Do Intellipure® air purifiers kill COVID-19?

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Intellipure® has conducted a series of tests to show the efficiency of DFS technology on the capture and permanent removal of airborne viruses and bacteria.
  • World-renowned Infection Control expert and an advisor to the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the World Health Organization, Dr. Syed Sattar, conducted his studies in a chamber that was built to follow U.S. EPA guidelines.  
  • DFS technology was proven to remove from the air a proxy virus for SARS-CoV-2 (RNA virus MS2)1: The results of this data show 99.987% elimination in 10 minutes of the surrogate which is .03 micron in size. The test also showed that there was 100% elimination in 45 minutes and again 100% at 24 hours indicating no reintroduction of the proxy virus.
  • Intellipure can't promise to prevent you from getting COVID-19. We recommend that you review COVID-19 related information from the CDC and other reliable resources for more information.
