Tersano iClean Mini™
Portable Chemical-Free Cleaning Products Using Stabilised Aqueous Ozone
The Tersano iClean Mini ™ is a handheld antibacterial and antiviral sanitiser that turns normal tap water into a safe, effective cleaner, sanitiser, and deodoriser. Utilising the power of Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) cleaning, the iClean Mini™ is a safe, effective cleaner and sanitiser, stronger than bleach but without the hazardous odours, fumes, or toxic residues that come with traditional cleaning chemicals. With the press of a button, the iClean Mini™ instantly creates an oxidising solution that is safe for people, yet tough on dirt, germs, and odours.

How to Use
How the iClean Mini™ Works
The iClean Mini™ uses normal tap water from the internal reservoir and converts this into SAO™. By injecting a high voltage electrical current into the water, the iClean Mini™ splits the oxygen molecules in the water, transforming it from O2 into O3. When the solution is in this state it is highly effective, clinging to dirt, grime, viruses and bacteria and killing up to 99.999% of all harmful contaminants. The solution can be sprayed directly on to various surfaces and is a very effective cleaner and sanitiser.
Oxygen is converted into ozone then combined with the stabilised water to create Stabilised Aqueous Ozone.
Molecules in the cleaning solution are attracted to bacteria and dirt, destroying them upon contact.
The SAO™ cleaning solution then reverts safely back to water and oxygen.
Suitable for Cleaning Almost Anything
SAO™ from the iClean Mini™ is 100% safe and harmless to use on all kinds of surface areas, including:
- Kitchen worktops
- Food preparation surfaces
- Children’s toys
- Pet care
- Furniture & upholstery
- Carpets and rugs
- Car interiors
Over the past few weeks, Tersano has been conducting lab tests to learn more about Stabilised Aqueous Ozone’s (SAO™) effectiveness against different virus categories. Due to biosafety regulations however, it is not currently possible to directly test against the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) strain of coronavirus.
They have, however, been able to test the effectiveness of SAO™ on the globally approved surrogate virus for COVID-19, Murine Coronavirus/Murine Hepatitis Virus (MHV-3) and are pleased to announce that SAO™ has been proven to kill >99.99% (>4Log) of the surrogate virus with a one minute dwell time!
About the Test Results
Following rigorous tests, which were conducted to the required standards and protocols EN 14476:2015, it was proven that SAO™ was effective in eliminating greater than >99.99% (>4-log) of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surrogate, MHV-3, with a one-minute dwell time.
While testing against MHV-3, the lab also tested against Influenza A Virus (H1N1), Measles Virus and Syncytial Respiratory Virus, all of which belong to the enveloped virus subcategory. Tersano’s SAO™ solution was as equally effective at eliminating greater than >99.99% (>4-log) of these viruses with the same one-minute dwell time as the COVID-19 surrogate, MHV-3.

Why is Testing Against a Surrogate Virus Important?
MHV is one of the only globally accepted surrogates for COVID-19, as stated here and by the World Health Organisation (WHO). This is important to note because it means that not only is MHV-3 in the same family as SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), but it has an almost identical structure, as shown in the diagram below.
Note that, the red box shows a phylogenetic tree of coronaviruses. Next to that tree, you can see the genome structures which make up each strain of coronavirus, of which the 2019-nCoV and MHV-A59 are most similar, and in fact almost identical.
Do I need to wear PPE when cleaning with Stabilized Aqueous Ozone?
The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of SAO™ is 0-0-0-A. The use of protective clothing should be worn at your discretion, to protect you from the organic matter or pathogens you are coming into contact with, not to protect you from the SAO™.
What temperature of water must I use with the iClean Mini™?
Cold water only.
Can I drink the iClean Mini™ solution?
The use of the solution is intended to for the purpose of cleaning, removing stains, deodorising and killing germs. The solution is not intended for consumption, but it will not harm someone if they accidentally swallow it.
Can chemicals be used with the water to enhance the ability of cleaning?
It is not recommended that any chemical be used with the iClean Mini™. Chemicals will eliminate the ozone in the water and therefore defeats the purpose of using SAO™
Is it safe to use on food and food preparation surfaces?
Yes, it is particularly effective in cleaning and sanitising food preparation surfaces. It will clean and sanitise without any chemical contamination of food. Since SAO™ reverts to oxygen and water, worktops do not require post-application rinsing to eliminate potentially harmful residues. It can be sprayed directly onto fruit and vegetables.
