Air samples were taken in two locations in an urban midwestern USA hospital setting. The location used was a 5 x 6m active general surgical operating room with standard positive-pressure ventilation. The sampling locations were immediately behind the sterile instrument table. Samples were taken with the C-UVC device in place, but turned off, and then repeated after 30 minutes of the C-UVC device running. In each test modality, air samples were taken every 60 seconds, until the detected particle levels reached a stable equilibrium. Samples were taken in two groups: operating room active baseline, operating room active after 30 minutes use of C-UVC unit.
Objective. To evaluate the effectiveness of a novel in-room air disinfection technology through the use of real-time viable airborne particulate counting.
Methods. Using laser particle fluorescence techniques in real time, airborne viable particle concentrations were obtained before and after air treatment with the in-room C-UVC device (Aerobiotix Tower One) in an active hospital operating room setting.
Results. A large number of viable airborne particles were found in the active positive-pressure operating room setting, with an average of 18628 viable particles per cubic meter in the 1.0-10.0 um diameter range. Thirty minutes after activation of the C-UVC device, the number was reduced to 914 viable particles per cubic meter in the same size range. Reductions were consistent across the particle sizes.
Conclusion. The C-UVC device, when employed as an in-room recirculation unit, provides significant reduction in airborne viable particle levels in a hospital environmental setting. The use of laser fluorescence-based techniques to track airborne viable particulate counts is a valuable tool for the rapid assessment of airborne bioload and the evaluation of air germicidal technologies.
Our Mission is to design and manufacture the very best, highest-quality air purification technologies to improve health, and build better indoor environments globally. - Because individuals everywhere deserve the right to breathe clean, healthy air. Aerobiotix Inc. was conceived around one central idea: Creating healthier environments through proprietary active air management strategies. Our first objective was to target air quality inside the hospital operating room. Our first product, Tower One (T1) was created to fulfill this need. The T1 is the ultimate air purification and disinfection system - the first of its kind. Today, our technologies benefit people around the globe as we have expanded into residential and commercial markets.

NOTE: Products not marketed for prevention or treatment of disease.
The Aerobiotix Tower One (T1) system uses a novel and proprietary air disinfection technology to disinfect large amounts of room air with virtually complete eradication of bacteria, viruses, and spores.
The unit disinfects 450 cubic feet per minute of air,
circulating and sterilizing the air of a typical 20 x 20
room every 8 minutes.
It draws contaminated air from the base of unit and
expels cleaned high volume, low velocity air from the
top of the unit creating a continuous circulation
without disruptive air currents.
At Aerobiotix, we are clean air experts. We have placed state of the art air treatment systems into hospitals, businesses, and homes worldwide. These systems use advanced and proprietary methods to eliminate airborne viruses, spores, bacteria, VOCs and particulates. Our technology includes advanced ultraviolet reactors, which use patented air-sink technology to safely maximize UV dosage, photochemical oxidation using unique zirconium-based catalysis, and cleanroom-grade true HEPA filtration, and real-time laser air particulate monitoring.
