The science - as seen on CBS’ Inovation Nation
When bacteria is present, it gets trapped inside your bag.
Ozone, as a highly potent oxidant, is able to inactivate a broad range of microorganisms and viruses. The susceptibility of micro-organisms and viruses to ozone has been tested in a large number of investigations. Some studies suggest that molecular ozone oxidizes proteins and unsaturated fatty acids in biological membranes, leading to cell lysis or damage of viral envelopes and capsids. Ozone may also disrupt cellular enzyme activity and react with nucleic acids.
Viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within the host cell. They transform the protein of the host cell into proteins of their own. Ozone destroys most viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA.
Activated Oxygen penetrates fabrics to destroy those odor-causing germs at the source.
When combined with UV lights it kills odors and germs within MINUTES!
