Aerus ActivePure Technology Air Purifier Kills COVID-19 on Surfaces in Lab Results
Aerus ActivePure Air and Surface Purifier Provides 99.98% SARS-CoV-2 Surface Reduction Rate in Controlled, Independent Laboratory Studies
Aerus’ award-winning ActivePure Technology is scientifically proven to destroy microscopic pathogens and contaminants on surfaces and in the air and is available in over 70 Aerus products, including the Aerus Medical Guardian cleared by the FDA as a Class II Medical Device 510(k). The Aerus Hydroxyl Blaster with ActivePure Technology is an affordable, mobile, plug-and-purify air purifier that works on interior aerosolized pathogens and surface contaminants. In addition, Aerus is running independent laboratory tests to demonstrate the efficacy of ActivePure Technology on airborne SARS-CoV-2 virus. These results will be submitted to the FDA for review and clearance. Aerus Technology has a 99.9999% kill rate of airborne RNA viruses in just 60 minutes and 99.999% in 30 minutes, as proven with the FDA 510(k) cleared Aerus Medical Guardian with ActivePure, and performs materially faster on airborne pathogens while it simultaneously destroys surface pathogens. The patented, photocatalyst ActivePure Technology in the Aerus Hydroxyl Blaster is the same ActivePure Technology used in the Aerus FDA Class II Medical Device, the Aerus Medical Guardian.
How ActivePure Technology is Different
Air purifiers generally fall into two categories: active or capture-based. As the name suggests, ActivePure Technology is an active-based disinfection solution, which enables Aerus devices with ActivePure Aerus Hydroxyl Blaster with ActivePure Technology Technology to not only disinfect and purify the air but surfaces as well. Aerus’ patented technology uses free oxygen and water molecules and converts them into powerful oxidizers, known as ActivePure Molecules, that are released back into the room, filling the interior space. ActivePure Molecules continuously seek out and destroy the room’s pathogens and contaminants in real time, 24 hours a day. Capture-based air purifiers do not work in real time and are only effective against the contaminants that are captured and killed through a HEPA filter, carbon or ultraviolet light. These units, by design, are only partially effective at reducing some of the airborne pathogens and are not effective at treating pathogens on surfaces. Other devices, such as bi-polar ionization, have questionable results as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
