Meriwether School District’s Journey to Reducing Absenteeism with CASPR Technologies

In a proactive move to prioritize student and staff safety, the Meriwether County School System in Georgia embarked on a journey to enhance disinfection protocols and reduce absenteeism ahead of the new school year. This initiative involved the installation of cutting-edge disinfection technology units from CASPR Technologies across the district, aimed at safeguarding against pathogens, mold, and viruses like influenza and SARS-CoV-2.

Phase One: Implementing CASPR Transit Units

The journey began back in 2021 when CASPR Transit units were installed on Meriwether’s entire bus fleet, effectively reducing absenteeism among bus drivers and improving overall student and driver health. 

Mickie Samper, Director of Transportation, noted a significant shift, “with the CASPR Transit units, we have seen a reduction in bus driver absenteeism. In addition, we had a driver comment it was the first time in 30 years of driving a school bus that she didn’t have a bus full of sick kids, and a year when she herself didn’t get sick.” 

A stark contrast to previous years, drivers were reporting fewer instances of sick students and themselves remaining healthy. The CASPR Transit units’ success in enhancing the health and well-being of both drivers and students sets the standard for transportation safety in schools nationwide.

Phase Two: Extending Protection to School Facilities

Building on the success of the CASPR Transit units, the district collaborated with CASPR distributor BioShark to deploy a comprehensive array of CASPR units throughout school, athletic, and administrative facilities. 

“CASPR’s technology and products have been proven safe and effective against some of today’s most virulent pathogens,” said Shannon Grube, Principle of BioShark. “As a distributor of CASPR to K-12, we believe this technology is a game-changer for protecting students and staff and helping to improve absenteeism. The beautiful part about the technology is that it continuously and safely disinfects without chemicals, even while people are present.” 

The units utilize CASPR’s proprietary NCC™ technology, converting humidity into safe levels of gaseous hydrogen peroxide to continuously disinfect air and surfaces, boasting an impressive efficacy rate of up to 99.96%. After Bioshark highlighted the efficacy and safety of CASPR technology, the district moved forward with confidence, recognizing the transformative potential of these units in safeguarding the health of students and staff across various facilities.

Phase Three: Observing Positive Impact

As the new academic year commenced, teachers and staff members like Rebekah Cook noticed immediate improvements in air quality and overall cleanliness. Cook, an asthma sufferer, highlighted the relief of breathing easier in classrooms equipped with CASPR technology, anticipating positive effects on student attendance and well-being: 

“I have asthma and breathing isn’t always easy. Since the installation of the air filtration system, I can breathe! My chest doesn’t feel heavy, and I have not had to use my rescue inhaler while setting up my classroom for the new school year. The entire school feels cleaner and smells fresher. I can’t wait to see how this system helps our students and see the positive impact it has on attendance!”

As the school year progresses, Cook eagerly anticipates witnessing firsthand the positive impact of improved air quality on student attendance and overall well-being. The implementation of CASPR technology not only promises a brighter future for students but also reinforces our commitment to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all.

Acknowledging Success and Recognition

The district’s proactive approach to health and safety has garnered recognition, with Superintendent Dr. Robert Griffin expressing pride in the substantial reduction in absenteeism. 

“The implementation of CASPR Technologies has been a game-changer for our district,” Dr. Griffin remarked. “The notable decrease in absenteeism underscores the positive impact of prioritizing the health and safety of our students. We are committed to fostering an environment where students can thrive academically and feel secure in their learning spaces.”

Amidst the educational landscape, the Meriwether County Board of Education stood out as a beacon of excellence, its commitment to student welfare recognized and celebrated at the GSBA Conference where they were honored as an “Exemplary School Board.” Their unwavering dedication to prioritizing student welfare through initiatives and actions have set a standard of exemplary leadership in the education community.

Bus & Transportation Manager, Tandy Janson

Q1: How did you find out about CASPR Technologies?

“A Bus Summit Seminar.”

Q2: When choosing a solution to disinfect your transportation fleet, what were you looking for?

“Something that was high quality, and easy to use.”
Q3: How was the CASPR Technology explained to you?

“It was explained in detail. I was sold after the first three sentences.”

