The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or COVID-19, is most easily and commonly transmitted by respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected individual talks, breathes, laughs, coughs, sneezes, or sings. These airborne droplets can remain suspended in the air for a few minutes or even hours, potentially exposing anyone who enters the contaminated space. Now more than ever, maintaining good indoor air quality is incredibly important.
While the world continues to grapple with this devastating pandemic, many people are searching for ways they can protect themselves and their loved ones. In 2020, one of the world’s leading biosafety testing facilities, the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), conducted a study on the effectiveness of ActivePure Technology® against the COVID-19 virus.
This study was conducted in an enclosed laboratory setting where high concentrations of the COVID-19 virus were released into the air. In just 3 minutes, the ActivePure Technology inactivated 99.9% of the airborne COVID-19 virus particles.
How Does ActivePure Technology Work?
ActivePure Technology can either be used in portable air purifying systems or installed as part of HVAC systems in residential, commercial, and medical settings. Unlike many other types of purifying systems that require capture or exposure over time, ActivePure air purifying systems release virus-neutralizing particles that instantly break down virus particles in the air and render them harmless.
By immediately inactivating COVID-19 particles in the air, ActivePure technology significantly minimizes the amount of virus that reaches your mask or lands on surfaces around you. This ensures that individuals in a space controlled by ActivePure Technology are surrounded by virus-inactivating air.
Other indoor air pollutants that can be inactivated by ActivePure Technology include:
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
ActivePure Technology significantly improves the quality of your indoor air, helping to alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms, reduce the chances of exposure to viruses, and help you breathe easier.
