Testing Ionic~Colloidal Silver

Testing Ionic~Colloidal Silver
We've been wondering … just how long does Ionic~Colloidal Silver remain effective?

Previous testing had already let us know that SOTA Ionic~Colloidal Silver is an effective disinfectant against Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. However, that testing was done using freshly made Ionic~Colloidal Silver.

Would the Ionic~Colloidal Silver remain effective as it aged? Would the parts per million (ppm) change as the solution aged, affecting its ability to successfully neutralize the pathogens?

To answer these questions, we decided to conduct long–term testing of an Ionic~Colloidal Silver electrolyte against three pathogens: Escherichia coli (E. coli), Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Streptococcus pyogenes (Strep). The testing measures the effectiveness of the solution against the pathogens as well as the ppm. To be considered effective, the Ionic~Colloidal Silver must kill 99.99% of the pathogens within 30 seconds of contact.

To date, we've tested our Ionic~Colloidal Silver solution at 0, 3, 6, 9 and most recently 12 months. We are thrilled to say the Ionic~Colloidal Silver has remained effective and it continues to neutralize all three pathogens within 30 seconds. The ppm of the solution has held steady at approximately 9 ppm. The results are encouraging as they let us know that when properly made and stored, Ionic~Colloidal Silver maintains its ppm and its effectiveness over time.

We plan to continue this testing at the 18, 24 and 36 month mark. We're excited to see just how long a batch of SOTA Ionic~Colloidal Silver can last.

Extend the Life of Your SOTA Products

Protect Your LightWorks Hand Paddles
Our units are designed to last years and years, and with proper care you can extend the life of your SOTA units even further.

Storing your SOTA products:
•   Disconnect any cords; store them loosely coiled to avoid causing shorts or damage.
•   Wrap hand paddles in a soft cloth, or give them a sock to wear to protect the lens from scratches.
•   Have a saucer or jar set up near your Water Ozonator to set your airstone in after ozonating water. Allowing it to dry out between uses will extend its life.
•   The best place to store your SOTA unit is in its carrying case; placed where it will be safe from falls. Be sure not to store it in an area subject to humidity or extreme temperatures.
