Selective Micro Technologies demonstrated pure chlorine dioxide successfully kills Carbapenem Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae at greater than 99.9999%. The test was also conducted according to EPA registration standards using active ingredient at the lowest certified limit (LCL). Test demonstrated successful efficacy at 10 minute contact time.
