Rentacs Srl has developed an innovative sanitisation method and protocol for the reduction of bacterial and virus loads present on surfaces, walls, floors, commonly used objects such as keyboards, mouses, screens, handles, etc.
This method has been used with succes in Italy during the Covid-19 outbreak. Swabs were taken before each treatment of control surfaces such as floors, buttons and keyboards of automatic ticket dispensers, keyboards, washbasin surfaces, electric hand dryer buttons, arms of benches, etc. In regard to what can be deduced from the samples taken it is clear that the “no touch” sanitisation method completely eliminates surface contamination on all the surfaces sampled. The values found after treatment are compatible with the limits for sterile environments.

The swabs are delivered to an ACCREDIA certified laboratory which conducted the test following standardised protocols.
The aerosol spreads rapidly over every cm² of free surface present and volume of air, without producing moisture, rust and residues. The DRY-FOG with the disinfectant product causing the destruction of the bacterial membrane and preventing the bacteria from reproducing.
The radicals liberated by the hydrogen peroxide breakdown the DNA, RNA and proteins of the bacteria and viruses. The small size of the compounds of the disinfectant increases the nucleation effect in the cytoplasm of micro-organisms. This is why the bactericidal effect is increased 1 million times (106) compared to normal treatments.
We do several checks to make sure the disinfection will be succesfull.
First of all we test the humidity with a humidity meter, to make sure this is up to the right level.
Second we use measure strips to measure the amount of disinfectant.
When this is all at the right level we set the dry fog for the right amount of time to destroy the bacteria and virusses.
At the end of the sanitisation operations samples are taken from the same surfaces to verify the elimination of bacterial loads.
The swabs are delivered, along with the pre-sampling, to an ACCREDIA certified laboratory which conducted the test following standardised protocols.
The RENTACS DRY FOG system has been used and can be used in spaces and surfaces in public and private places such as:
