After that, we measured the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in coated places, including the waiting room, examination room and endoscopy room.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The amount of ATP decreased the day after the treatment in each room, and of note is that the amount of ATP was still low after 6 months and 12 months.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Our current data showed the possible efficacy of air catalysts against bacteria and virus in the healthcare facility.</p> Ikuma Kasuga, Yoshimi Yokoe, Sanae Gamo, Tomoko Sugiyama, Maiko Noguchi, Michiyo Tokura, Mayumi Okayama, Rei Nagakura, Takayoshi Tsuchiya, Atsushi Sofuni, Takao Itoi, Osamu Ohtsubo ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajb2t.com/index.php/AJB2T/article/view/172 Thu, 05 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000
