Now and forever, the focus should be on air disinfection,



TORONTO, Aug 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Air purification, the general industry term used to clean the air we breathe. The general perception of the air purification process is air filtration. In the air “purification” industry, it is accepted that the most advanced commercial HVAC / HEPA systems operating at maximum efficiency are only capable of “filtering” up to 99.97% of “particulate matter”. »Airborne as small as 0.3 microns.

Germs, spores, bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, cannot be removed by traditional HVAC / HEPA systems or by adding additional portable air filtration devices. These airborne pathogens are simply too small to be captured by even the most advanced air filtration systems. Deadly airborne pathogens exist within 0.03 percent. Deadly airborne pathogens that are 60 to 300 times smaller than 0.3 microns that the world’s most efficient air filtration systems fail to capture and / or eliminate.

Traditional HVAC / HEPA systems are not designed to disinfect and therefore are unable to remove 100% of pathogens in the air we breathe. The rise of traditional HVAC / HEPA systems with portable air filtration devices that deliver similar or lower efficiency has inadvertently created one of the most prominent public perceptions of the pandemic’s “false sense of security”. It also inadvertently represents one of the largest expenditures of private and public money in a wide range of pandemic-related spending.

The most dangerous airborne pathogens are germs, spores, bacteria and viruses that are simply too small to be captured and removed by traditional HVAC / HEPA or portable air filtration devices. .

The goal of purifying indoor spaces, now and in the future, should be to eliminate 100% of all airborne pathogens and set a new benchmark focused on disinfection of the air versus air filtration. A new standard for indoor air quality that increases efficiency to 100%. A new level of efficiency focused on removing 100% of all airborne particles, including pathogens contained within 0.03%.

Unless a new standard is set for indoor spaces that require the highest level of protection, diseases caused by germs, spores, bacteria and viruses transmitted through the air we breathe will continue to have an impact on our society today and in the future.

The President of AEROBIOVAC Canada and 25 years veteran of the HVAC / Mechanical industry, explains Andy Kostopoulos; “Most indoor residential and commercial buildings with newer equipment have very efficient air filtration systems and offer a high level of efficiency. However, when it comes to protecting the air we breathe and removing airborne pathogens, a higher level of technology is needed, and our focus is shifting from air filtration to AIR DISINFECTION.

AEROBIOTIX Inc. is an American manufacturer of air disinfection systems for medical and health care facilities and their products are currently in use in more than 250 hospitals across the United States. Aerobiotix systems target the elimination of all airborne pathogens from hospitals using a scientifically proven and patented UV photolytic chamber. In October 2020 and at the height of the current pandemic, AEROBIOTIX expanded its scope beyond healthcare to provide indoor air quality solutions to government agencies, long-term care facilities, schools, commercial offices and high density residential environments.

“Aerobiotix technology is a scientifically proven air disinfection system which, when combined with current HVAC and HEPA systems, ensures that 100% of all airborne particles AND pathogens are continuously removed. of targeted domestic airspace, ”Kostopoulos explains.

At the heart of Aerobiotix technology is the exclusive UV photolytic chamber which contains approximately 2,400 transparent quartz tubular elements. These quartz cylinders are randomly oriented to create an “obstacle course” for pathogens as they enter. This effectively slows their path and as the pathogens make their way through the maze they are exposed to two (2) 16W C-band ultraviolet lights operating at a wavelength of 254nm for at least six (6) seconds. This time frame is called “residence time” and forms the basis of the Aerobiotix PI and has been scientifically determined as a primary requirement for breaking RNA codes and removing these pathogens from the air in one pass. The quartz elements let 99.9% of UVC pass and act like a magnifying glass which amplifies UVC up to 3 times stronger than the next competitor. Pathogens need this long exposure time to break their RNA chain.

Kostopoulos explains, “The key piece of Aerobiotix technology and the science that separates the Aerobiotix air disinfection system from all other competitors is their patented technology. The ability to slow pathogens and increase the length of time pathogens traveling through the system are continuously exposed to ultraviolet light.

Aerobiovac Canada is the exclusive distributor of AEROBIOTIX medical grade air disinfection systems. These systems are manufactured in Miamisburg, Ohio. Aerobiovac Canada is currently working with the provincial government to bring manufacturing to Ontario. Providing profitable manufacturing and distribution, keeping the cost of technology and systems as affordable as possible while creating new jobs for our economy is the primary focus of the company.

Filtering out 99.97% of the particles in the air is simply not enough. This 99.97% gives people a false sense of security because it does not eliminate the airborne pathogens that are currently causing this pandemic and future pandemics.

“If we just keep upgrading our filtration systems or portable filtration devices, we will be fighting a losing battle when it comes to ensuring that the air we breathe is safe at all times.” , said Kostopoulos.

Aerobiotix is ​​the ONLY clean air technology that has been scientifically tested and proven to eliminate 100% of all germs, spores, bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in one pass. Aerobiotix is ​​the world’s most scientifically tested and verified air disinfection system with 14 peer-reviewed articles, 3 case studies and 2 white papers to date.

People in general don’t know what they don’t know. “Right now our business is as much in the education business as we are in the air disinfection business, and that’s fine with me,” Kostopoulos said.

NOW AND FOREVER, THE FOCUS MUST BE ON AIR DISINFECTION, NOT AIR FILTRATION. Achieving 99.97% efficiency is not enough, the ENEMY is within 0.03%