Q4: Why do you think CASPR is the best solution for disinfection on your buses?

“This is a continuous cleaning product. It doesn’t need to be manually done. There’s no physical labor. It’s disinfecting when the bus is full and running.”

Q5: How was your experience with the sales and service team at CASPR Technologies?

“Very helpful, they answered all my questions and were never pushy. Simply told me to look at the data they provided. They’d also update me whenever I wanted and their confidence in their products sold me.”

Q6: Now that you have chosen CASPR Technologies to protect your drivers and students in route, what benefits do you see?

“The drivers, monitors, mechanics, and office staff can all feel the difference in our building. Those with allergies don’t have red, itchy eyes, sneezing, or coughing when they are inside the facility or the buses. I don’t spend enough time with the students to gather enough insight but if it’s anything like our indoor unit, I’m excited to see it.”

Q7: Are you happy with CASPR Technologies? (Sales, Prices, Service, Performance & Support)

“Yes, I look at this as a one-time purchase with the occasional upkeep on the filters that are not even close to the original purchasing price. Over an extended period, the cost would be well worth it as we wouldn’t have to keep purchasing chemicals and towels only to just throw that stuff away and repurchase it again right after. Also, my drivers won’t have to worry about purchasing gloves or getting chemicals on their hands. Overall, we are saving more money with CASPR than without it.”

Q8: What could you say about CASPR Technologies that would be helpful for a school director that is looking for disinfection solutions in their schools?

“Keep track of the time you pay your employees to sanitize the bus twice a day or three times a day, depending on how many schools they service along with the cost of the products to sanitize. Then compare it to the initial cost of CASPR products plus the 2-year replacements. For us, savings started within the first year. If the savings start within 1 to 2 years, it’s worth the money. The CASPR system is continuous, and if you replace the filters and cells every 2 years…It’s forever. It saves us time, labor, and money, while providing a healthier environment.”

Q9: Would you choose CASPR again and why?

“Yes, I have spoken with the assistant superintendent and finance from the transportation department, and we are going to try to get CASPR throughout every one of our schools. We are going to do what we can each year to make sure that our schools have the system throughout to protect our students, our teachers, and our staff.”


Wrapping up this insightful Q&A, it becomes apparent that CASPR Technologies is a notable player in the field of advanced indoor air quality and surface disinfection solutions. With a strong dedication to promoting health and wellness, CASPR Technologies actively contributes to shaping the educational landscape through its innovative products and services. By consistently mitigating the presence of harmful microorganisms and enhancing air quality, CASPR empowers educational institutions to establish safer and healthier indoor environments for both students and staff. Let’s collectively welcome a future of education where well-being takes center stage.


Franklin Avenue Baptist Church partners with CASPR Technologies to protect their congregation

Pastor Luter says that Franklin Avenue’s mission statement is simple: To spiritually impact our families, neighborhoods, city, and state by Exalting the Savior, Equipping the Saints, and Evangelizing the Sinners. On August 29, 2005, the church faced its first big disaster when Hurricane Katrina flooded the original church with nine feet of water. In December 2018, the congregation moved into a brand new 3,500 seat sanctuary with separate areas for children and youth worship services. Currently, Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is still growing in members which have left the church finding new ways to adapt to any potential future disasters.

Because of Katrina, their New Orleans services could be seen live over the internet every Sunday morning for their displaced members. This has proven useful to this day given the pandemic preventing the older generation and the immunocompromised from attending in-person service. Thanks to CASPR Technologies this will no longer be an issue. Ever evolving, FABC has recently decided to partner with CASPR Technologies and take a proactive approach against future pandemics. From Pastor Luter, “We are really excited about the investment we made to continuously clean our air and surfaces for our congregation and staff. CASPR gives us the confidence to open our doors without worry.” After COVID-19, FABC knew action to clean the air would be just as important as disinfecting surfaces. CASPR Technologies provided the perfect solutions as our products continuously disinfect the air and surfaces 24/7.

