Air scrubbers and air purifiers are great solutions for cleaning the air in enclosed spaces. Recent lab studies have shown that a product by Aerus––the global leader in surface and air purification––is capable of reducing the COVID-19 virus on indoor surfaces. 

Studies Show Aerus ActivePure Air & Surface Purifier Reduces SARS-CoV-2 on Surfaces

Testing data from an independent FDA-compliant laboratory called MRIGlobal established a 99.98% surface kill rate of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in seven hours. The SARS-CoV-2 virus causes the disease COVID-19. 

Considering that researchers at CSIRO have found that SARS-CoV-2 can survive for up to 28 days on common surfaces including paper money, glass (such as glass on mobile phone screens), and stainless steel, these studies from MRIGlobal present a huge opportunity in reducing the virus in our homes thanks to the product from Aerus. 

Here are some other points you should know about these studies:

  • With the Aerus Hydroxyl Blaster, 93% of live SARS-CoV-2 was killed in three hours, 98% surface kill in six hours, even when covered by a protective biofilm
  • With Aerus Medical Guardian, 99.999% kill rate of airborne RNA viruses in just 30 minutes and 99.9999% kill rate of airborne RNA viruses in 60 minutes

How the Technology Works

There are many capture-based air purifiers on the market that rely solely on a HEPA filter, carbon filter, ultraviolet light, or passive PCO to reduce contaminants in an indoor space. However, these units are designed to be only partially effective in reducing some of the airborne pathogens and are not effective at treating the entire air space in real-time. These solutions also do not address the issue of surface viruses or contaminants. 

ActivePure technology by Aerus works to continuously seek out and destroy viral particles the size of the SARS-Cov-2 without the need for a capture-based filter. 

The Hydroxyl Blaster––which was tested in the lab––is a commercial use, portable, stand-alone unit. This type of unit can be wheeled into a large space, safely inject high quantities of ActivePure into a large environment, and reduce pathogens or odor without the need to remove any occupants. Aerus’ results are a gamechanger in the US’s battle against COVID-19. 

A Customized Solution that Mitigates COVID-19

Because the Hydroxyl Blaster is a stand-alone unit using ActivePure, it’s the perfect vehicle to test against COVID. This is a technology that can be used in any ActivePure Air Purification products and it is, therefore, a versatile solution to meet the needs of homes or facilities. From reduced dust and odors to the reduction of germs, bacteria, and viruses––even COVID-19––ActivePure offers the fastest-acting continuous solution to surface and air purification on the market.
