections that can become severe if not treated properly.

In all of the efficacy tests conducted, Vital Oxide killed over 99% of the challenge bacteria.
