Protect Residents & Staff from Airborne Contamination

Aerobiotix air sanitization technology provides a safer assisted living environment.

Isn’t the Air in the Building Clean?

The air coming into your building through the HVAC system is clean when it enters the room.

As people move through your facility, they’re breathing, talking, coughing, sneezing, and shedding skin cells. They are leaving a trail of particulates that carry viruses and bacteria (including SARS-CoV-2, C-diff., TB, influenza, Staph) in the air. These invisible air contaminants and allergens put residents and staff at risk.

About Aerobiotix Technology

Increasing airflow or using HEPA filters can improve air quality but won’t kill germs in the air like Aerobiotix solutions do. Our products use shielded UVC germicidal light, HEPA filtration, and a proprietary photolytic chamber to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, and spores in the air.¹

Use our solutions to:

  • Reduce infections, outbreaks, and hospitalizations
  • Increase environmental safety for residents and staff

Our Products

No need for expensive renovations or retrofitting. Simply plug in our portable products and be assured that the air in resident rooms, activity areas, dining rooms—any space—is being sanitized.

Air Quality  & UVC Light Research

Brought to Light: How Ultraviolet Disinfection Can Prevent the Nosocomial Transmission of COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases

While originally not considered important, the evidence is now clear that SARS-CoV-2 is primarily transmitted in the air. After an outcry from many clinicians and epidemiological experts, it was confirmed that SARS-CoV-2 is an airborne pathogen, and we should consider this the principal mode by which people are infected.

Adequate indoor air quality in nursing homes: an unmet medical need

Remedial interventions to improve IAQ in nursing homes include source control, improving ventilation and deploying air cleaners where appropriate (United States Environmental Protection Agency, n.d.)

Is Germicidal UV Light Safe?

UV light is a naturally occurring phenomenon. In fact, 10% of the sun’s rays contain UV light, which is a form of electromagnetic radiation.

Why invest in air purification for long-term care facilities?

Using air purification and circulation can increase the safety of residents and staff in a long-term facility.

Inactivation of Virus-Containing Aerosols by Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation

The increasing incidence of infectious diseases has prompted the application of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) for the inactivation of viruses. This study evaluates UVGI effectiveness for airborne viruses in a laboratory test chamber by determining the effect of UV dosage…

UV Lights and Lamps: Ultraviolet-C Radiation, Disinfection, and Coronavirus

Given the current outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, consumers may be interested in purchasing ultraviolet-C (UVC) lamps to disinfect surfaces in the home or similar spaces. The FDA is providing answers to consumers’ questions about the use of these lamps for disinfection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Aerobiotix technology work?
  • A pre-filter cartridge first captures larger particles to ensure optimum efficiency of the system.
  • A proprietary photolytic chamber slows the travel of particles, providing sufficient time for internal ultraviolet light to inactivate them.
  • The remaining particles, now inactivated, move through a medical grade HEPA filter in the AeroCure 200 (the GermZone 100 does not have a HEPA filter) to trap them from returning to the air.
  • This technology provides a pathogen elimination rate of 99%.
Is there a warranty?

Yes, all products have a 3 year warranty

How safe are UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) products?
  • Unlike many UVGI products currently available, AeroCure 200 and GermZone 100 use shielded ultraviolet light (lamps contained within the units), so there is no exposure of ultraviolet light to people. Therefore, our products are safe to use in occupied spaces.
  • UVGI lamps have been used for many decades in the healthcare industry.
  • UVC treatment is a proven method for sanitizing air, water, and nonporous surfaces.
What do regulatory organizations say about using HEPA and UVGI to combat SARS-CoV-2?

Per the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), recommendations include:

Per Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) recommendations include:

Have these products been tested for effectiveness?
  • Yes, this technology has been tested by independent laboratories: RTI, NIOHIM and Battelle Institute. It has been tested with MS2, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and SARS-CoV-2. Results were consistent in eliminating these airborne pathogens, as well as spores. For test documents, please contact: info@aerobiotix.com.
What are the maintenance needs of Aerobiotix products?

Maintenance will be dependent on the environment they are in, i.e., dust levels, etc. An Instruction Manual is provided with each unit.

  • Cleaning: wipe down exterior of units as needed with disinfectant wipes.
  • Prefilter Cartridge Replacements:
    • AeroCure 200: replace prefilter cartridge quarterly.
    • GermZone 100: replace the filter approximately every 6 months.

Note: More frequent cartridge changes may be needed in high contamination areas.

 

  • HEPA Filter:
    • AeroCure 200: The HEPA filter will need replaced once per year.
    • GermZone 100: Not applicable.
  • UV Lamp Replacement:
    • AeroCure 200: approximately every 2 years.
    • GermZone 100: approximately every 2 years.
