It has come to our notice that companies like SpaceAir FO are advertising disinfection products by falsely claiming its effectives based on our 2020 COVID -19 USF news report regarding the mask disinfection tech developed solely and independently by USF GREEN lab. (Facebook ad here:


We would like to clarify that this is our patent pending technology. We have no collaboration with this company. They are using our information without our permission. The lab is not affiliated with any of these companies and did not test any of these devices. We advise people to test its effectiveness on their own before using it. We do not recommend using a device without testing or FDA approval.
