In the laboratory study, Innovative Bioanalysis designed a test to mimic ionisation conditions such as those in a commercial aircraft’s fuselage using Global Plasma Solutions NPBITM technology to mitigate contaminants.
The goal was to increase the efficiency of the HEPA filters already being used in aircraft’s to protect against SARS-CoV-2, which can be small enough to pass through HEPA filters when attached to particles less than 3 microns (3μ) in size.
Based on viral titrations, it was determined that at 10 minutes, 84.2% of the virus was inactivated, at 15 minutes, 92.6% of the virus was inactivated and at 30 minutes, 99.4% of the virus was inactivated.
GPS NPBITM technology has also been rigorously tested to meet additional Aviation standards, including the RTCA/DO-160 standard for zero EMF, line noise and avionics interference, as well as being the only purification system to receive the UL 2998 Ozone Free Certification.
NPBITM technology is now approved and available on all aircraft manufacturer platforms, makes and models.
The Airius PureAir+ Series is an air and surface purification and airflow circulation fan system, designed to deliver the highest level of pathogen, particle and odour elimination in any type of indoor commercial or community environment.
Featuring the latest in Needlepoint BiPolar Ionisation (NPBITM) technology from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of indoor air quality systems – Global Plasma Solutions, the PureAir+ Series uses the power of ions to provide continuous round-the-clock sterilisation, neutralising up to 99%+ of all known pathogens, VOCs and odours, in both the air and on surfaces.
The PureAir+ also provides all the features and benefits of the world’s most popular destratification and airflow circulation fan, balancing temperatures, improving comfort, reducing heating and cooling costs and cutting carbon emissions.
The PureAir+ Series integrated GPS NPBITM system emits a high concentration of positive (+) and negative (-) ions, which are circulated into spaces via the fan.
The polarity of the ions attracts them to all particles within the space, causing the particles to cluster together and make them filterable. They also bond with and neutralise pathogens, VOCs and odours by removing them of a hydrogen atom, breaking them down into their basic, harmless and odourless compounds, such as O2, CO2, N2 and H2O.
Multiple studies have been conducted on the NPBITM technology integrated into the Airius PureAir+ Series range, supporting the efficacy and effectiveness of NPBITM systems for pathogen neutralisation, particle reduction and odour elimination.

Airius fans are commonly used to purify air and balance temperatures for both heating and cooling applications in a wide variety of environments – from offices to aircraft hangars.
Adding an Airius PureAir+ Series air purification, infection and odour control ventilation fan is a simple way to continually clean your air and surfaces, creating a safer and healthier environment for you, your staff and your building.
