"Intellipure air purification systems are already being used in hospitals dealing with the coronavirus in Wuhan, the epicenter of the wide spread coronavirus"
"DFS technology to destroy harmful particulate matters such as viruses and bacteria down to 0.007 microns, including the new coronavirus ranging from 0.04 to 0.16 microns"
First discovered in the city of Wuhan in China at the end of last year, the new coronavirus has rapidly spread outside China within a few weeks, resulting in hundreds of thousands infected and thousands of deaths . It has been confirmed that nearly 500 people in the US are infected across the country, while some officials believe the true number is significantly higher considering the unreported cases.
To join the efforts to understand and help individuals and families to combat the world's pandemic of COVID-19, we have done research on the effects of air purification systems on the new coronavirus. The essential question we had asked ourselves during the research was:
"Can an air purifier protect me from the coronavirus?"
Limitations of the popular air filtration techology
Reading through popular media sources will usually say air purification cannot help with the coronavirus because their research mainly focuses on the most used air filtration technology, which is HEPA. HEPA is a term used to describe filters that are able to "capture" 99.97 percent of particles that are 0.3 microns. However, the size of coronavirus particles range from 0.04 to 0.16 microns, which confirms that HEPA will not capture the coronavirus. Another limitation of HEPA filters is that it "captures" particles and not "eliminates" them. The trapped particles will stay on the filters, creating a perfect environment for micro-organisms to grow, which can lead to secondary air pollution. In turn, HEPA filters are not recommended at all in the midst of the current pandemic of coronavirus.
Does this really mean air purifiers cannot combat coronavirus?
The answer is, fortunately, air purifiers can help us combat the new coronavirus if we use the right one. We are lucky to find Intellipure whose air purification systems are already being used in hospitals dealing with the coronavirus in Wuhan, the epicenter of the wide spread coronavirus. Intellipure systems are equipped with their proprietary filtration technology called DFS, which has been tested and proven to destroy 99.99% of particles down to 0.007 microns including micro-organisms such as viruses and bacteria. You can read more about the news article on how Intellipure is at the forefront of the battle against coronavirus in Wuhan, China here.

How Intellipure helped during the H1N1 outbreak
Intellipure air purification systems were the first defense against H1N1, commonly known as the “swine flu,” which caused a pandemic around the world in 2009. The influenza virus is very contagious, easily spread, and can be potentially life threatening, very similar to the coronavirus. Other non-life threatening symptoms related to the swine flu include pneumonia, lung infection, and breathing complications.
The Intellipure Ultrafine 468 was tested in the Guangzhou Testing Center of Industrial Microbiology Lab for virus aerosol purification efficiency, and three trials were conducted; each trial was 60 minutes in duration. The results showed that in all three trials, the Intellipure Ultrafine 468 destroyed and eliminated the H1N1 virus at greater than 99.99% efficiency in less than 60 minutes.
Intellipure can combat the coronavirus
The coronavirus particles range from 0.04 to 0.16 microns in size, which is bigger than the H1N1 particles, in turn proves the Intellipure's ability to destroy and eliminate the virus. In fact, the Intellipure systems are able to eliminate particles considerably smaller than that of the new coronavirus. Each unit is individually certified and tested for the performance to capture >99.99% of all particles down to 0.007 microns.
