THE ONLY DENTAL CLINIC IN CANCUN TO COUNT ON THIS ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY - BASED ON RESEARCH BY NASA, IMPORTED DIRECT FROM THE United States.
Introducing the next line of defense and peace of mind for our dental patients in Cancun
Our dental Specialists are the only dental Clinic in Cancun to count upon the latest air filtration technology based on research by NASA to add another level of sanitization to their clinical surroundings.
ReSPR technology does what no normal purification system can to continuously control fine air particles, airborne bacteria, VOCs and surface pathogens – safely
ReSPR revolutionary space-station tested technology stands out for its ability to attack gases and bacterial threats proactively throughout the whole air purification chain. It uses up to 5 natural processes to actively recreate fresh, outdoor air conditions in an eco-friendly way.
ReSPR technology has been proven to be more effective than chemical solutions at destroying harmful airborne and surface bacteria, viruses and fungal spores including norovirus, MRSA, E. coli, Streptococcus spp. It uses two types of ionization to reduce particles, and UV light and a catalyst to create oxygen and hydrogen-based friendly oxidizers to reduce microbial contaminants and reduce odors.
The science: Independent tests show that ReSPR is green and energy efficient and treated air is 99.999% free of harmful microorganisms, circulating as fresh air.
Based On Research By Nasa
ReSPR was developed for space missions to control ethylene gas, the natural aging & ripening accelerator emitted by plants that is highly damaging to them in enclosed spaces. The tiny particle size of the gas (below 0.3µm) meant that no existing filter could control it, apart from ReSPR of course.
Sample Test 1: Pathogens – Reduce up to 99.99% of mold, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Multiple, independent tests show how strikingly effective surface results are in just 24 hours on common bacteria & fungi including Ecoli, Streptococcus & MRSA.
