    It’s Time To Look At UV-C Light Air Purification To Combat COVID-19 More Seriously - UPDATE

    Vystar Corporation’s Dr. Bryan Stone, MD, Internal Medicine & Nephrology, Chief of Medicine Emeritus for Desert Regional Medical Center, says that additional measures, such as UV-C light disinfection, are needed to help prevent airborne transmission of COVID-19 and influenza. Vystar Corporation’s RxAir’s patented kill chamber swirls air around its 10 inch UV-C light tubes for an extended period to destroy more than 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including coronaviruses and influenza.Worcester, MA and Palm Springs, CA , Nov. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- “It’s time to look more seriously at UV-C light air purification to help protect against airborne pathogens such as COVID-19, influenza, and pneumonia,” stated Dr. Bryan Stone, MD, Internal Medicine and Nephrology, Chief of Medicine Emeritus for Desert Regional Medical Center, and a member of Vystar Corporation’s (OTCQB: VYST) Board of Directors.The scientific and medical communities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), agree that the primary method of COVID-19 and influenza transmission is via airborne means.1, 2 The cleanest room is instantly contaminated the instant an infected person enters and breaths, speaks, coughs or sneezes. “While face masks and social distancing are good preventative measures, we need additional measures, such as UV-C light disinfection, to help prevent airborne transmission,” Dr. Stone observed. “This is particularly true in severe cold weather areas where recommendations for socializing outdoors or opening windows for added ventilation for extended periods are not practical and/or possible.”The CDC website “verifies that UV germicidal irradiation has been employed in the disinfection of drinking water, air, titanium implants, contact lenses and in the healthcare environment (i.e., operating rooms, isolation rooms, and biologic safety cabinets) for both destruction of airborne organisms or inactivation of microorganisms on surfaces.”3Dr. Stone warns, “It is extremely important to look for UV-C light air purifiers that are FDA-cleared as Class II Medical Devices, such as Vystar’s RxAir 400® and Rx3000® air purifiers. These devices have been tested in EPA and FDA-certified laboratories as being effective and safe. To be effective, units must use the correct UV-C bulb wavelength and intensity and keep the air in close enough proximity to the bulbs for the necessary duration. Many devices that quickly pass air over small, low intensity UV lights are not effective and can give a false sense of security that puts users at risk.”How does UV-C light work on COVID-19? - Coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID 19, are RNA viruses enveloped in a lipid bilayer. 4 UV-C light in the 254 nm wavelength inactivates lipid viruses by damaging their DNA and RNA genetic material.4,5,6,7,8 UV light’s germicidal effectiveness is influenced by UV intensity, which is affected by distance.4How does RxAir UV-C Light Air Purification work? \--The RxAir UV-C light air purifier is uniquely effective because its patented “kill chamber” forces the air to spiral in close proximity around the three 10-inch UV-C tubes for an extended period of time, ensuring the proper 254 nm wavelength dosage for maximum microbicidal activity. 4, 6 , 9, 10, 11 * RxAir 400 UV Light air purifier - inactivates or kills more than 99.9% of airborne viruses and bacteria, providing up to six air changes per hour (ACH) for an 800 to 1000 sq. ft. area. 9, 10, 11 * Rx3000 UV Light/HEPA air purifier - inactivates and captures 99.97% of viruses and pathogens on first pass with four to eight ACH for a 1500 sq. ft. surgical suite or infection control room or four ACH for a 3000 sq. ft. non-surgical room. 9, 10, 11 RxAir air purifiers are portable standalone units designed for use in a single room of a home, classroom, office, healthcare facility, restaurant or business. They can be valuable supplements to heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems by providing rooms with much higher ACH rates than the HVAC system while inactivating, rather than trapping, the pathogens.Dr. Stone noted, “RxAir devices also reduce the number of active pathogens dropping onto surfaces, thus reducing risk of contact transmission. Another significant advantage is that RxAir UVC air purifiers function free of the chemicals, smells and residues that result from spray disinfectants.”Is UV light safe? --UV light is a known carcinogen that can harm the eyes and skin from just moments of direct exposure. RxAir protects consumers from exposure to the UV light by enclosing the bulbs within the unit. RxAir is completely safe for major reduction in ambient level of airborne coronaviruses in occupied spaces. This is a major contrast to UV-C robot- or ceiling- mounted unshielded UV-C lights that can only be used in vacant rooms.UV-C Light and Indoor Air Quality -- Research shows that in addition to viruses and bacteria, allergenic pollens, mold, fungi and harmful pollutants contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) that causes respiratory and heart disease, cancer, difficulty breathing, headaches, dizziness, and asthma.12 RxAir UV-C light air purifiers have been proven effective against harmful viral and bacterial pathogens (including multiple coronaviruses, H1N1, MRSA, pneumonia, strep, TB, measles, influenza, and the common cold), molds, and fungi in addition to neutralizing odors, VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and other indoor pollutants 5, 6, 7.Supplementary vs Primary Disinfection \-- The CDC currently recognizes UV-C light disinfection as a supplementary disinfection method,4 but that may change. Dr. Stone projected, “Just as the CDC recently began to acknowledge that Coronavirus SARS CoV-2 has airborne transmission, I believe they will recognize UV-C light as a primary disinfection method in occupied spaces.”For information on how to become an RxAir/Rx3000 distributor and/or bulk pricing, contact Lee Howley, lhowley@vytex.comFollow Vystar, Rx3000, RxAir and Vytex® news on social media: Twitter: @VystarCompanyRxAir , Coronavirus, Covid, UVLight, UVdisinfectionSources: 1.

