Project Highlights

Disinfectant Evaluation in Healthcare Facilities

The hospital environment allows for the growth and survival of nosocomial pathogens and nosocomial pathogens, like Clostridium difficile and Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, can be found on up to 58% of hospital surfaces. An effective disinfectant is necessary to disrupt transmission of these pathogens, and while disinfectants are usually tested in laboratory settings, see how ESRAC was able to help one client evaluate a disinfectant in a real world hospital setting. Read More

Water Laboratory Alliance Analytical Preparedness Full-Scale Exercise

From June 6-10, 2016, the team at the Environment, Exposure Science and Risk Assessment Center (ESRAC) helped to pilot test new laboratory procedures during a simulated emergency water contamination scenario. Read More

Hospital Field Study of T1 Air Disinfector Recirculator Efficacy Against Viral Tracers

Research has shown that microbial pathogens are commonly transmitted through the aerosol route to surfaces, equipment, and hands in the clinical setting. This project aimed to quantitate the efficacy of the Aerobiotix T1 Air Disinfector Recirculator against viruses in real-time hospital settings
