Testing the iWave Against Viruses
This test was run using the iWave-C (GPS-DM48-AC) in a test designed to mimic ionization conditions like that of a commercial aircraft’s fuselage. Based on viral titrations, it was determined that at 10 minutes, 84.2% of the virus was inactivated. At 15 minutes, 92.6% of the virus was inactivated, and at 30 minutes, 99.4% of the virus was inactivated.
This test was run in a test chamber in a lab setting with the Nu-Calgon iWave-R Air Purifier P/N 4900-20. A petri dish containing a pathogen is placed underneath a laboratory hood, then monitored to assess the pathogen’s reactivity to Needle Point Bi-polar Ionization (NPBI) over time. This controlled environment allows for comparison across different types of pathogens.
