How it Works
ECA (Electro-Chemical Activation) is a scientific process that mimics the body’s own natural process to fight off bacteria and viruses. When the body comes under attack, its immune system responds by releasing white blood cells and sending them to the invasion site. These cells produce a mixed oxidant solution (HOCl) that is highly effective in eliminating microbes and pathogens.
Mechanism of Action
The free ions in HOCl rapidly react and denature proteins. HOCl should not be used on protein based products, since it will react and destroy proteins. Once HOCl comes in contact with a microorganism, it attacks the bacterial proteins located in the cell membranes.
HOCl superiority is in that HOCl will eradicate similarly the antibiotic resistant strains including MRSA and VRE. Secondly, because of the osmolarity difference (the concentration of ion in the solution versus in the cytoplasm), HOCl will induce a rupture on the cell membrane leading to cell lysis.