So, what does this mean for the congregation? It means opening the doors without the fear of spreading illnesses, germs, and having an overall peace of mind. Now, members won’t have to worry about chunky, big equipment taking up a bunch of space. Instead, CASPR Technologies provided a solution that is fully automated, requires little maintenance, discreet, and easily installed into the church’s HVAC system. If the air is on, CASPR is behind the scenes continuously disinfecting and protecting the church.

What changes can be expected with this partnership? Accessible education when members and guest enter the church that will show a short clip on our display screens located throughout the building on how the technology works with door clings at all main entrances of the church. These door clings will provide a QR code for members to scan to learn more about the technology.

Now, what exactly is this new technology? CASPR is an innovative “no-touch” disinfection technology that utilizes a Natural Catalytic Converter (NCC) to create gaseous Hydrogen Peroxide out of ambient air. Hydrogen Peroxide is nature’s natural disinfectant and CASPR recreates that same organic process indoors making it very effective against viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi, VOC’s and even odors. By treating and destroying pathogens at the cellular level on a continuous basis CASPR eliminates the periodical approach, human error and extra labor needed to truly disinfect our indoor environment.

Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is not exempt from facing its fair share of changes and obstacles. However, this has not dimmed the hope of the congregation and the staff. Pastor Luter, since his election, has maintained the church’s vitality. Furthermore, thanks go out to the Trustees, Finance, and Leadership Teams for their proactive thinking and diligent steps in ensuring the safety of everyone at FABC. Prioritizing investment in CASPR Technologies and ensuring the safety of the community remains a top focus, made achievable through the generous support of faithful donor.

Air Quality in Health Care Facilities: Protecting Patients and Health Care Workers

Air Quality in Healthcare Facilities: Protecting Patients and Health Care Workers

By Dr. Margaret Scarlett

After more than three years, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is not the prevailing health concern of Americans. On May 11, 2023, at 11:59 pm, the Public Emergency due to COVID-19 is officially over. (1) What have we learned in these three years? Can’t we just go back to the way it was before the epidemic began in 2020? The answer is NO.

We must go forward. There is no going back. We have learned a lot about respiratory infections in this time period. We have learned enough to provide better respiratory protection for both patients and healthcare workers in healthcare facilities. In the healthcare setting, we learned that bloodborne pathogen standards are necessary, but insufficient, to protect both patients and healthcare workers. We learned that more must be done.

The grim statistics let us know the problems. By April 2023, more than 1.6 million Americans have died due to COVID-19, pneumonia, and influenza since the start of the epidemic. (2) All of these are respiratory diseases. The toll among healthcare workers has been high as well, with increased risks of exposure, and higher deaths than the general
population. (3)

There are numerous guidelines, including droplet guidelines, just not airborne transmission guidance…YET. But there will be. Are you ready? While OSHA has yet to release a standard, increased vigilance in infection control is one significant outcome of COVID-19. Early indicators are that OSHA is likely to include air quality in healthcare facilities. We have learned that enclosed spaces carry a higher risk for the acquisition of respiratory infections. Meanwhile, the Association of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) released an updated position paper on infectious aerosols in October 2022. We are trying to catch up.

Numerous organizations are addressing this issue, including the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. Enclosed spaces in health care settings, and also in transportation, public buildings, and meatpacking industries are being considered.

Droplet transmission guidelines are not enough, we have learned. Aerosol transmission is a concern. For healthcare settings, one nosocomial infection outbreak reported was among six healthcare workers, three of whom did not have direct contact with a child or his mother. No aerosol-generating procedures were performed, and the child was asymptomatic. The child did not cough, sneeze, cry or talk. Yet, the healthcare workers were infected even though more than six feet away from the source of the infected child patient.

All six wore surgical masks and most were at a distance of 6 feet or more without any direct contact. Three did not contact any shared equipment or surfaces. (4) What happened? We have learned that air contains an infective virus, and when the viral load is enough to accessible tissues like the nasal membranes, aerosols can transmit this respiratory disease, COVID-19, from a distance. Droplet or contact transmission just cannot explain this away. Air quality is important.

CASPR Compact Boosts Confidence in Wichita Dental Office Disinfection of Air and Surfaces

Dental offices have long been concerned about hygiene – and not just oral hygiene. Since the 1980s, when the AIDS epidemic was first reported, dental workers have been at the forefront of dental office disinfection and using personal protective gear including gloves, masks and protective eyewear to prevent the spread of infection.

