There are three ways of pathogen transmission: direct, indirect and by air. The current focus on transmission interventions is through care givers and environmental controls. MAPS has technology that combine UV-light treatments, HEPA and photochemical processes.
To assess the efficacy of a novel Mobile Air Purification System (MAPS) in a clinical setting and determine the reduction in airborne bacterial burden due to MAPS.
