CASPR disinfection technology kills 98% of SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces within six hours and 99.99% within 24 hours, according to a recent study conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

According to a recent study conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, CASPR 1000 In-Duct disinfection technology kills 98% of SARS-CoV-2 viruses on surfaces within six hours and 99.99% within 24 hours

“…CASPR’s technology uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) process to naturally extract oxygen and moisture from ambient air and then produce and continuously deliver trace levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to disinfect indoor spaces,” said a company spokesperson. “The result is an automated and continuous reduction of air and surface viruses and bacteria in a way that is safe for use in spaces occupied with people and pets, and with no need to modify existing custodial processes.”

Pure Barre Franchisees Use CASPR Technology to Help Get Back to Work

Even before COVID-19 struck, Pure Barre franchisee Adrienne Boss was taking steps to ensure the sanitation of her Nashua and Bedford, New Hampshire studios.

“We were proud to be recognized among the cleanest and healthiest exercise facilities in the region,” explained Boss, “but we wanted to remain on the cutting edge of best practices.”

The company initially brought in an in-duct disinfection unit from CASPR Group. They secured the services of Environmental Infection Prevention to do three rounds of independent biological testing. The results blew them away and justified their investment. Despite the studio’s intensive hygiene practices, the tests revealed a 90-99% reduction in pathogen levels on surfaces and in the air.

However, March 17, 2020, her Pure Barre studios were forced to close. She used the interceding time to further prepare her gyms for safety for her staff and her members. She additionally installed CASPR Pro Mobile at each of her studios, and spent time to educate her staff and her members about the added steps she was taking to secure their safe environment.

“When we were able to reopen on June 3rd, we were able to retain all of our staff,” said Boss. “I was elated that they felt safe in our environment, and they were able to help us share this information with our members. Having a state-of-the-art disinfected space helped us to maintain memberships when others were losing them.”

Boss has experienced other added benefits, as well. She loves the clean, fresh smell that occurs with a continuously disinfected studio space, and so does her members. Her team has used this as a marketing advantage.

“Because we’ve explained air and surface disinfection to our guests, we have been able to educate and really shape opinions,” explained Boss. “We wanted a better solution that was continuous and didn’t rely on additional training for our staff, and this was it. We are disinfecting the air and every surface rather than just filtering the air like other solutions.”

Now, Boss represents just two of over 100 Pure Barre locations across the US that have installed CASPR solutions. They found the product helps differentiate the Pure Barre brand with a commitment to providing the cleanest and healthiest spaces for their loyal members and staff.

CIP Invests in Cleaner Air & Surface Technology for Apartment Communities

CIP Invests in Cleaner Air & Surface Technology for Apartment Communities

CASPR Hospital-Grade Disinfectant Technology in Elevators, Common Areas Create Safe and Clean Environment to Protect Residents from COVID-19 and Other Communicable Diseases


DALLAS – April 7, 2021 —  Aspire at CityPlace, a brand-new ultra-luxury apartment and townhome community developed by Commercial Investment Properties (CIP) in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, will open to residents in June with a state of the art system designed to continuously clean the air and surfaces throughout the common areas. The buildings are installing CASPR disinfection technology in all three elevators and common areas including the grand, two-story lobby with sunken lounge, 24-Hour fitness center, entertainment suite and work from home spaces.

“We like working with industry leaders who are innovating in the health and wellness space,” said Todd Wiggs, Senior Vice President, Sales and Business Development at CASPR Group. “It is a beautiful property and CIP distinguishes themselves by making the investment to provide a safer indoor environment for their residents by providing continuous technology to ensure safer air and surfaces. The Aspire at CityPlace team has been outstanding to work with on this project”.

Commercial Investment Properties has installed the CASPR – Continuous Air and Surface Pathogen Reduction — technology in the apartment community, located in Woodbury, Minnesota, during initial construction. CASPR has been awarded “Innovation of Excellence” by NASA for their work on healthcare. Using their healthcare grade technology, the developers installed small individual units inside elevators and larger units in HVAC ductwork throughout the common areas.

“We’re committed to our staff and residents in delivering a safe and clean place for them to live their lives”,” said Tom Schleich, Commercial Investment Properties’ CEO. “The future of apartment development demands the creation of safe spaces where our guests can live, work and play. We believe strongly in CASPR’s technology and plan to use it in forthcoming developments as well.”

Unlike disinfection processes that use an episodic ultraviolet (UV) light or harmful chemicals, CASPR’s technology uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter process to naturally extract oxygen and moisture from ambient air and then produce and safely deliver continuous trace levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to disinfect indoor spaces. The result is an automated and continuous reduction of air and surface viruses and bacteria in a way that is safe for use in spaces occupied with people, pets and plants, and with no need to modify existing custodial processes.

“Being able to offer clean, healthy environments for everyone is our mission at CASPR Group, and having the technology at work in Aspire at CityPlace will benefit residents and guests immensely,” said Dr. Christophe Suchy, co-founder and chief inventor of CASPR Group. “Our technology has been proven to kill 99.99% of SARS-CoV-2 viruses within 24 hours, which gives our customers peace of mind and a safe environment to meet the needs of those they serve.”