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in early 2020, dentists were rightly concerned about the spread of the virus through routine dental cleanings and procedures. One dentist in Wichita, Kansas, felt compelled to take extra steps to protect his patients and staff.

“Before we knew much about COVID-19, we were very nervous about working on patients,” said Dr. Brick Scheer of Scheer Dentistry. “We wanted something to clean the air and surfaces so the virus didn’t spread. We were looking at air-filtration systems when we discovered the top-of-the-line CASPR Technologies.”

Environmental health care company CASPR Technologies doesn’t provide filtration systems, which only episodically clean the air. Instead, CASPR can provide dental office disinfection through products that continuously attack and kill viruses, bacteria, molds and other pathogens in the air and on surfaces using a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter™ process. CASPR takes in ambient moisture from the air and converts it into microscopic, safe levels of hydrogen peroxide that disperse through the air and on surfaces, killing pathogens along the way.

CASPR can be placed inside a building’s existing ductwork, in acoustic ceiling tiles or as a standalone CASPR Compact unit. Scheer Dentistry has CASPR Compacts in its staff and patient areas.

Dental offices have a unique need for CASPR because dental work creates aerosols. “We have to manage that aerosol closely so we don’t infect our patients and ourselves,” Dr. Scheer said. “CASPR is all about trapping particles and killing them before they can do someone harm.”

Dr. Scheer, who was recently named Dentist of the Year by the Wichita District Dental Society, says that his patients and staff feel good when they see CASPR at work in his office. “We have a lot of confidence in our infection control methods,” he said.

He added that CASPR Technologies’ products don’t just control infections, but his staff and patients have noticed another difference that the Compact units have made. “We have fewer allergy symptoms in our building than when we walk outside or go home,” Dr. Scheer said. “We consider the dental office our safe space.”

Schools May Use ESSER Funds to Purchase Indoor Air & Surface Protection

Did you know that your child’s school may have access to funds that would allow it to install technology that could keep all students and staff healthier?

Through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, ESSER (Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief) funding is the largest investment in schools ever made by the federal government. And the U.S. Department of Education encourages use of these funds to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools. Through ARP and ESSER funds, your child’s school is now able to purchase approved items related to indoor air quality by applying for grants through your state’s department of education.

CASPR Technologies’ environmental health products fall under the umbrella of approved items. CASPR – Continuous Air and Surface Pathogen Reduction – uses a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter™ process to remove harmful pathogens from the air and on surfaces indoors. These pathogens include bacteria, molds, viruses (even the ones that cause flu and COVID-19) and odors.

“We want to keep kids in school because absences impede their ability to learn and succeed. CASPR has been an important tool for keeping our classrooms clean,” said Michelle Haynes, principal of the Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem, which has had CASPR Technologies’ products in place since 2020.

CASPR absorbs ambient moisture from the room and transforms it into safe levels of gaseous hydrogen peroxide, which disperse throughout the room and onto surfaces, killing up to 99.96% of pathogens as proven in independent lab tests. The process takes place continuously, utilizing your existing HVAC system or via tabletop units. CASPR is touch-free and requires maintenance only once every two years. It fights illnesses without you having to think about it.

“CASPR is an excellent choice for schools,” said CASPR co-founder and CEO/CTO Dr. Christophe Suchy. “We’ve seen a lot of anecdotal evidence that it reduces absenteeism and saves money for schools, which don’t have to hire substitute teachers. And our staff at CASPR Technologies can help you navigate the ESSER landscape.”

Let us help you find the right solution for your schools. Contact CASPR Technologies or your local CASPR distributor to find out how CASPR can keep your students and staff safe, providing peace of mind for everyone. For more info, visit

Protecting Medically Fragile Seniors in Long-Term Care – And Staff


When Bas Kervel, manager of environmental services for Menno Place, a British Columbia-based organization providing housing and long-term healthcare for 700 senior residents, was seeking proactive solutions for environmental health during the pandemic, he turned to Lorry Prokopich of Sterasure in Kitchener, Ontario, to research what technologies were available. Once Prokopich showed him the NCC™ technology of CASPR Technologies, for which Sterasure is a licensed distributor, Kervel was sold.

