Ozone gas as a virus decontaminating agent

Hudson et al. (2009) have developed an ozone gas-based portable apparatus to decontaminate the buildings such as the rooms in health-care facilities, hotels, etc using the anti-viral properties of ozone. They tested against 12 viruses, which include influenza, strain H3N2, etc., and including the mouse coronavirus (MCV) in DBT cells. They observed that at the peak ozone gas concentration of 20–25 ppm, it required only a short-period of high-humidity (relatively humidity of >90%) t...

Ozone 'vaccine' protects tomatoes against fungal attack

The team, led by microbiologist Dr Ian Singleton and plant biologist Prof Jerry Barnes, of Newcastle University, has shown that exposing tomatoes to ozone before infecting them with fungus reduced lesion development by up to 60 per cent - potentially increasing the shelf-life of the fruit by 2-5 days.Presenting their findings today at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference 2011, Dr Singleton said the ozone was behaving like a vaccine - triggering the tomato plant's defences and...
