What, it's permanent? We get asked so many questions about our products that we have developed and their uses, especially when it comes to our very own BioTouch.

It's time for the Hotel Industry to Reinvent Itself

Most air conditioning systems don't protect against the coronavirus...

“Ventilation is the key control point for an airborne virus,” said Dr. Julian Tang, one of the authors of the paper. “Based on multiple studies done by the authors, we believe that optimized ventilation is the way to move forward, removing the virus from the air before people inhale it. We think that’s one of the main ways it’s transmitted.” Interesting insights from Adrianna Rodriguez highlighting in USA Today that as temperatures rise and the air becomes more humid, cases o

'Evidence emerging' of airborne Covid-19 spread, says WHO