Since its founding in 2016, CASPR (Continuous Air & Surface Pathogen Reduction) Technologies has been a leader in smart environmental indoor technology for healthcare and other spaces. The company’s solutions work to ensure the air we breathe is the safest it can be, adding to our well-being and enhancing our performance in the process. Its award-winning, patent-pending NCC™ technology proactively and continuously disinfects indoor air and surfaces at the molecular level. CASPR has been proven to destroy 99.96% of pathogens both in the air and on surfaces, with an independent lab-proven continuous disinfection process that recreates what naturally happens outdoors.

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sterasure began installing first CASPR Compact Units in common areas and then in the rooms of infected patients. Eventually, they augmented that solution by adding CASPR Blu Tiles in all dining rooms, staff rooms and gathering places. As a result, those stand-alone CASPR Compact units could be brought into the rooms of residents who had particular medical fragility or other co-morbidities.

“During the time before our residents could be vaccinated, we wanted to take a proactive stance to protect their health,” explained Menno Place CEO Karen Biggs. “We had done a research study showing that viruses of various types remained in the rooms of deceased residents for days afterward. Once we installed CASPR, they disappeared.”

Kervel can see the real results in the health of Menno Place’s staff and residents. “Even if we find an outbreak of COVID or another virus, those appear to be shorter lived, and they rarely result in transmission elsewhere in our facility. Traditionally we’ve had to deal with periodic occurrences of norovirus and gastroenteritis, but since installing CASPR we haven’t had any of those.”

Menno Place’s 11.5-acre campus includes six buildings, with accommodations for Independent Living, Assisted Living and Complex Care. Staff found that by adding an air and surface disinfection solution in the dining room and other common areas, they mitigated the possibility of their more mobile residents spreading illness between rooms or corridors.

Biggs found some additional benefits beyond the boost to resident health.

“We have really worked through the pandemic to preserve and promote the mental health of our staff and adding the CASPR Blu Tile units to our facility has given our team members the peace of mind to know they are working in the safest environment possible,” she said.

Menno Place found that it could reduce staff absenteeism, minimize sick time and help with more effective room turnover with the installation of the CASPR Blu Tiles, which are made to fit in the place of ordinary acoustic ceiling tiles.

Additionally, the state-of-the-art air disinfection reduced odors throughout the property, which is a common issue for all long-term care facilities.

“We found that CASPR reduced odors almost immediately in rooms such as locker rooms or staff rooms, Biggs said. “Rooms that had mold smells for years became odor-free.”
Sterasure has used success stories such as this to bring CASPR to other long-term care facilities across Canada.

“Our technology was created to serve the medical industry,” said CASPR co-founder and chief inventor Dr. Christophe Suchy. “It is such a logical extension of our technology to share it with the long-term care industry where so many of our most medically fragile loved ones reside.”

CASPR’s award-winning technology is now being used not only in medical environments, but in schools, businesses, residential complexes and even in the transportation industry. Recent independent studies have concluded that the technology provided by CASPR is more than twice as effective as any competing technology.

Allergies – The Story of Christophe Suchy on Founding CASPR Technologies

Everyone loves a good origin story. Here is CASPR Technologies’. 

Dr. Christophe Suchy is allergic to “just about everything.” Nasal allergies really affected his quality of life, so about 20 years ago, he decided to do something about it. Dr. Suchy used his background in chemistry to invent environmental health technology that not only combated his allergies but eliminated pathogens indoors. CASPR Technologies, the company Dr. Suchy co-founded, offers air and surface disinfection technology that kills up to 99.96% of viruses, bacteria, molds, odors, and other harmful pathogens from indoor air and surfaces. 

CASPR products work in a building’s air ducts or as standalone units that can sit on a tabletop or fit in an acoustical ceiling tile space. CASPR takes ambient moisture from the air and puts it through a proprietary Natural Catalytic Converter™ process that converts that moisture into microscopic molecules of hydrogen peroxide, which are then dispersed throughout the building. The molecules attach to pathogens in the air and on surfaces, disinfecting both in a continuous process.

