Scientific Studies: Air Purifiers for Viruses and Bacteria
Air Purifiers for Viruses and Bacteria
Indoor air and surfaces are full of viruses and bacteria. As people come in and out of rooms, touch surfaces, cough and sneeze, the air fills with tiny particles that can cause sickness. From immediate irritation to contracting contagious diseases, this is a serious public and personal health concern. Air purifiers can reduce pathogenic organisms in the air and on surfaces.
There are two core ionization technologies that can impact viruses and bacteria:
- Bi-polar® Ionization
These methods are rooted in scientific principles and leverage cutting-edge technology to clean the air.

Bi-Polar Ionization: Overview
Bi-Polar® ionization may be referred to as cold plasma ionization. Two charged poles, one negative and one positive use low-voltage electricity to split H20 water vapor, creating positively charged ions and negatively charged ions. As with AHPCO, the virus and bacteria are prevented from spreading because their RNA and DNA are interrupted by these ions. This occurs with contaminants that are airborne and those on surfaces like countertops, tables, and door handles.
It also helps clear the air of airborne particulate matter like dust, dander, pollen, and mold spores. This occurs because airborne charged particles attract to one another, trapping other particles in the process until they are too heavy to float and fall to surfaces to be cleaned.
Another positive outcome of bi-polar ionization is a reduction in static electricity in the treated area.
Here are the steps for bi-polar ionization:
- Water vapor is separated into positive hydrogen and negative oxygen ions
- These ions interact with single-cell contaminants, including bacteria and viruses
- Bacteria and viruses spread more slowly due to RNA and DNA interruptions.
STUDY: Reduce H1N1 Using iAdaptAir®
A scientific study evaluated the inactivation efficacy of the Air Oasis air sanitizing device against the airborne Influenza A H1N1 virus. The iAdaptAir® was remotely controlled for this test. The virus load was created according to lab specifications. Upon exposure, the rate of reduction was calculated. The results showed that, within 20 minutes, the viral load had reduced by 99.99%. The iAdaptAir® was proven effective at inactivating the virus.
STUDY: MRSA Using Bi-Polar 2400®
In this study, the challenge bacteria was Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. The testing procedure was set to determine if the Bi-Polar® technology could disinfect airborne bacteria. A fan and two ionizers were placed in the space. Aerosolized solution with bacteria was released into the place and samples were taken at one minute, five minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes. Accounting for the natural rate of decay, after 30 minutes, the Bi-Polar® 2400 reduced MRSA by 96.24%.
STUDY: Eliminate E. coli Using Bi-Polar 2400®
EMSL Analytical performed this study at the Cinnaminson Microbiology Laboratory. Escherichia coli, or E. coli, was released into a test chamber. This chamber was disinfected prior to use and equipped with a fan and two ionizers. An aerosolized release of E. coli ran for 28 minutes (a total of 5mL). Organism collection showed that, after sixty minutes, the Bi-Polar® 2400 had reduced E. coli by 99.23%.
