C) NETRA Sterilization System Here we present the “NETRA” sterilization system. NETRA is a compact and PATENTED solution for a comprehensive trolley auto sterilization system. Our system is split into a few simple components; A sophisticated water jet spray system ensures high cleaning power with low water consumption and special grips transport the trolleys or any items through the rotating high-pressure jets guaranteeing maximum cleaning quality as well as an efficiently handle/basket cleaning with specially designed brushes. Handles are cleaned with rotating brushes and hot water. An automatic conveyor system guaranteed for rapid and fast sanitization process. The core of the NETRA’s water sterilization system is the employment of Ozonated water treatment. Ozone, also known as trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O3. Ozone is a unique antimicrobial agent. In fact, it is the most aggressive oxidizing (sic) antimicrobial agent known to man. Ozone is formed by applying electrical energy to the oxygen molecule, which splits some portion of those oxygen molecules in half, into singlets of O. Those single O atoms attach to O2 for a very short time period, becoming O3, which has a half-life in its natural state of about 20 minutes before, on its own, it converts back to oxygen by releasing its singlet of O. During that active phase as ozone, it reacts to any organic compound by oxidizing double carbon bonds. Unlike a lot of other disinfection sterilization technologies, in the act of literally taking a cell membrane apart, in destroying the cell, it converts itself back to oxygen which is a very benign waste product. Chlorinetreated water samples are frequently identified by dead microbes’ cells but treatment with Ozonated water does not present such particles as the cells or any biological contaminants are broken down to its basic elements which are hydrogen and CO2. An ozone sterilizer is able to harness the unique powers of ozone by producing it inside the sterilizer from medical grade oxygen, which is commonly available in hospitals (as explained above, by applying electrical energy to combine O2 with O to form O3). This capability is well-suited for sterilizing even delicate medical devices, like endoscopes, that cannot withstand the high heat and humidity of standard steam autoclaving. Ozone’s bactericidal effects center on disruption of envelope integrity through peroxidation of phospholipids and lipoproteins. There is evidence for interaction with proteins as well [9]. In one study [10] exploring the effect of ozone on E.coli, evidence was found for ozone’s penetration of the cell membrane, reacting with cytoplasmic substances and converting the closed circular plasmid DNA to open circular DNA, which would presumably lessen the efficiency of bacterial proliferation. It is notable that higher organisms have enzymatic mechanisms to re-stabilize disrupted DNA and RNA, which could provide a partial explanation for why, in clinical treatment with ozone at doses prescribed, ozone appears to be toxic to infecting organisms and not to the patient.
