How the MIOX Purifier "Pen" Works:

Modeled after todays hi-tech MIOX city water treatment systems they make, the MIOX Purifier "Pen" works by creating a brine solution out of untreated fresh water and ordinary salt, then passing a small electrical charge through the solution, which results in a powerful dose of "mixed oxidants" thus the name MIOX. The solution is then poured into untreated water, inactivating viruses, bacteria, giardia, and cryptospordium (which even iodine does not kill), leaving you with SAFE, purified water.

  • No pumping required: Just add water, shake, and press a button.

  • Purifies water without iodine: No health risk or unpleasant iodine taste.

Additional Information:
Approximately 8,000 MSR MIOX Purifiers have been shipped to the US Department of Defense for delivery to various branches of the armed forces. In addition, the purifiers are now available general public. The MIOX Purifier is a miniaturization of the MIOX water treatment system used worldwide for treatment of municipal water. Over 1,000 MIOX municipal water treatment systems have been sold to date, with a combined treatment capacity of over 1 billion gallons of water per day. Prototypes of the MSR MIOX Purifier were field tested in 2002 by the U.S. military forces in Afghanistan and other locations.

The MSR MIOX Purifier occupies only 14% of the space required by a typical portable water treatment filter and is 1/4 the weight. The sleek and compact design is an attractive feature for backpackers or travelers trying to minimize packing volume and weight. The disinfectant solution does not leave an aftertaste at standard doses, unlike chlorine or iodine tablets. Each dose will treat anywhere from 1/2 liter up to a gallon of water.

The device operates by converting a brine (salt) solution via electrolysis. Each purifier utilizes two 3V Lithium camera batteries (included), common salt and a tiny electrolytic cell. The purifier will treat approximately 200 liters of water on one set of batteries. The purifier can be used over and over, making water treatment an inexpensive procedure after the initial purchase. An important feature of using simple salt as the disinfectant source is that salt has an infinite shelf life, so the purifier will still function even if stored without use for a long period of time. (The Lithium batteries have a 7-10 year shelf life.)

The disinfectant will inactivate a number of common pathogens, including E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium, as well as chemical and biological warfare agents. The purifier has passed the EPA Guide Standard and Protocol for microbiological purifiers, achieving more than 10 times the level of inactivation required, even in the EPA's "worst-case" water.

For under $130 you get a military tested and approved handheld version of the hugely successful MIOX water purification system used by municipal water districts that sell for for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Now, that a great deal!


Developed for a wide variety of water purification needs from civilian backpacking and fishing trips to military warfare. Not that most of us will ever need the MIOX Purifier for this reason, it is reasuring that the huge amount of testing this product has undergone far exceeds water filters and water tablets.

Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, a U.S. Government laboratory specializing in chemical and biological warfare agents, has been testing MIOX mixed-oxidant solution since the year 2000. Findings show high efficacy against all agents, including Anthrax spores (remember those after 9/11?). Mixed oxidants achieved up to 99.99% inactivation of the spore, depending on the dose and contact time.

The mixed-oxidant solution also effectively destroyed the bacteria associated with Plague and the viruses associated with smallpox and polio. Mixed oxidants were also extremely effective against the nerve agents Soman (GD) and V-Agent (VX) and the blister agent Lewisite (L).
