GN MEDI 99.9% antibacterial spray eliminates 99.9 percent of pneumococcus, colon bacillus, and staphylococcus aureus. And Korea Testing & Research Institute checked that it sterilized 99.99 percent of Influenza A virus that is the same RNA virus family as COVID-19.
Nationally Authorized Testing- Inspection and Research Institute, KOTITI checked that the masks' filters worked fine after spraying the antibacterial spray on KF94 masks. They checked filters' functions under criteria, passing the amount of paraffin oil per minute following the test method of KF masks. It was widely known that KF94 masks usually prevent ninety-four percent.
When KOTITI tested pneumococcus after seventy-two hours from spraying the antibacterial spray on the mask, the mask had maintained 99.9 percent of excellent antibacterial function. The spray also eliminates the offensive smell.
