Removes 99.99% of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) from air and surfaces within one hour
The OHAir Hydroxyl technology has been extensively tested against DNA / RNA based viruses (the approach used in FDA approved testing) – demonstrating that OHAir is effective against a full range of viruses, no matter their protective lipid sheaths. These viruses are a surrogate for COVID-19 – making OHAir a fast and effective treatment solution to this virus.
OHAir is the only technology available that can actively reduce the viral contamination in occupied spaces, reducing the risk of cross contamination. The difference being that the air does not need to pass through the unit – it projects safe treatment throughout the entire space.
OHAir technology has also been through FDA’s rigorous safety and efficacy testing where it provided consistant results of > 99.99% reduction in virus, bacteria and mould within 2-3 hours.
Pictured: FDA testing of MS2 virus, a surrogate for COVID-19. The MDU testing showed a level of efficacy of 99% (2 log reduction) in contamination within 15 to 30 minutes – an exceptionally fast treatment rate. Overall the system achieved a 4 -5 log reduction (99.99% and 99.999%) within two hours – far exceeding FDA standards.
Detergents of the Atomsphere
Hydroxyls (OH) are safe, naturally occurring molecules that are created in our atmosphere when the sun’s ultraviolet rays react with water vapor. They play a critical role in cleaning the earth’s atmosphere and are often referred to as the “detergent” of the atmosphere. They can be utilised to kill bacteria, viruses and mould, and to break down volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemical fumes, gases, vapours and unpleasant odours.
Through the use of proprietary UV technology, OHAir replicates the natural production of hydroxyls to actively eliminate biological and chemical contaminants.
Treats air and surfaces
The OHAir & HQAir units contains a uniquely designed HGU (Hydroxyl Generation Unit) that uses proprietary UV technology to create hydroxyls, which treat the air and surfaces – removing pathogens, odours, mould and volatile compounds.
Hydroxyl technology was first pioneered at NASA for use in the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station, and is now used worldwide. The dynamic nature of the hydroxyl molecule results in the destruction of any bacteria and virus it contacts, by penetrating their cell walls.
