by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Both antimicrobials and antibacterials act on different types of microorganisms. Antibacterials destroy or inhibit only the growth of bacteria. Antimicrobials destroy or inhibit the growth of all microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. Therefore antimicrobials provide a broader scope of protection than antibacterials. In fact, using plain soap and water to wash your hands may provide greater protection from colds and flu than antibacterial hand soap or wipes. Ban On Triclosan You may remember that […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I feel like I should disclaim this article as not suitable for all audiences. If you’re squeamish, you might be grossed out, and you’ll definitely be more careful about what you touch from now on. The subject is biofilms on hard, non-porous surfaces. Biofilms are communities of microorganisms that are attached to surfaces and play a significant role in bacterial infections. There are either four or five stages of biofilm development. First the initial […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Neutral solutions have a pH of 7.0. Water is an excellent example of a neutral solution. Add a solution to water and the pH (or potential of hydrogen) changes. Your lemonade becomes acidic. Your bicarbonate of soda becomes alkaline or basic. The pH Scale The pH scale goes from 1 to 14 with 7 being neutral. Anything below 7 is considered to be acidic. Anything above 7 is considered to be basic. Because it is […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO I’m seeing so much misinformation lately about what disinfectants can do. The one that reached my inbox that made me laugh most was the one that claimed protection from viruses on surfaces for seven years at a cost of $1,500 per gallon. Seven years? $1,500 per gallon? Really? Even if it were scientifically possible for anything to achieve that kind of protection at a high kill rate, would it really be worth $1,500 per gallon? […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO Using an electrostatic sprayer to disinfect is a way of efficiently killing germs. Electrostatic sprayers work by charging the liquid disinfectant as it passes through the sprayer nozzle. This generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out surfaces, which they stick to and even wrap around to coat all sides. Positively Attracted An electrostatic sprayer can be engineered to produce either positively or negatively charged particles. Most electrostatic sprayers generate positively charged particles, because most […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us many things, but in my mind, the most important lesson is that germs want to survive. It’s basic biology. Germs want to live and reproduce. And that is exactly the reason that viruses and bacteria become immune to antimicrobial cleaning solutions. It’s why “new and improved” cleaners are always being developed using “even stronger toxic chemicals.” And it’s why we must adopt the most efficient ways of killing germs—not […]
by Autumn Ryan, Founder and CEO of Aseptic Health It takes a janitor to know a janitor! I started out as a janitor the day after I graduated from college. What I’ve learned over 20 plus years is that we’ve been brainwashed about safe cleaning. Pine. Lavendar. Bleach. They are toxic. And they are harming our hands, lungs and environment and largely because we don’t read the label. It took the Covid-19 pandemic to alert most consumers to the fact […]
Aseptic Health’s Hospital-Grade Disinfectant Now Used to
Disinfect Emergency Vehicles Against Coronavirus
Ocean County, NJ, New Decontamination Sites Keep First Responders Safe
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 5, 2020) – Aseptic Health’s hospital-grade disinfectant, Aseptic Plus+, has long provided a fast and effective, low-toxicity solution to sanitize commercial and residential facilities. Now, Aseptic Plus+ is also used to disinfect emergency vehicles of first responders against the novel coronavirus, announced Autumn Ryan, founder and CEO of Aseptic Health.
The Ocean County, New Jersey, Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Ocean County Police Chiefs’ Association, has established a decontamination site in Berkeley Township to sanitize emergency response vehicles.
Vehicles are sprayed using ULV foggers with Aseptic Plus+, an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant that is non-caustic, non-corrosive and fragrance-free.
In its first week of operation, the decontamination site serviced over 200 emergency response vehicles, according to Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, who serves as Ocean County Coordinator for the Office of Emergency Management. “The site is set up for any police, fire or first aid vehicle in the county, especially those that have transported someone suspected of having the coronavirus,” said Sheriff Mastronardy.
“It’s important we keep our emergency responders – all of our police, first aid and fire personnel – safe during the coronavirus outbreak,” added Sheriff Mastronardy. “Along with all of our health care professionals, emergency responders are heavily relied upon by our residents. We need to do all we can to keep them safe.”
Sheriff Mastronardy said additional vehicle decontamination satellite sites are expected to be established under the Brick Township Office of Emergency Management and Jackson Township Police Department.
“I appreciate the efforts of all of our police chiefs and all of our emergency responders,” said Sheriff Mastronardy. “These partnerships go a long way in making certain we have what we need to keep our responders safe and to assist our residents.”
Ryan praised the work of Sheriff Mastronardy and the police chiefs for leading this effort to protect their first responders as well as Aseptic Health’s Certified SanitizeIT® Operator in New Jersey for working closely with these officials to quickly launch the decontamination sites.
“In the five years since I founded Aseptic Health, we’ve achieved exceptional, Clinically Clean® results disinfecting facilities in a broad range of industries,” said Ryan. “But the speed and decisiveness of Sheriff Mastronardy and the township Police Chiefs as well as our SanitizeIT team were remarkable in creating an immediate and effective solution to safeguard first responders and the citizens they serve and protect.”

The solution also eliminates odors, allergens and mold and mildew, and is an effective deodorizer.
Aseptic Plus+ is available through its authorized distributors and SanitizeIT operators in the US. Operators use electrostatic and ULV foggers to deliver the fragrance-free product into the air, creating a fine mist that settles on all sides of hard and soft surfaces. The product and disinfecting protocols are used in facilities from 1,000 to one million square feet, including office buildings, distribution facilities, schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, restaurants, gyms, veterinary hospitals and homes. And, now, vehicle decontamination sites.
 Currently, there is no EPA-registered disinfectant with the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) efficacy claim listed on its container label. However, EPA List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 includes products that meet EPA’s criteria for use against the novel coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19. Aseptic Plus+ is a private labeled product included on EPA List N.
