Keeping hospitals healthy

Dr. Michael Shannon, colleague Kelly Brown and Dr. Dick Zoutman test the efficiency of ozone in killing harmful bacteria.

Working together at Innovation Park at Queen’s University, Dr. Dick Zoutman, an expert in microbiology and infectious diseases, and Dr. Michael Shannon of Medizone International are collaborating to develop and test AsepticSure, a technology that uses ozone to kill deadly bacteria such as C. difficile and E. Coli in hospitals and other public spaces.

This important innovation, developed through collaboration in commercialization, has the potential impact of saving thousands of lives each year and significantly reducing health care costs.
