The spray is being used in the public transport system in Nuremberg to supplement the existing hygiene measures.

This was preceded by a successful field study in buses in which the Protective Film Spray showed a high and long-lasting efficacy. More than a week after spraying, a germ reduction of around 90% was measured on the handrails, straps, handles and seats of the buses tested. This was achieved in the normal daily use of buses during passenger transport.

In addition to its long-lasting effect, the Bio-Gate Protective Film Spray is skin-friendly and easy to apply. Apart from handrails and handles, spray can also be applied to seats and other textile surfaces. If the technology is applied, e.g. directly after basic cleaning, the hygiene status can be maintained or extended for a longer period of time, since the cleaning and disinfection measures usually do not last long.

VAG in Nuremberg is one of the first to adopt MSBG-Tec impregnation spray in Germany, along with another domestic transport company and customers abroad. Follow-up orders are under preparation. The application of the spray is always verified by a certified test laboratory, which checks the effectiveness of the treatment.

The MSBG-Tec Protective Film Spray has been shown to inactivate enveloped viruses. In addition to the current coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), these include SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and flu viruses. It is a modern concept for more sustainable treatment that enhances the effectiveness of existing cleaning cycles and is suitable for the prevention of COVID-19. The spray also has an antibacterial effect and an odour-binding technology that immediately reduces unpleasant odours in mass transport vehicles.

The use of Bio-Gate solutions in public institutions and local public transport is a forward-looking measure to respond to the second wave of increasing rates of COVID-19 infection. The safety of passengers can be further enhanced, especially in public transport, with additional passive hygiene standards. In addition to spraying, Bio-Gate organises regular hygiene monitoring, which is carried out by a certified laboratory from Nuremberg on a random basis in all means of transport or other public facilities.
