UV Research & Studies

In a presentation for Harvard Medical Grand Rounds, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), recently acknowledged that “there is much more aerosol than we thought.” What does that mean and why does it matter?

Droplets vs. Aerosols

Airborne infectious diseases spread via droplets and aerosols. When someone sneezes, for example, you may see expelled droplets. These “mini-cannonballs” fly through the air relatively short distances before landing on surfaces or on someone else—possibly in their eyes, nose, or mouth. Aerosols are microscopic droplets that remain floating in the air, circulating throughout indoor environments—for extended periods of time just waiting for someone else to inhale them.

Cleaning the Air with UV

Because the larger droplets fly short distances they can be eliminated with normal surface cleaning, for the most part, but for every one large droplet you see there can be thousands of infectious aerosols still floating or traveling in the air like cigarette smoke. In an enclosed area it’s not so easy to avoid cigarette smoke. And the smoke can build up over time. Now, think of people sneezing, coughing, talking, laughing, singing, or just breathing, and imagine those invisible, potentially infectious aerosolized pathogens (the “smoke”)—a growing pathogen load—collecting in your space (possibly much more aerosol than you thought). This is where UV comes in and why it has been used in human healthcare settings for close to a century. When those pathogens make contact with ultraviolet light, the DNA of the infectious microorganisms is disrupted, killing the pathogens or rendering them harmless, thereby “cleaning” the air.

Researched, Tested, and Study‑Backed

But here’s the tricky part—not just any UV can effectively clean the air. That’s why Aerapy UV is researched, tested, and study-backed with proven results, not only for air cleaning but also surface cleaning to help disinfect areas missed after normal cleaning.

Independent laboratory testing showed Aerapy UV killed more than 99.9% of tested virus and bacterial pathogens, including SARS‑CoV‑2

Tests conducted by independent labs showed Aerapy UV killed more than 99.9% of tested virus and bacterial pathogens. Tested viruses include SARS‑CoV‑2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID‑19), and covered the spectrum of hardiness in the environment and satisfied six key factors to meet all combination for viruses.

University study
found to reduce pathogenic airborne concentrations up to 99.96%

Aerapy UV system was found to reduce airborne concentrations of pathogenic surrogate and vaccine strains up to 99.96% in this study conducted by University of Arizona’s College of Public Health, Environment, Exposure Science & Risk Assessment Center. Tested pathogens included Bacteriophage MS2.

Field study shown
to reduce upper respiratory infections
by 87.1%

Upper respiratory infections (URIs) in animal subjects were found to have decreased by 87.1% when Aerapy UV air disinfection systems were operated continuously in this three-year retrospective observational field trial using Aerapy in the HVAC system and Aerapy’s patented Zone360 upper air UV system. This study is published in the November 2020 issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
