The recent pandemic and ongoing air quality issues have strengthened aeris’s commitment to delivering the best protection against airborne illnesses. In order to ensure that our devices are meeting the highest standards, we enlisted Aerosol Research and Engineering Laboratories to test the aair Medical Pro’s ability to remove airborne viruses and bacteria directly from the air. We were extremely pleased by the results.
About Aerosol Research and Engineering Laboratories
ARE Labs was formed in 2009 to provide specialized testing and research in the field of aerosol sciences. Their staff is composed of experts in the fields of chemical, mechanical & electrical engineering, biology, chemistry, and physics who have practical experience in the fields of aerosol physics, aerosol chemistry, formulation, inhalation toxicology and aerobiology. ARE has a history of delivering accurate and unbiased results.
MS2, a RNA virus which is a substitute for SARS-Cov-2 was released in aerosol form inside of a stainless steel bioaerosol chamber. MS2 bacteriophage was used for its similarity to the SARS virus and its ability to show how other pathogenic viruses could be handled in real world settings.
The first time the MS2 aerosol was released, the device was turned off. Afterwards, the device was turned back on and the test was conducted three more times with the aair Medical Pro running at the highest setting.
Samples were taken from the chamber at 15 minute intervals over a 45 minute timeframe.
Following each test, the chamber was purged for a minimum of twenty minutes and analyzed to see how much the particle concentration had changed.
After only 15 minutes, 99.86% of the MS2 aerosols were removed from the air. Over the entire 45 minute time span, the aair Medical Pro was able to achieve a net reduction of 99.99% of MS2 pathogens.
The COVID pandemic has made clear the urgency and importance of proper air filtration. Airborne diseases travel by aerosol, tiny particles of pathogens suspended within a gas. Left unchecked, these aerosols can travel long distances, spreading illness to greater numbers of people. Buildings that recirculate air without proper filtration are potentially spreading the aerosol germs throughout indoor spaces.
The best defense against the spread of these indoor pathogens indoors is increased ventilation and high level air filtration. The results of the ARE Lab tests demonstrate the ability of our aair Medical Pro Device to remove over 99.93% of the MS2 aerosols from the air.
While COVID cases are beginning to wane due to increased vaccination, the unfortunate reality is that new airborne diseases are likely to emerge in the coming years. Climate change, globalization, and urbanization have all contributed to an environment that will likely make pandemics more common.
But air quality is not only about protection from contagious illnesses. Pollution is responsible for an array of health concerns including heart, lung, and brain issues, and even premature death.
With an aair Medical Pro Device you can be sure that your family is getting the highest level of protection against indoor pollutants so that you can all breathe easier.
