COVID-19 has taken the world by storm, making indoor air quality (IAQ) a high priority for everyone. It’s been our priority since day one.
As a leader in ultraviolet disinfection systems within the IAQ industry, Fresh-Aire UV is proud to announce that we have just completed third-party testing of select residential and commercial systems for effectiveness with regard to neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). For 20 years our goal is – and always has been – to develop leading UV disinfection systems through technology, testing, engineering and product innovation.
“We are confident in our UVC systems’ ability to address surface and airborne pathogens. We are learning more about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and how susceptible the virus is to UVC germicidal energy. With this latest testing, we now have independent verification of the UVC dosage requirements for neutralizing the SARS-CoV-2 virus and an even better understanding of how our disinfection systems perform. We are thrilled.” – Aaron Engel, Vice-President of Business Development at Fresh-Aire UV
About the Fresh-Aire UV Germicidal UV Light System, SARS-CoV-2 Neutralization Study.
The independent testing was conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis, a CAP, CLIA, and AABB certified laboratory (CA, USA). The surface disinfection test was designed to test UVC dosage and model exposure time to UVC light necessary to neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a moving airstream under short exposure times within the HVAC or ventilation system.
Select Fresh-Aire UV residential and commercial systems achieved 96.5% – 99.99% neutralization of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 0.5 – 3 seconds on test surfaces in a laboratory setting.
The Fresh-Aire UV Air Disinfection System (ADS) delivered a 99.99% neutralization of the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 1 second of exposure.
The test was conducted within a 23” UV field surrounding the ADS UVC 254-nanometer system.
