    Rapid Air Sanitizer Already Deployed by Several U.S. Universities

    ORLANDO, FL: Third-party laboratory testing conducted by the Aerosol Research & Engineering Laboratories (ARE Labs) showed that the Boski Air Tower portable air sanitizer kills 99.99+% of airborne viruses, including MS2, a non-enveloped virus which is harder to kill than enveloped viruses like Covid-19.

    Boski Air Towers use a strong Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light source, effective optical design and materials and carefully engineered air flow within the unit to create optimum single-pass efficacy against airborne viruses and pathogens. The Boski Air Tower ($249 retail price) extracts airborne droplets in real-time within close proximity interaction. Housed within the tower is a powerful 254 nanometer UV-C lamp, designed to inactivate viruses at the DNA level, emitting safer and healthier air through the bottom of the unit.

    Conducted in compliance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration Good Laboratory Practices as defined in Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Part 58, testing was performed in a 300 cubic ft custom bioaerosol exposure chamber. The Boski Air Tower’s effectiveness was tested at 100%, 50%, and 25% fan speed against aerosolized MS2 Bacteriophage in order to evaluate the device’s single pass reduction of viable bioaerosol. Testing consisted of triplicate trials at the three fan speeds listed above for a total of nine trials.

    The Boski Air Tower works with the 100% fan speed that the company has found as the optimum combination of air flow and virus deactivation efficacy in a single pass.

    Boski Air Towers have already deployed approximately 1,000 Boski Air Towers at Susquehanna University (Pa.) in student dorm rooms music rooms and office space. Other entities that have purchased Boski Air Towers include The University of Colorado – Denver, Stoneham School District (Stoneham, MA) and the University of Texas – Dallas, among others.