CASPR differs from other air purification technologies on the market in two important ways: First, the technology cleans air and surfaces continuously, as opposed to a filter, which episodically removes particles from the air; and second, it also protects surfaces from harmful bacteria and viruses. CASPR’s revolutionary technology is the only continuous intervention that delivers effective oxidizing molecules to all surfaces including walls and floors, reducing bioburdens 24/7.

“CASPR technology disinfects air and surfaces, killing harmful viruses including SARS-CoV-2 and bacteria including MRSA, making it perfect for any building in which people gather,” said Dr. Suchy. “We’ve seen incredible success with the products being used in hospital and other medical environments, schools, gyms, retail and restaurants and even transit systems including buses, trains, and ferries.”

With CASPR, Dr. Suchy doesn’t suffer from his nasal allergies anymore. To learn more about CASPR technology and how it can work for you and your business, go to or click here to contact a CASPR representative.

CASPR Creating Safer Environments in Large Retail Medical Clinics Nationwide

Since its founding in 2016, CASPR (Continuous Air & Surface Pathogen Reduction) Technologies has been a leader in smart environmental indoor technology for healthcare and other spaces. The company’s solutions work to ensure the air we breathe is the safest it can be, adding to our well-being and enhancing our performance in the process. Its award-winning, patent-pending NCC™ technology proactively and continuously disinfects indoor air and surfaces at the molecular level. 

And while the company’s technology is based on work created for the medical industry, it has applications far beyond healthcare, to locations in retail, commercial real estate, institutions and more. Recently, CASPR has found itself returning to its medical roots in a new way, serving clients in the country’s largest chain of retail medical clinics with a major footprint in the American retail landscape.

CVS Health has installed CASPR technology in all of its more than 1,100 MinuteClinic® locations inside select CVS Pharmacy stores across 35 states and Washington, D.C. CASPR helps keep MinuteClinic safer by reducing harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs in the air and on surfaces. 

CASPR works with the ambient air in your environment to create oxidizing molecules that neutralize pathogens in the air you breathe and on surfaces you touch. The technology was originally developed for use in hospital settings to prevent illnesses from being passed around between staff and patients and has been found to reduce hospital-acquired infections and employee absenteeism. Recently, an independent lab tested CASPR technology against air and surface purification units from two other companies and found that CASPR’s models topped out at a 99% reduction in pathogens compared to its competitors’ 45% reduction.

The models used in MinuteClinic are CASPR Compacts, a plug-and-play solution that does not require any installation. Despite its small footprint, it is still up to 99.96% effective in reducing pathogens. Its silent and continuous operation provides full-size protection in a compact solution. CASPR Compacts sit on a pedestal that spells out what the technology is doing to keep MinuteClinic® patients and providers safer.   

The CASPR Compacts were installed at MinuteClinic by New Hampshire-based Environmental Disinfection Solutions. Ken McCarthy, president of EDS, says he has installed the technology in a wide variety of businesses, ranging from MinuteClinic®, dialysis clinics, hospitals, schools, regional transportation and restaurants. 

“We applaud CVS in taking the lead in providing a safer environment for the customers and employees,” McCarthy said. “Having real-world results makes it easy to be passionate about CASPR’s technology, and how it helps keep our people and indoor spaces safe.”

“With technology rooted in healthcare, our solutions are designed to bring peace of mind that comes with disinfected indoor spaces,” said Dr. Christophe Suchy, CTO and chief inventor at CASPR Technologies. “Being able to help protect MinuteClinic patients is a success story of which we’re really proud.”

Patients come to MinuteClinic for wellness essentials ranging from general physical exams, women’s services and vaccines to specialized care for chronic conditions such as diabetes and sleep apnea. 

Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer, MinuteClinic and Vice President, CVS Health, says the providers she has talked to have been enthusiastic about CASPR’s presence in their clinics. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on everyone over the past two years, and at MinuteClinic, patient and provider safety has always been our highest priority. Our providers are so appreciative knowing their clinic setting is protected by CASPR’s unique technology,” she said. “And our patients can rest easy knowing we are doing everything in our power to keep them healthy.”
