With heightened concern about airborne pathogens, US retailer Think Air Purifiers launches an expanded range of products using NASA-developed technology.

The latest devices use photocatalytic oxidation, a process that has been shown to kill viruses, bacteria, volatile organic compounds, molds, fungus and odors. This safe air and surface sanitization technology is listed by the FDA as a Class II medical device.

Using similar technology to that used on the international space station, the enhanced range includes the Airocide APS-200 PM 2.5, and Airocide True Filterless APS-300 models. Now available for home and business uses, the systems provide some of the most advanced air purification approaches available today.

The process of photocatalysis is used to break organic compounds, such as viruses and bacteria, into carbon dioxide and water vapor. The most commonly used photocatalyst is titanium dioxide, owing to its low cost, non-hazardous, and chemically inert properties.

Suitable for elimination of bacteria, viruses, dust, mold, and smoke, the Airocide APS-200 PM 2.5 units produce no ozone or other harmful by-products. The devices draw air into a reaction chamber, where hollow glass rods coated with proprietary titanium dioxide remove any solid or gaseous particles, regardless of size. Further details are available at:

The slightly larger Airocide APS-300 uses the same processes and is suitable for areas that are less than 500 sq ft. Some of the applications include offices, medical and dental rooms, hotel rooms, and spas.

Airocide has recently become ‘the official air purification provider of the Boston Red Sox.’ The manufacturer states that use of these devices can provide relief from symptoms of sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, allergies, asthma, sore throat, and coughing. In addition, their anti-viral properties have attracted renewed interest during the pandemic.
