Why Filter-Free, nUVo™ Virus-Targeted UVC Air Disinfectors are BETTER than Air Purifiers

Let’s Clear the Air
You wouldn’t use a Flat Head Screwdriver to tighten a Philips-head screw… would you? Or buy a blow torch to light a candle… right? You certainly could try but those solutions would probably be inefficient at best and dangerous at worst! Tools designed to do one thing usually aren’t the best solutions in performing something else.
For proven, continuous and safe DISINFECTION of airborne pathogens including mold, bacteria and viruses including SARS-CoV-2 and its variants you need the right tool specifically designed to do the job. Let’s be clear. Industrial and Home Air Purifiers are great for collecting and cleaning the air of dust, pollen, smoke, and a host of other common allergens. Some of these purifiers utilize very expensive, short-lived HEPA filters to capture even the tiniest particles including viruses. But then what? You have the hassle and the significant cost of re-ordering and replacing those filters every 3 months before they get loaded with dust and contaminants and lose their effectiveness – add to that the potential danger of getting exposed to pathogens that have been “caught” in a filter but not destroyed.
There is a better way.UVC-254nm light has been in use for over 100 years and is proven to DESTROY and eradicate airborne and waterborne pathogens. Most compellingly, UVC Light became a major component for the US medical establishment in hospitals for the control and eradication of Tuberculosis (TB) in the 1950’s. UVC light, which has also been widely used in municipal and well water filtration over the past decades, works instantly and continuously on pathogenic micro-organisms by breaking their DNA and RNA bonds at the cellular level – destroying their nucleic acids so they cannot replicate, rendering them harmless to their (human) hosts.
nUVo™ Virus-Targeted Air Disinfectors are specifically designed to intercept and destroy airborne pathogens in personal spaces like your car, home and office before they can infect people. The quiet but powerful fans and patent-pending nUVoShield™ UVC Light Blocker technology in both nUVo™ devices work together to safely intercept, draw away and destroy virus-laden aerosols by passing the infected air over fully enclosed, powerful UVC lamps.
nUVo™ was developed during the Covid-19 pandemic to be an extra layer of protection and is engineered specifically to destroy airborne pathogens including mold, bacteria, and viruses, including coronavirus and its variants with 99.9%+ effectiveness in a single pass. There are no noxious smelling, “hit or miss” chemicals, no residues, and no filters to ever replace. Continuously disinfecting the air in your personal spaces with safely enclosed, deep ultra-violet UVC-254 nm light is an unobtrusive, effective, and proven way to lower infection risk anywhere people get together.
nUVo™ TRAVELER and TOWER have also been independently tested and verified by Intertek® and published in their Microbiological Performance Test Report to reduce 94.1%-99.9% of virus, bacteria and mold within 30 minutes in 100 cubic-feet (the size of your car) for TRAVELER and 1,000 cubic feet spaces for TOWER. Microbial reduction numbers will reach even more than 99% across all tested pathogens when the time frame is expanded to an hour.

Unfortunately, recent reports show that the latest Omicron variant, despite showing less severe symptoms, has been reported to be as much as 3.2 times more contagious than the Delta variant which was more than 2 times more infectious than the original, novel coronavirus that surfaced in 2020.
To potentially complicate severity matters, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports in what they describe as the most comprehensive analysis to date, that the SARS-CoV-2 distribution and persistence in the body, heart and brain goes well beyond the respiratory tract and may persist well beyond the initial symptoms. Disabling viruses before they can infect is the extra ounce of prevention that we all need in beating this and future pandemics and finding our new normal. Clearing the air of other pathogens such as mold, bacteria and influenza is another benefit that contributes to healthier indoor environments for everyone not only now but in the future as well.
Personal and Portable Virus-Targeted UVC air disinfection devices for your car and home deliver an extra layer of protection against airborne pathogens and can help make it safer for you, your loved ones and everyone you meet and get together with.
