The OgenaShield Air and Surface Purifier by Puraclenz is proven to kill over 99% of airborne viruses and bacteria.

STONEY CREEK — With no end in sight for the Covid-19 pandemic and with the highly contagious Omicron variant causing devastating outcomes, it’s quite clear that existing cleaning, disinfecting and air filtering technologies have been challenged well past their abilities. The OgenaShield Air and Surface Purifier by Puraclenz, is reportedly proven to kill over 99% of airborne viruses and bacteria, over 95% of mold, and over 60% of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid) on exposed surfaces* without using a HEPA filter.

Unlike HEPA filters which require the virus to pass through the filter unit to be captured, the OgenaShield Air and Surface Purifier by Puraclenz reportedly destroys pathogens in the air as soon as they are introduced into the room.

“Although HEPA filters are an excellent addition to any indoor space, a widespread misconception is that they ‘kill’ 99.97% of pathogens in the room they’re in. In fact, the 99.97% rating only speaks to what the filter ‘captures’ from the air that actually passes through the filter. The reality in science is that in the real world, HEPA filters normally only capture approximately 50% of indoor particulates.* In the time it takes a HEPA air purifier to filter pathogens, there are up to 60 minutes that people can inhale toxic pathogens. In contrast, the OgenaShield Air and Surface Purifier by Puraclenz destroys pathogens mid-air and attack as soon as the pathogen comes from someone’s mouth,” explains Dave Hachey, president and founder of Ogena Solutions.

“For us to finally be able to live with Covid-19 and be able to function as normally as we did before the pandemic, it’ll require our workspaces and businesses to be safer places to go. With these purifiers working alongside the other tools that we utilize today we can help everyone get there again. If every indoor space had the technology to be able to kill viruses mid-air and on all exposed surfaces, it would be one of the biggest game changers since the beginning of the pandemic,” said Hachey.

The 2020 patented technology leverages the power of a ‘next generation’ form of Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO). Unlike air filters (HEPA), the design does not require viruses to pass through the unit. Instead, the purifiers increase the number of (already present) positive and negative ions in the air in the room to the point where they kill pathogens.

“We launched Puraclenz to help bring powerful, cost effective and safe ozone-free solutions to everyone who has been affected by the pandemic,” said Chris Dooley, Co-Founder and CEO of Puraclenz. “We are committed to helping create clean air and surfaces indoors for all, something people are more concerned about now more than ever.”
