Clinical studies demonstrate the effectiveness of SANI SYSTEM for professional sanitisation

Polti Sani System has been subjected to numerous laboratory tests and clinical studies, both in Italy and abroad, confirming the safe use and effectiveness of Sani System in the reduction of the microbial load.

The Polti Sani System sanitising method should be used whenever and wherever microbiological contamination has to be kept under control and reduced to the lowest possible safety levels such as healthcare environments, industries, transportation systems, hotels, food companies and public places in general.

Results have shown that it is possible to obtain better results with this innovative sanitising method than with traditional methods.


Here are all the tests carried to demonstrate Polti Sani System effectiveness

1Evaluation of the virucidal effectiveness (h1n1) of the Polti Sani System

Biolab Laboratory, Vimodrone (Milan), Italy
The virucidal effectiveness of the Polti Sani System was evaluated in accordance with European standard EN 14476.
The test, carried out by the Biolab Laboratory in Vimodrone (province of Milan) showed that the Sani System was even more effective than required by European standards in lowering the viral load of the H1n1 virus.
Polti Sani System was able to lower the viral load by over 99.99 % in only 15 seconds, thus obtaining a reduction in excess of 4 logarithmic orders.

2Evaluation of the reduction of the microbial load activity in a microbiology laboratory

Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
Sanitisation with Polti Sani System was found to be effective to reduce the bacterial load on a work surface previously contaminated with the following micro-organisms: Escherichia coli, coagualase-negative Staphylococcus, Klebsiella pneumoniaez and Proteus mirabilis.

3Testing the effectiveness of Polti Sani System for eliminating infestations due to Cimex Lectularius

Pest 2000&Pest 3000 - Pest Control Management Services, Milan, Italy
The laboratory tests demonstrated that the Sani System is capable of eliminating all the eggs and an extremely significant proportion of the mobile stages (adults and nymphs) in a single pass.
Field tests demonstrated that Sani System has eliminated the Cimex infestation completely in a number of treatments (between two and three). The combined use of steam and HPMed also enabled the de-aggregation of the viscous substance that binds the eggs to surfaces, the removal of the typical smell of Cimex and the elimination of the traces due to excrements.

4Evaluation of activity on MRSA

Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
The bactericidal activity of Polti Sani System in respect of two strains of Methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) has been analysed on different kinds of surfaces.
The use of Polti Sani System for 30 seconds has proved to be effective in sanitising different materials such as stainless steel and melamine table tops, with a reduction of the bacterial load by 4 logarithms, while on ceramic surfaces, a bacterial residue was found for the most resistant strain of MRSA.


5Evaluation of acute inhalation toxicity

Chemservice Laboratory, Milan, Italy
The results obtained by means of in vivo laboratory tests of acute inhalation toxicity on rats have shown that the HPMed solution does not result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System) classification and labelling system, at the highest concentration that can be reached ("Unclassified, because no effects were observed at the maximum achievable concentration").

6Sanitising in a hospital and comparison with conventional disinfection methods

Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit and Microbiology Unit, San Carlo Borromeo Hospital, Milan, Italy
Polti Sani System proved to have an activity in respect of several gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and various types of fungi.
Its anti microbial activity has been found on equipment, in rooms and on inert materials such as plastic, metal and glass. In standard operating conditions, sanitisation carried out with Sani System lead to a reduction of the total microbial load by 91.6%, compared to 88.8% using conventional methods (sodium hypochlorite solution for all surfaces with the exception of metal surfaces, on which a 0.5 % polyphenol solution was used).

7Effectiveness of Polti Sani System in reducing microbial load on inanimate surfaces

Swinburne University of Technology, Australia
A 30 seconds nebulising of Polti Sani System was effective in reducing the microbial load by 100% for representative Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi and yeasts.
A 30 seconds nebulising of Polti Sani System reduced the load of bacterial endospores by 97%.

8Dermatological evaluation study

Chelab Laboratory, Treviso, Italy
The results obtained with patch tests used for examining the skin compatibility in healthy volunteers showed that the HPMed solution, applied in non-occlusive conditions to the healthy skin of 20 volunteers caused an average irritation index of nil and did not therefore result as classified according to the GHS (Globally Harmonised System).
