Officially recognized by NASA Certified Space Technology "ActivePure" with "SurfaceGuard" inactivated MRSA Staph 99.99% with about 97% of that kill in just two hours!

Together with help from school officials and local leaders, we can protect the health and secure the future of our children and loved ones for generations to come, by incorporating this scientifically proven technology into our local schools, hospitals, nursing homes, health clubs and daycare centers, helping to protect the entire education system and medical profession from increasing lawsuits and rising medical costs.
