Anti-Microbial Test Laboratories has tested AtmosAir’s effectiveness on MS2 Bacteriophage, a surrogate for viruses, especially those that are more difficult to kill. In this test, AtmosAir reduced this by over 98% within 15 minutes and over 99.99% after 45 minutes. According to Dr. Tierno, a Professor of Microbiology and Pathology at NYU, “Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, they are easier to kill compared to n aked viruses like Noroviruses.”


MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2), ATCC 15597-B1


This virus is a non-enveloped positive-stranded RNA virus of the bacteriophage family Leviviridae. Bacterial cells are the hosts for bacteriophages, and E. coli 15597 serves this purpose for MS2 bacteriophage. Its small size, icosahedral structure, and environmental resistance has made MS2 ideal for use as a surrogate virus (particularly in place of picornaviruses such as poliovirus and human norovirus) in water quality and disinfectant studies.
