Full Report


To evaluate the efficacy of the NV200 on reducing Mycobacterium tuberculosis.


The NV200 unit was placed inside a 68 litre plastic enclosure. The plastic enclosure and test set up was placed inside a biosafety cabinet. Clinical isolate of Mycobacterium tuberculosis was aseptically transferred into a sterile mycobacteria growth indicator tube (MGIT) and Lowenstein-Jensen (LJ) medium.

Summary of Results

The air sample collected from the test after being exposed to the NV200 showed no growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This shows that the device has effectively rendered all airborne Mycobacterium tuberculosisnon-viable.
