RESEARCH AND REFERENCE
How Coughs Travel:
"The most difficult disease transmission route to guard against is airborne because we have relatively little to protect us when we breathe,"
Source: Herek Clack, U-M research associate professor of civil and environmental engineering.
"In the air, the team found that the virus can stick around for at least three hours...the findings will amplify concerns about airborne transmission, which some experts had not considered possible."

WHY MICRON MATTERS
While HEPA and other standard air filters go down to 0.3 microns, viruses are 100 times smaller than bacteria and are typically at 0.004 to 0.1 microns in size. By comparison, that is 3 to 75 times smaller than what available filters can treat.
Micron Pure™ is designed to be effective at inactivating viruses at this tiny scale (SARS-CoV-2 is approximately 0.125 microns). It continuously treats air to inactivate airborne pathogens in hospitals, offices, public spaces, and homes. 3rd party testing of the initial prototype unit at ARE Labs showed >99.99% removal of all particles even those just 1⁄2 the size of SARS-CoV-2. Testing at MRIGlobal showed a 99.97% inactivation of live SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).
