WHAT WE DO
As humans, we each breathe over 20 thousand times each day. Without breathable air, a person can survive only 3 minutes. Americans spend 90% of their time indoors.
The emergence of novel pathogens, an increase of airborne pollutants, growing urban populations, and the rise of international travel requires new technologies to provide clean air and surfaces without exposing people to harmful chemicals. Airborne viruses can remain contagious in the air for up to 3 hours.
The Micron Pure™ technology inside of CerroZone™ air purifiers uses ozone and a novel catalyst to inactivate 99.97% of airborne SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) on a single-pass through the machine. Zero ozone is released to the room allowing for continuous use inside occupied spaces.
WHY IT MATTERS
According to the CDC, there are now multiple SARS-CoV-2 variants circulating globally. These most notably include B.1.1.7 in the United Kingdom (UK), B.1.351 in South Africa, and P.1 in Brazil.
The B.1.1.7 mutated version quickly became the most common version of the coronavirus in the UK, accounting for about 60% of new COVID-19 cases in December of 2020.
Preliminary scientific evidence points to new variants, including B.1.1.7, binding more tightly to human cells. The effectiveness of currently authorized vaccines against these and new coronavirus variants is still being determined.
