QuickPure™ Oral Care Appliance

The QuickPure™ Oral Care Appliance cleans the mouth and teeth by irrigation with water containing dissolved ozone. Ozone, which is a potent oxidizer and germ-killer can reduce or eliminate gingivitis, gum bleeding, bad breath, teeth stains, thrush and harmful oral bacteria. As well as cleaning teeth and refreshing the mouth, this inexpensive and easy to use small appliance could save users unpleasant and costly dental treatments and make them more attractive with whiter teeth and sweeter breath. Reducing oral bacteria may help prevent some serious diseases such as diabetes and coronary disease in which oral bacteria have been implicated. Potentially, this appliance could substantially reduce or prevent dental tartar and caries, but this has not yet been confirmed. To use the appliance, the reservoir is removed filled with tap water, and reconnected. Then put the jet irrigation tip in your mouth and press the button. The water flow can be adjusted with the hand-piece.

In summary, the advantages of the QuickPure™ ozone system include:

  • Ozone disinfection is convenient and automatically adjusts for variable water flow and quality.
  • Ozone disinfection does not depend on user compliance.
  • Our ozone system provides failure warning.
  • Ozone is the only disinfectant that can inactivate all pathogens in a short time.
  • Ozone can destroy biofilms and endotoxins produced by bacteria.
  • Microorganisms do not develop resistance to ozone.
  • Ozone does not cause allergic reactions.
  • No problems with accidental ingestion of disinfectant.
  • Ozone disinfects wound sites.
  • Our ozone system enjoys patent protection.

ALAB is looking for a licensee or joint venture partner to do the necessary testing to gain regulatory approval, and to manufacture and distribute these devices.

QuickPure™ Operatory Water Disinfection SystemOperatory Water Purification System

The QuickPure™ water system prevents microbial contamination of water from dental operatory water lines and attached handpieces.

There has been serious concern that microbial contamination of dental office water systems puts dental patients at risk of diseases. The problem of water contamination, especially when due to cross contamination from other patients, is greatest for patients with weak immune systems. Dental water can become contaminated from the water supply. More commonly, contamination results from growth of microbial biofilms on the inner surface of water lines. Such biofilms may include germs introduced from other patients by instrument suck-back. Germs can slough off from biofilms as water passes through water lines. It is not uncommon for water coming out of dental handpieces to have more than one million bacteria per milliliter while the water entering the dental lines have less than 100 bacteria per milliliter.

The QuickPure™ system is capable of dispensing ozone dissolved in water. Studies have shown that ozone dissolved in water kills germs that cause gingivitis, plaque and bad breath. Ozone dissolved in water can also provide a sterile surgical field and sterilizing irrigant, which can be used to kill and flush away bacteria and reduce bleeding during surgery. Additionally, there are no known problems with accidental ingestion of water containing dissolved ozone. Since ozone dissolved in water is an oxidizer, it is expected that teeth may be whitened by exposure to the solution.

The inexpensive QuickPure™ system automatically kills waterborne germs and destroys biofilms where germs can hide and grow. A unit connected to the water lines for each operatory gives an audible alarm if the water should become unsafe.

In addition to the above uses the ozonated water may also be used as a surface disinfectant. As a surface sanitizer the solution could be used on; counters, trays, instruments, hands, radiation shields, chair and most other surfaces where a safe disinfectant is desired. As the liquid dries absolutely no disinfectant residue is left behind. Ozone dissolved in water has been approved by the FDA for use in contact with food and food preparation surfaces.

In summary, the advantages of the QuickPure™ operatory ozone system include:

  • Ozone disinfection is automatic and convenient. It is user friendly.
  • Ozone disinfection automatically adjusts for variable water flow and quality.
  • Ozone disinfection does not depend on user compliance.
  • Our ozone system provides failure warning.
  • Ozone is the only disinfectant that can inactivate all pathogens in a short time.
  • Ozone can destroy endotoxins produced by bacteria.
  • Ozone can destroy biofilms.
  • Microorganisms do not develop resistance to ozone.
  • Ozone does not cause allergic reactions.
  • No problems with accidental ingestion of disinfectant.
  • Ozone kills germs that cause gingivitis and gum bleeding.
  • Ozone can disinfect wound sites.
  • Our ozone system enjoys patent protection.

QuickPure™ Contact Lens Sanitizer

The adjacent photos are of the latest prototype of a battery-powered contact lens cleaner designed to clean and disinfect contact lenses automatically in three minutes. Lenses are placed in the case with a small amount of saline solution. Inserting the lens case into the opening turns on the pocket-sized battery-powered device. Bubbles of ozone then dissolve in the saline solution. After three minutes, the device automatically turns off and a light signals completion of the operation. The lens case can then be removed from the device. The lenses can be removed or left stored in the case, which also has been disinfected by the process.

Recently there have been two major international recalls of contact lens disinfection products. One recall was for Fusarium keratitis and the other for Acanthamoeba keratitis. Keratitis is an infection of the cornea of the eye which can cause serious and painful vision problems, even blindness. Acanthamoeba keratitis is especially serious and Acanthamoeba testing is presently not required by the FDA for marketing of contact lens disinfection products. In response, the FDA organized a two-day workshop in January 2009 to develop a test protocol for killing Acanthamoeba trophozoites and cysts.

At this workshop the FDA announced that it would begin this protocol for marketing products as soon as it is approved. At present none of the multipurpose products on the market effectively kill Acanthamoeba, even after 4 hours. Our microbiological testing has shown that Aspergillis fumagatis, a tough-to-kill yeast, can be disinfected by ozone in 3 minutes. To prove that the QuickPure™ system will also kill Acanthamoeba, Alab sponsored a test program at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Their report showed that dissolved ozone killed 6 logs of Acanthamoeba trophozoites and 4 logs of cysts in two minutes. Click here to view a copy of the University test report.

Advantages of this QuickPure™ system are greater speed, convenience, comfort, safety and antimicrobial effectiveness at lower cost. Dissolved ozone turns back into ordinary oxygen, so there are no chemical disinfectants to cause allergic reactions in eyes. Disinfecting the case can reduce the risk of lens contamination by germs growing in the lens case, which ordinary disinfection may fail to kill.
