We're on a mission to make the world's food and water supply safer!
MADISON, WI, December 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Initial results of a cooperative study performed at the University of Wisconsin- Madison BioSafety Level 2 Microbiology Laboratory (BSL2), confirms the ability of BIOIONIX, LLC's CXS Electrolyzed Water Generator to eradicate Listeria Monocytogenes (L. mono) in brine solution provided by a major meat producer. UW- BSL2 performed the study and is finalizing study reports.
The study was conducted by inoculating 100 gallons of used RTE meat brine with _6 logs cfu/ml of Listeria. Upon inoculation, the BIOIONIX® CXS Generator was engaged to reduce the microbial load of the inoculated brine. The system was successfully able to reduce the Listeria levels in the brine to Limit of Detection (_10cfu/ml), essentially a 99.9999% removal of the pathogen.
A follow up study of 50 gallons of fresh brine pretreated with the BIOIONIX® system was inoculated with a similar dose of Listeria (6 logs cfu/ml). Due to the High Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) established by treatment with the Bioionix CXS, the Listeria did not meet Limit of Detection (10cfu/ml).
Ryan Karns, BIOIONIX President states, "We're on a mission to make the world's food and water supply safer! Our proven, approved and patented technology uses non-chemical, natural SuperOxidants to disrupt and destroy the DNA and RNA of pathogens!"
The results align with another study BIOIONIX® had previously performed in conjunction with a different major meat producer, challenging raw poultry with Salmonella.
Listeria and Salmonella are among the most dangerous food-borne pathogens with millions of yearly infections in the US and dozens of yearly outbreaks. These pathogens are particularly dangerous for children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems. In addition, these bacteria are very costly for food producers. USDA statistics show that Listeria and Salmonella are the top two pathogens responsible for food recalls.
BIOIONIX® systems offer a unique chemical-free, non-toxic advantage for food producers. As these studies and others suggest, Slightly Acidic Electrolyzed Water (SAEW) is a safe and highly effective disinfectant in many different applications. BIOIONIX® is the only industrial-scale producer of SAEW in the world.
About BIOIONIX, LLC. –
www.bioionix.com BIOIONIX, LLC., headquartered in Fitchburg, WI, USA, is a technology platform company that develops, manufactures and distributes proprietary electrolytic systems to eliminate pathogens and other microbes from water. In the area of food manufacturing and seawater treatment, the company has developed a breakthrough for water microbial safety and reuse without chemicals which can affect taste, safety and quality. The BIOIONIX system uses specialized catalysts to directly disinfect water, brine and turbid processing liquids by generating a powerful combination of reactive oxygen and activated chlorine species directly from the liquid itself. These BIOIONIX® SuperOxidants attack microbes by complementary methods of action, including direct DNA destruction, cytoplasm impairment, and cell wall disruption. Other SuperOxidants provide powerful residual disinfection throughout the processing systems.
