Fresh-AIRE UV, a world-leader in HVAC Ultraviolet Disinfection Systems, and a licensor to for EcoGroup USA and its EcoPure Aire UV line of UVC products, has successfully completed phase-1 third-party testing of their residential, commercial, and healthcare products for effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19 disease). In the test report titled “SARS-CoV-2 Neutralization by Germicidal UV Light System from Fresh-Aire UV” the systems delivered greater than 4-log inactivation (96.5%-99.99%) on the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 0.5-3 seconds of exposure to Fresh-Aire UV UVC 254nm light systems.


Our tremendous partners at Fresh-Aire UV have been manufacturing proprietary germicidal UV systems for 20 years, and with everything we know about the SARS-CoV-2 virus combined with Bioanalysis’ testing experience, we were confident their systems would be very effective at inactivating the virus. We now have independent verification of the successful inactivation of the SARS COVID-19 virus and an even better understanding of how well our disinfection systems perform within the HVAC system, duct work and on surfaces. We are thrilled as these are the same products as our EcoPure Aire UV line.

The testing was conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis a CAP, CLIA, and AABB certified laboratory (CA, USA). The test was designed to model exposure time comparative to inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the moving airstream within the HVAC or ventilation system. Products tested were the FRESH-AIRE UV ADS™ (duct-mounted airborne disinfection) for commercial and healthcare applications, Blue-Tube XL™ (HVAC coil and airborne disinfection) for commercial and healthcare applications, and APCO-X™ (HVAC coil and airborne disinfection with VOC/odor reduction) for both residential and commercial applications. Phase-2 testing is currently underway.
