Airborne pathogens persist in hospitals despite hospital-grade HEPA filtration and laminar flow systems due to the fact that the effective range of filtration is from .3 to .1 microns, however the deadliest pathogens are smaller than that. Airocide systems eliminate virtually every microorganism they encounter; 99.999% of them on the first pass. Airocide’s bioconversion technology eliminates bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew and removes harmful VOCs, which result from the constant sanitizing of surfaces.
Studies show that up to 30 percent of hospital-acquired infections result from airborne pathogens circulating in hospital air. Airborne pathogens including methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and penicillum aspergillus are in the air even in environments considered sterile.
State-of-the-art hospitals have recorded astounding reductions in airborne pathogens including those resistant to treatment after installing Airocide bioconversion systems