    Eagle Hill School First to Use RxAir® UV Light Air Purifiers Campus-Wide to Combat Airborne Viruses

    Vystar Vystar CEO Steve Rotman (left) oversaw delivery of RxAir UV light air purifiers to Eagle Hill School Headmaster PJ McDonald (right) as Eagle Hill became the first school to install RxAir campus wide to help protect against airborne bacteria and viruses. * RxAir® UV-C Light inactivates 99.9% of airborne viruses, bacteria, mold & fungi * Teachers more comfortable teaching in-person with RxAir in use * Vystar offering discounts to education institutions for bulk RxAir orders   Worcester, MA and Hardwick, MA, Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hardwick, Massachusetts’ Eagle Hill School (EHS), a boarding and day school for grades 8-12, is the first school in the country to do a mass installation of Vystar Corporation’s (OTCQB: VYST) RxAir 400® UV-C Light Air Purifier Systems throughout its campus, including classrooms, common areas and dormitories. RxAir 400 air purifiers are FDA Certified Class II medical devices proven to destroy 99.9% of airborne bacteria and viruses, including multiple Coronaviruses, H1N1, MRSA, pneumonia, strep, TB, measles, influenza, and the common cold through extended exposure to high intensity UV-C lights1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. RxAir also neutralizes odors, indoor pollutants, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).Eagle Hill School installed 95 RxAir units —enough for every classroom, resident hall, fitness center, dining commons, and other social common areas. Each portable RXAir unit provides up to six complete air changes per hour (ACH) for an 800 square ft. room to minimize risk of infection from airborne diseases for the school’s staff and students from 31 states and 11 countries.“Eagle Hill is the premier school in the world for students diagnosed with learning disabilities,” stated Dr. PJ McDonald, Eagle Hill Head of School. “All students, especially those with learning disabilities, need and deserve to be taught live and in-person as opposed to online. RxAir is a critical part of allowing that to happen. The difference between the education that Eagle Hill students are receiving right now and that provided to most of the high school students in America is dramatic, and, critically, it will have a lasting and compounding effect in their favor for years to come.” Vystar is establishing an ambassador partnership with Eagle Hill School whereby Eagle Hill will serve as a showcase for peer schools to demonstrate how RxAir UV Light air purifiers can help improve air quality and reduce risk of infection from airborne pathogens, resulting in healthier students and teachers. “Eagle Hill has invested extensive time and resources into ensuring the safety of its students and staff,” noted Steven Rotman, President and CEO of Vystar Corp. and a former Eagle Hill Board member and father of two children who attended the school. “We welcome Eagle Hill as our RxAir ambassador partner to show how to conduct in-person education successfully and safely. We are offering all schools and universities discounted pricing in an effort to help keep in-person education safer and healthier for students and staff.”Eagle Hill’s teachers are thrilled to be teaching in-person. “The fact that our school was willing to invest in UV air purifying technology to create a healthy and safe teaching and learning environment allows me to walk into my classroom each day with confidence and inspiration,” stated Eric Stone, Eagle Hill English teacher. “We are so fortunate to be teaching live and in-person during this pandemic.”The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on October 5, confirmed that COVID-19 can be transmitted via airborne means.7 Concurrently, a group of U.S. scientists more strongly warned in the medical journal Science, that aerosols lingering in the air could be a major source of COVID-19 transmission.8 Microscopic aerosolized viruses and bacteria expelled when people talk, breath, cough and sneeze can hang in the air like smoke for hours waiting to infect one who inhales them. Other airborne diseases include Influenza, pneumonia and other Coronaviruses that cause the common cold. Therefore, continual air disinfection is critical to reduce risk of infection.RxAir’s ability to inactivate airborne pathogens helps create a healthier learning environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that poor indoor air quality “can reduce the productivity of teachers and staff due to discomfort, sickness or absenteeism.” 9Devon Jurczyk, Eagle Hill Director of Facilities noted, “There is no question that masks, distancing, sanitizing, and Covid-19 testing are all critical elements of maintaining a safe environment, but from a physical plant perspective it all starts with the air we breathe. And, importantly, not only does the RxAir’s UV technology kill or inactivate bacteria and viruses more effectively than traditional purifying systems, their filter-less system makes it human-proof. There is no way we would have the manpower or the budget to change out filters as often as would be necessary to fight the virus and we’re happy there are no filters laden with trapped active pathogens to touch.”Dr. Bryan Stone, MD, Internal Medicine and Nephrology, Chief of Medicine Emeritus for Desert Regional Medical Center, and a member of Vystar Corp.’s Board of Directors, concurred, “RxAir is not a substitute for other infection prevention measures, but instead is a valuable complement to infection prevention protocols. The main advantage of RxAir is that it continually swirls air past powerful germicidal UV-C lights for a high intensity dose that inactivates or kills more than 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, mold and fungi.”COVID-19 has disrupted supply chains around the world. As a result, RxAir is currently beginning to fill its back orders for units. RxAir expects that orders placed now will to ship in approximately two weeks. Expedited shipping is available for bulk orders.
