TANCS technology by Ladybug—Destroys SARS-CoV-2 & more
Proven by science
Our innovative tech is a factory-installed internal component designed to kill microscopic organic matter such as germs, bacteria, and viruses in mere seconds. In fact, in a study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, researchers in the School of Environmental Health at the University of Michigan found that TANCS®-equipped steam vapor systems achieve a greater bacterial biofilm kill rate in 3 seconds than a 20-minute exposure to bleach.
It's time to say goodbye to harmful chemical disinfectants
Cleaning chemicals have unintended effects. We may be poisoning our children. That’s because all products—by law—on the EPA list of products to combat bacteria and viruses are pesticides. And pesticide exposure in childhood has been linked to attention and learning problems, as well as cancer. Even death.
But don't worry
TANCS uses naturally occurring minerals to disinfect
The TANCS reactor chamber is the heart of every Ladybug steam cleaner and is the core technology that has been tested by universities and laboratories across the nation. It features an innovative design that produces electrochemical reactions as water passes through it from the reservoir to the boiler, allowing the water’s minerals to change into millions of nanocrystals.
Saturated steam vapor disinfection vs chemical disinfectants
A diverse assortment of pathogenic microorganisms was rapidly killed by the steam disinfection system; all of the pathogens tested were completely inactivated within 5 seconds.
Efficacy of steam vapor disinfection systems in a hospital setting
The steam vapor device consistently reduced total microbial and pathogen loads on hospital surfaces, to below detection in most instances. Treatment reduced the presence of total coliforms on surfaces from 83% (40/48) to 13% (6/48).
Steam vapor for disinfecting biofilms on environmental surfaces
Compared with chemical disinfection, steam treatment for <1 second a similar level of biofilm disinfection as provided by incubation with 10-ppm sodium hypochlorite (bleach) for 10-20 minutes of contact time.
