QM Providing Support to Combat ZIKA in America and Beyond
The recent Zika virus outbreak has caused concern around the world. We’ve seen more than a 3,000 percent increase in global search interest since November, and last month, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a Public Health Emergency. The possible correlation with Zika, microcephaly and other birth defects is particularly alarming.
But unlike many other global pandemics, the spread of Zika has been harder to identify, map and contain. It’s believed that 4 in 5 people with the virus don’t show any symptoms, and the primary transmitter for the disease, the Aedes mosquito species, is both widespread and challenging to eliminate. That means that fighting ZIKA requires raising awareness on how people can protect themselves, as well as supporting organizations who can help drive the development of rapid diagnostics and vaccines. We also have to find better ways to visualize the threat so that public health officials and NGO’s can support communities at risk.

Innovation and Technology
QM’s design team consists of a team with many years of experience in design. With constant research and development we strive with a burning passion to be the best. Combining elegant design with advanced technological functionality and finished with a touch of luxury. MBOX is designed from the bottom up and is assembled without any screws; with just a gentle twist the MBOX can be disassembled to remove any unwanted “dead” mosquitos. In order to achieve the pinnacle of Innovation and Technology we have done numerous researches and tests on how to retain functionality with an elegant design.
Efficiency and User-friendly
MBOX mosquito trap uses a new and highly effective method to catch mosquitoes. First we have to understand that only female mosquitoes need blood (protein) in order to lay eggs. Female mosquitoes track their victim through CO2 up to a range of 50meters, combined with the sense of smell of H2O, female mosquitoes are very effective in tracking their victim. MBOX mosquito trap uses a new method developed by Akira Fujishima (President of the Tokyo University of Science), this method uses photo catalysis of titanium dioxide (also known as the Honda-Fujishima Effect). When a titanium dioxide surface is irradiated by light, the photo catalytic effect and hydrophilic are activated together. Any organic chemical in contact with the surface will undergo decomposition to CO2 and H2O and thus releasing a highly attractive smell for female mosquitoes. Once close enough the near-silent fan(less than 29db) of the MBOX sucks in the mosquito and prevent it from escaping. Because of the near-silent design the MBOX mosquito trap can be placed anywhere without any harm to its environment, like a baby room/bed room/living room etc.
