CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - August 27, 2014) - Union Dental Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UDHI) www.uniondental.com/ir -- a provider of multi-state dental services for union members as well as two Joint Venture arrangements with Drinkable Air, Inc, announced today with Drinkable Air the Nationally Certified Water Tests Lab of the Green Ozonator.
The tests were originally established to mirror the procedures prepared for use in a dental operatory and the water was going to be tested every hour. Dr. Green decided that it would be more beneficial to have the testing parameters more difficult than a dental operatory setting making the results attract the attention of academic partners as well as the Dental and Regulatory agencies.
While we will distribute these tests results to generate additional interest in our product, the Company will continue additional testing at the Micro Biology Dept at a Florida University. The conditions for these tests will mirror those found in a dental operatory. This will give the ADA another comparable analysis of data from an unbiased third party. Having a third party from a Florida University certify our findings will also go a long way in Tallahassee with the Florida Health Department.
The test used tap water and the Green Ozonator was set up in the testing area of Drinkable Air's factory. The temperatures during testing were in excess of 90 degrees, far exceeding the conditions of a dental operatory. Instead of purifying the water on an hourly basis, Dr. Green requested only 4 treatments from the Green Ozonator in an 8 hour period (half of the recommended use in an operatory).
Even under these harsher conditions, The Green Ozonator reduced the Bacterial Colony Count (BCC) on average of 64%. These excellent results were obtained knowing that the half-life of ozone in water decreases at higher temperatures. At 85° F the half-life of ozone in water is only 12 minutes. The tap water only had ozone in it for 12 minutes over a 2 hour period yet still decreased the BCC count 64%. For a copy of the results, please contact Union Dental.
Dr. Green stated, "I wanted the conditions to be the harshest environment to test the abilities of our product. Now that I am armed with these test results, I can facilitate and move forward in the next steps in relationships I have established with Academia, the ADA, and the Health Department in Tallahassee. I look forward to providing additional updates as these meetings and negotiations materialize."
Steve Kairis, President and CEO of Drinkable Air, Inc. published the results to Dr. Green after receiving the Certified Results from Spectrum Labs. He believes the Green Ozonator goes far past the dental market. "While Drinkable Air and Union Dental knew the applications of ozonated water for the dental lines, the recent articles discussing the deaths of 4 patients in a hospital in South Carolina that was a result of tap water shows the benefits of our product in the medical field. I am excited to work with Dr. Green in facilitating and developing this huge market potential."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...
