How does ActivePure® work?

In nature, when sunlight hits water vapor, it produces reactive, oxygen-based molecules; these molecules bind with viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and unwanted gases—inactivating them at the molecular level.  ActivePure® makes use of five nature-based processes to produce this natural process but indoors:  

  • Sunlight - for germicidal UV light
  • Rain and thunderstorms - to generate ionization
  • Lightning - to produce activated oxygen
  • Photocatalysis - for hydro peroxides and oxide ions
  • Wind - to distribute these properties into the environment

By reproducing these natural outdoor processes, ActivePure® Technology creates these same air-scrubbing particles and distributes them throughout the room (1) where they pull apart bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and volatile organic compounds in the air, as well as reduce bacteria, viruses, and mold spores on surfaces (2).  ActivePure molecules go on a seek and destroy mission sanitizing the air and the surfaces throughout your indoor environments.  Below is a short video explaining further how ActivePure works. 

Is it safe? In June 2020, the ActivePure Medical Guardian with ActivePure Technology was registered and cleared as an FDA Class II Medical Device after a two-year process. ActivePure Technology is available in over 100 products that meet regulatory standards. Many ActivePure products are certified by the California Air Resourced Board, also known as CARB. ActivePure Technology is trusted by tens of thousands of Californians, including three of the five California Department of State Hospitals, schools, restaurants, dentists and many, many more.

ActivePure is different than other "air purifiers"
(Active vs Passive Technology)

The vast majority of "air purification" systems use passive cleaning technology.  Passive air cleaning technologies require that a contaminant first pass through a mechanism in order to be eliminated from the air.  For instance, a filter draws air through it to capture contaminants.  If the contaminants are not pulled into the air purification system, they a remain in your home, business or school. 

What makes ActivePure different is it uses an active cleaning technology.  Active purifiers, by contrast, are proactive.  If they have a philosophy, it’s “The best defense is a good offense.”  Active Purifiers reduce contaminants in the air without needing to first draw the air through their mechanism; they go to the contaminants rather than waiting for contaminants to come to them (3).  The active cleaning technology is made possible because of the Law of Gases.  The law of gases is what allows you to smell microwave popcorn throughout your house in minutes.

ActivePure Verified by Independent Testing

ActivePure Technology is an effective surface and air countermeasure to viruses and bacteria, with its efficacy based and proven in independent university and laboratory studies. ActivePure Technology has consistently proven its ability to control and neutralize contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, mold, fungi, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in numerous independent studies (see results).  Notably:

  • University of Texas Medical Branch confirmed that the ActivePure Technology inside the Aerus Pure & Clean and the Vollara Air & Surface Pro inactivates 99.9% of airborne SARS-CoV-2 viruses within one minute
  • The Aerus Mid-Range Blaster with ActivePure Technology demonstrated in testing at an unaffiliated laboratory, MRIGlobal, a 93% surface reduction in three hours of live SARS-CoV-2 viruses and a 99.98% reduction rate in seven hours

ActivePure reduces SARS-coV-2 in the air over 99.9% in just 1 minute and on surfaces in 7 hours.

Testing done by a 3rd party unaffiliated laboratory with no connection to ActivePure or its affiliates

ActivePure Technology has been proven effective against a broad spectrum of clinically relevant pathogens.  Every pathogen has a different level of resistance which is outlined in the hierarchy of pathogens below.
