Global Plasma Solutions: A Proven Solution Against COVID-19

Thursday, July 30th, 2020

Global Plasma Solutions recently announced their industry-leading ionization testing results, demonstrating a 99.4% reduction rate on a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surface strain within 30 minutes, the first instance in which an air purification company has effectively neutralized SARS-CoV-2. This is great news for anyone who has been looking to purchase an air purifier recently. From commercial buildings to aircraft interiors, it looks like this is the beginning of a new gold standard for air purification.

The elimination of this Coronavirus was done via Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NBPI) technology. What this means is that this air purifier uses an electronic charge to create a high concentration of positive and negative ions. These ions attach to harmful pathogens inactivating them and help particulate stick together, subsequently become easier to filter. It’s as simple as that!

This is good news. With our technology and your vigilance, we can work to make indoor environments healthier and more breathable. Whether you’re a commercial space or a concerned member of the community, give us a call if you need help.
