NL First Province in Canada to Test ActivePure Technology in Hospital Environment;

Local distributors busy responding to commercial demand 


St. John’s – Originally developed by NASA for use in space, ActivePure technology is now used worldwide for its ability to kill harmful viruses and other pathogens in the air and on surfaces, quickly and effectively. This technology is being utilized in various industries and sectors helping organizations to strengthen health and safety measures. Most recently, ActivePure technology was successfully pilot tested in a local healthcare setting by Aerus Medical Canada LLC.

“ActivePure is an extremely effective technology, giving facilities a 24/7 infection control tool that eradicates dangerous viruses and pathogens in the air and on surfaces, which is especially important in a hospital environment,” said Byron Bartlett, VP of Aerus Medical Canada LLC. “More specifically, ActivePure is effective at eradicating MRSA and C. Diff which are particularly stubborn for health care providers. We are confident that the benefits of adding ActivePure technology in healthcare settings will be far-reaching.”

Newfoundland and Labrador is the first province in Canada to complete ActivePure testing in a hospital, and units are now being installed for a pilot project currently underway with Eastern Health. This is in-line with the health authority’s commitment to procuring innovative solutions, as well as promoting a healthy workplace.

“When added to regular cleaning and sanitation practices, ActivePure technology will seamlessly strengthen the way a facility protects its staff and clients; making it healthier and safer for all,” adds Bartlett.

Given the strengthened focus on health and safety, local ActivePure suppliers have seen an increase in engagement from various sectors and industries. Regional supplier, PFS Health Solutions has noticed a surge in the commercial sector’s interest in this technology as employers and operators in NL look to mitigate health risks and strengthen business continuity and growth.
