SpectrumX are leaders in proprietary formulations of HOCL (Hypochlorous Acid). Through our partnership with Spectrum Antimicrobials, California, USA we hold various licenses for the use of their unique formulations.
First discovered in 1834, it has taken the technological advancements of Spectrum to, for the first time, produce a stable, efficacious formulation that performs in real world conditions.
HOCL is one of the most versatile chemistries on earth. SpectrumX are focused on the utilisation of HOCL in 3 key sectors:
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) is a weak acid that is produced by our bodies to destroy foreign bacteria and viruses.
Neutrophils are white blood cells that are the first to arrive on site when an invading pathogen is detected. Neutrophils will chase down and engulf the pathogen through phagocytosis. Upon contact, neutrophils release a burst of bactericidal chemicals including its most powerful oxidizing agent, HOCL. This kills the pathogen by tearing down the cell membranes and proteins.
Because it is a naturally occurring substance it is bio-compatible and 100% safe for human use. It eradicates all bacteria, mycobacteria, spores, fungi, viruses – including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
Through our partnership with Spectrum Antimicrobials, California, USA we hold various licenses for the use of their unique formulations in the United Kingdom and Europe. Historically, HOCL has been overlooked by “big pharma” due to the fact HOCL has never previously been able to be patent protected as well as the limitation of traditional production methods.
Did you know:
Spectrum Antimicrobials are the only company in the world to hold a patent on a finished HOCL product – Spectricept. They additionally have created a formulation that not only has excellent shelf life but also maintains efficacy in the presence of serum (blood, salvia, dirt etc). This is key as our product works in real world conditions where all other HOCL producers fail.
The virus responsible for COVID-19 can exist on surfaces for extended periods of time. The exact role and potency of surface transmission is still the subject of much active investigation, but the World Health Organisation’s interim guidance focuses on the importance of reducing the potential for viral contamination in non-healthcare settings. For social or sporting events involving the mass gathering of human beings, this would typically involve deep cleaning and disinfection of all hard surfaces within a room, theatre, stadium to render the area ‘COVID secure’. This area though would fail to remain ‘COVID secure’ once people begin to enter due to shedding contaminants from clothing, skin, and hair. SpectriPOD’s remedy this and have proven to be an effective way to allow large groups of people to safely gather.
Spectricept – the evolution of HOCL
Spectricept is the most potent formulation of HOCL in the world. It has been in development for 30 years.
