Note: The test scenarios were designed to observe the ability of negatively and positively charged ions to have a quantifiable effect on pathogens. The studies were done in a small sized environment to control as many variables as possible. When the system is applied to different sized environments, the results will scale with variables present and the ion concentration present. Room size, occupancy rating, how many units are being used, air velocity, furniture, and amount of pathogen in the air will all play a significant factor in the efficacy of the system which cannot be determined based on the outcome of these test reports. Air moves differently in all spaces and as humans interact with the environment, they can change subtle movements of airflow. These studies showed the efficacy of ionization and the ability to reduce a pathogens activity in the air.

Filt Air makes no claims to the overall efficacy of any SterionizerTM product. The experiment results are solely applicable to the device used in the trial in a small sized environment.
