63% of Acinetobacter is Considered Multidrug-Resistant *CDC
Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as a predominant cause of nosocomial infections across the globe.
The past decade showed a remarkable increase in the proportion of A. baumannii strains that have developed antimicrobial resistance. This has ushered in an era of far more lethal infections. Novaerus’ advanced technology destroys bacteria without the risk of creating ‘super bugs’.
Epidemics by A. Baumannii
“Environmental contamination, airborne transmission, patient transfer, and cross-contamination all play important roles in epidemics caused by A. baumannii”

A recent study showed that it is likely that A. baumannii in the air above and around patients has the potential to contribute to infection transmission by airborne contamination and recontamination of surfaces.
