Stoney Creek manufacturer partners with Puraclenz to create an air purifier that combats viruses in the workplace and industrial settings.
STONEY CREEK — Ogena Solutions, a biosecurities and health products manufacturer, announces the launch of the OgenaShield Air Purifier by Puraclenz. Applying a patented version of the same technology used to clean air in the International Space Station, the OgenaShield Air Purifier by Puraclenz is an affordable air purifier for the home and industrial market.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has underscored the need for effective air purifying solutions, especially in workplaces and where people congregate. This newly advanced and completely ozone-free system combines UV light with a patented catalyst cell to effectively and efficiently break down and destroy viruses in the air and on exposed surfaces,” says Ogena Solutions President and Founder Dave Hachey.
Third-party tests purportedly show that the OgenaShield Air Purifier by Puraclenz kills over 99% of the MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2) virus, an accepted surrogate of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the coronavirus disease COVID-19.
The California Air Resource Board (CARB) has approved the OgenaShield Air Purifier by Puraclenz as safe for use in the presence of people and animals.
“We take safety very, very seriously. Since day one of our business, our mission at Ogena Solutions has always been to safeguard animals, people and the environment from pathogens and infectious diseases. We don’t allow any products to enter the market until they’ve been thoroughly tested,” says Hachey.
The air purifier is a partnership with Puraclenz. The newly patented technology behind their air purifiers leverages the power of an advanced form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO). Unlike most air purifiers, the design does not require viruses to pass through the unit but instead the units increase the number of (already present) positive and negative ions in the air where they deactivate and kill pathogens.
In addition, most air purifiers on the market offer no surface deactivation. The OgenaShield Air Purifier by Puraclenz units kill over 60% of viruses on exposed surfaces.
Ogena Solutions offers three air purifier units with coverage ranging from 500 sq. ft. to 3,000 sq. ft. All are commercial grade and ideal for use in businesses such as restaurants, schools, senior housing, manufacturing offices and even agriculture worker housing.
