Local company says device could help fight Ebola

The Sanosil Halo The Sanosil Halo
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A machine sold by a Cincinnati company claims to kill a wide variety of surface germs and viruses, including Ebola.

Sanosil Halo is a fogging machine that generates an ultra-fine mist from a solution of hydrogen peroxide and silver to decontaminate every surface, nook and cranny of a room, according to Safety Net CEO Ron Romano.

Safety Net, the local company that sells the Sanosil Halo, recently sent 10 of the units to Nigeria where there has been 20 reported cases of Ebola. The machine uses hydrogen peroxide because it disinfects and is safe around humans and sensitive equipment.

“When we fog a room it does not leave any type of residue. It does not leave a wet surface or anything,” said Romano.

The machine is conventionally used at hospitals, health clinics, daycares and schools. Sanosil is backed and registered with the EPA, according to their web site.

“The technology meets the CDC guidance and can serve as a key element in the fight against further infection from the Ebola virus,” the Sanosil web site states.