CASPR wins GSA Approval

CASPR Group Approved by U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)
Being on the GSA schedule will make it easier for schools, government buildings to purchase and install CASPR solutions that kill COVID-19 pathogens

DALLAS – May 26, 2021 – At a time when the cleanliness of our indoor air and surfaces has never been more important or front-of-mind, a disinfectant technology that kills the virus that causes COVID-19 has become easier for government entities to purchase and install.

CASPR Group, which provides Continuous Air and Surface Pathogen Reduction technology, has been given U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) approval to sell its disinfectant technology to government entities such as public schools and government buildings.

“We’re very excited to be on the GSA schedule,” said CASPR Group CEO Scott Wheeler. “This will make it seamless for government buyers to get CASPR products. The GSA approval recognizes that our technology has been vetted and verified by the U.S. government, and proves to buyers that it can be trusted.”

Now that CASPR technologies are on the GSA schedule, they will go into GSA Advantage, a site for government buyers to have access to the products without having to engage in a bidding process. They’ll also go into a GSA catalog available for viewing through the GSA’s eLibrary site. The Sin Code is 333415HVAC.

The CASPR team is proud to announce that John Halinski of S&R Investments, a service disabled veteran-owned small business, is its exclusive dealer for GSA contracts.

“Mitigating the threat posed by COVID-19 is of the utmost importance, especially in places like schools, some of which haven’t been able to open since the virus began. CASPR does that in a set-it-and-forget it installation,” said Halinski. “But it’s not just today that we need to be mindful of our indoor air; CASPR will be ready for the next virus that comes along, and the next flu season.”

New Study Finds Two-thirds of Consumers Are More Likely to Patronize Restaurants and Businesses That Practice Air and Surface Disinfection

Study Reveals a Need For Restaurants, Offices and Mass Transit to Create and Actively Promote Environmental Safety

Even with inoculation levels rising and the number of new COVID-19 cases declining nationwide, restaurants, retail, mass transit and other businesses are seeking ways to encourage employee and customer confidence about returning to public environments.

A recent study conducted for Texas-based CASPR Group by New Orleans-based research group MDRG worked to gauge the importance consumers place upon air and surface disinfection. The study looked at key consumers in office buildings, public transportation, and retail environments and found clear patterns emerged that affect a consumer’s willingness to engage.

Several key findings emerged:

  • Two thirds of respondents are more likely to patronize a restaurant with an air and surface disinfecting solution over others.
  • Nearly 70% of public transportation users are willing to pay more for ticketing if air disinfection equipment is installed.
  • Over half of respondents felt that air disinfection solutions would still be important following the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Once aware of the existence of air and surface disinfecting technologies, most respondents increased the importance of those technologies when compared to other options (masks, hand washing, social distancing, etc.)

CASPR has now been able to help businesses find a way to install a solution that is effective against both viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces for free. The SBA recently revised rules for PPP utilization to include devices that affect sanitation, social distancing and worker safety.

When COVID-19 made working in offices, restaurants and retail stores challenging, technological leader CASPR Group moved to apply its medical-grade solutions for continuous air and surface disinfection to a broader range of buildings, sensing the public demand for solutions that eliminate up to 99.6 percent of contaminants, including bacteria and viruses.

“Working with customers in a variety of industries, we’ve found that our clients are using CASPR technology not only to create the safest indoor environment for their guests, but as a competitive advantage as their industries work to recover from the pandemic,” notes CASPR Group CEO Scott Wheeler. “We want to make sure that their investment in the world’s most innovative technology for air and surface disinfection gets noticed by the people who benefit from its installation.”

Texas A&M University-Commerce and CASPR Group Team Tackle COVID-19

Sweeping agreement reached to install COVID and MRSA-fighting technology to protect the university’s athletics department and athletes

COMMERCE, TEXAS – Texas A&M University-Commerce and CASPR Group announced a partnership which will see the Lion Athletics install CASPR’s award-winning disinfection technology throughout the school’s athletics facilities.

The A&M-Commerce Lions are flagship members of the Lone Star Conference and represent the university in Division II intercollegiate sports. The Lions are represented by nearly 450 student-athletes in 14 sports.

“CASPR technology has quickly established itself as a Best in Class partner for Lion Athletics and our institution,” said A&M-Commerce Director of Athletics Tim McMurray. “Throughout this pandemic, we have placed safety, health, and risk mitigation as our highest priority for our student-athletes, coaches, and staff. It is a true point of difference that CASPR is aligned with us on these guiding principles.”

“We are excited to partner with Texas A&M University-Commerce as they tackle the challenges of this pandemic,” said CASPR CEO and TAMUC alum Scott Wheeler. “More and more universities recognize that the entire environment must be treated, air and surface, if we are going to win the fight against COVID-19. It also helps that the technology works against bacteria, such as staph, especially within an athletic environment.”

Under the agreement, CASPR technology was installed throughout Lion Athletics’ facilities to provide 24/7 continuous disinfection to the lobby, meeting rooms, offices and locker rooms for all sports including Football, Basketball, Soccer, Softball, Golf, Volleyball, and Track & Field.

CASPR technology was installed within TAMUC’s existing HVAC systems to treat a majority of the air and surfaces within the facility. Individual portable units were also installed to ensure optimal coverage in hard-to-reach spaces. Independent lab tests show CASPR technology effectively reduces up to 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, and mold, including SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19 and MRSA, the antibacterial-resistant staff bacteria which often plagues athletic facilities.
