Frequently Asked Questions

CASPR stands for Continuous Air & Surface Pathogen Reduction. At the heart of CASPR is a photocatalytic converter that reacts with H2O molecules in the air to continuously create highly effective oxidizing molecules which are delivered at safe levels to all surfaces. The CASPR technology continuously reduces the level of clinically relevant pathogens from the air and on surfaces.

Yes. The CASPR technology was designed to work continuously in occupied spaces, providing pathogen reduction all day, every day without disrupting your team or your patients.

CASPR has not been specifically tested on SARS CoV-2, however it has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS CoV-2

Yes. CASPR Mobile should not be placed on the ground. Ideally it should be placed on a counter or shelf where air is circulating, e.g. near a supply vent, not a return vent. If you have closed areas of your office you might consider an additional unit for that area.

CASPR Mobile is easy to install, simply take it from the box, place it on a counter or shelf, plug it in and turn it on. it is very low maintenance, requiring only minimal cleaning and a bulb replacement every 12 to 18 months.

No. CASPR Mobile is virtually silent.

Yes, every CASPR Mobile is covered by a 12 month warranty.

Yes, Microchem Laboratories performed testing. Their results were as follows: 

“The results show material reduction of bacteria, fungi, and viruses after the installation of CASPR. The difference between the control samples and the samples exposed to CASPR shows a significant reduction of pathogens on surfaces independently of the pathogen tested. The following data highlights the percentages of reduction of microorganisms on surfaces, compared to a control which has not been exposed to CASPR. 

Individual results on surfaces within the test room showed significant reductions ranging from 91% to over 99.998%. The continuous disinfection from low levels of H2O2 were found to exert a significant reduction of the microbial burden compared to the control microorganisms that were not exposed to CASPR. 

Testing results indicate that CASPR materially reduces or eliminates microorganisms on surfaces in a controlled environment. Results showed Bacteria was reduced over 99.998%, Fungi was reduced over 95%, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus (MRSA) was reduced over 99.98%, Influenza A (H1N1) was reduced over 99.93%, and MS2 (virus) was reduced over 99.993%, on surfaces during the testing. CASPR was very effective in eliminating hospital indigenous pathogens, including MRSA, upon contact on all surfaces.”

One hospital study showed a 42% reduction in absenteeism among ICU team members. Additionally, because CASPR also reduces mold and bacteria, overall air quality is greatly improved.

CASPR's photocatalytic converter uses humidity in the air to generate a low concentration of gaseous oxidizing molecules like H202 (hydrogen peroxide) to continually clean the air and surfaces in your environment.
