on-site & on-demand production

THE PATHISOL ANNIHLYZER

  • The Pathisol Annihlyzer is advanced machinery that produces an eco-friendly, highly effective cleaning fluid that can produce up to 1400 litres a day at 500 ppm.
  • This can then be easily transferred into recyclable bottles for mobile use.
  • The Pathisol Annihilyzer is available on a leasing agreement to save on large upfront costs and your carbon footprint.

The science of Pathisol

Pathisol Disinfectant is one of the most potent anti-bacterial (many EN tests) and anti-viral (BS/EN 14476) disinfectants available in dilute solution. It is also effective against mycobacteria, fungi, spores, and prions and at deactivating microbial toxins. Having a high redox potential, means it is a very effective disinfectant.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is produced by the phagocytic white blood cells of the mammalian immune system to kill microbes at an intracellular scale.  Pathisol Disinfectant contains the same natural HOCl and amplifies its effectiveness.

The same manufacturing process produces the Pathisol All-Purpose Cleaner which is very dilute NaOH. This is also energised, and despite its extreme dilution, it is a highly effective degreasing and cleaning agent. It is used to remove all the dirt that might prevent the Pathisol Disinfectant from touching the remaining microbes, allowing it to work optimally.

Resistance against Pathisol Disinfectant is most unlikely because it destroys all microbes in seconds by using all or some of the following four methods simultaneously, depending upon whether the microbe is a virus, a bacteria, or a fungus:

  • Destroys membranes – everything inside the cell leaks out
  • Destroys genes – no genetic instructions
  • Destroys enzymes – stopping the life functions of the cell
  • Destroys proteins – damaging the cell structures
  • It even kills pathogens that are normally particularly difficult to kill
