WellAir, a health tech company that provides indoor air disinfection solutions, has launched its Novaerus Defend 400 in Europe, which combats airborne and surface transmitted hospital-acquired infections such as COVID.
The air cleaning device is CE marked and is 99.9% effective at inactivating airborne pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 proxy virus (MS2 Bacteriophage), MRSA, bacteria, and fungi; while also purifying the air of particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, gases, and odours.
Recent research published in the Journal of Hospital Infection also found that Novaerus air disinfection devices utilizing NanoStrike technology may contribute to the prevention of hospital-acquired infections by reducing the microbial load in the air. The study is the first of its kind to examine portable air cleaning and disinfection devices in an intensive care unit.
“We are bringing the Defend 400 to the European market at a turning point for indoor air quality, as more people are recognizing the role it plays in health and wellness,” says WellAir Chief Science Officer Felipe Soberon. “Given that much of this technology was developed in Dublin laboratories, it is great to see this technology now available in Europe, following a successful U.S. launch.”
NanoStrike’s effectiveness lies in its ability to inactivate nanosized pathogens on contact. The Defend 400’s four-stage pathogen inactivation and filtration process also utilizes medical-grade filters in order to capture bacterial debris, fine and large particles, VOCs, gases, odours, and impurities.
“COVID-19 has focused more attention on indoor air quality and has elevated the importance of safer indoor environments by reducing the risk of exposure to airborne pathogens. This is exactly what the Defend 400 is designed to do,” says WellAir President and CEO Todd M. Pope. “This portable device expands our product portfolio, delivering powerful air cleaning in multiple device sizes.”
The Novaerus Defend 400 is ideally suited for healthcare settings but is effective in a wide array of indoor environments, such as schools and offices.
