NoviSphere systems are cost-effective, high-performance UV-C pathogen eradication devices that can either establish a new rarified environment or re-establish an existing one. The NoviSphere devices integrate components and purification technologies based on proven scientific methods that eliminate biohazardous viral bacteriological material and other airborne contaminants from enclosed spaces of any size. They continuously run to remove airborne pathogens from the environment, greatly reducing contaminations and risk of infection.

How It Works

Short wavelength UV-C light is a well-proven method for disinfecting air and environments, killing or inactivating microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. The effectiveness depends on several factors: the length of time the microorganism is exposed to the UV-C light; the intensity and wavelength of the UV radiation; the presence of the UV-C shielding particles; and the microorganism’s ability to resist UV-C exposure.

The NoviSphere system is specifically designed to address all of these factors, using germicidal 254 nm UV-C lamps to kill up to 99.999% of airborne viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. The unit’s high-intensity fan draws in external air, directing it to the proprietary internal sanitization zone, where baffling and high pressurization is used to expose pathogens to the high-intensity UV-C lamps for the optimum length of time, ensuring viruses and bacteria are killed. Once the air is purified, it is expelled back into the environment. Our systems run 24/7 to allow for continuous air sanitization.

Independent Testing Proves Efficacy

The NoviSphere system was tested on live coronavirus by researchers at the University of Minnesota with an established record in Aerosol Science and Engineering. Their results confirmed the NoviSphere system is 99.999% effective in killing airborne pathogens.

The results were so noteworthy that a full report has been published in the journal of the American Chemical Society’s Enviornmental and Science Technology branch.

“Intense UV-C light has a proven track record of virus inactivation in aerosols. Published papers in Aerosol Science & Technology show it is particularly effective against single-stranded RNA viruses. Coronaviruses – and more specifically, SARS-CoV-2 – are single-stranded RNA viruses and would be highly susceptible to UV-C activation. Sealed, ducted UV-C sources with flow rates above 10 CFM are an effective approach.”

The CDC’s recommendation for ultraviolet germicidal irradiation refers to ASHRAE’s position on airborne infectious diseases, which states:

“ASHRAE will continue to support research that advances the state of knowledge in the specific techniques that control airborne infectious disease transmission through HVAC systems, including ventilation rates, airflow regimes, filtration, and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI).”

ASHRAE suggests two UV-C strategies: installation into air handlers or ventilating ducts and irradiation of the upper air zones of occupied spaces with shielding of the lower occupied spaces. These strategies work to sanitize the air in a space while keeping occupants safe from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light.
