Air purification by plasma-generated cluster ions (PCIs) relies on a novel technology producing hydrated positive and negative ions. Phenomenological tests have shown strong evidence of lethal effects of the PCIs on various micro-organisms. However, the mechanisms of PCI action are still widely unknown. The aim was thus to test the bactericidal efficacy of PCI technology on common indoor micro-organisms and to explore possible PCI mechanisms of action. According to time/dose-dependent… CONTINUE READING
