How It Works

Airocide — Welcome to the Clear Air Revolution.

Airocide is different from any other air purifier you’ve ever heard of or tried because it’s not a filter. This technology, developed by NASA, clears the air of virtually 100% of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) – the harmful gasses emitted by products you have around your home, like aerosol sprays, cleaning supplies, disinfectants, hobby supplies, dry-cleaned clothing, building materials, paints and paint thinners, strippers, pesticides and even air fresheners. This FDA approved device also completely eliminates all mold, fungi, viruses and bacteria (all major causes of allergy symptoms) that enter the chamber. All that exits is clear, crisp air.

So, how exactly does it do all that?


Airocide draws in harmful airborne pathogens and forces them into a densely packed matrix of highly reactive catalysts that are activated by a high intensity 254-nanometer light. The reaction destroys these harmful pathogens on contact. Nothing is captured so there is nothing to clean. All that exits is crisp, clear air, with zero ozone emissions.

No Ozone - Airocide tested by the State of Wisconsin Hygiene Laboratory and Air Quality Sciences, Inc.
Tests were conducted in August of 2002 with analyses conducted in August and September. The effluent from the Airocide device was sampled and analyzed to determine gas species and concentrations. Ozone was found to be below detectable levels and the volatile organic compounds were found to be very low in the ppb (parts per billion range).
Mycotoxins - Toxic Portion of Mold Spores Decomposition by Airocide tested by
Texas Tech University.
”The Inactivation of Two Trichothecene Mycotoxins Using the Airocide Photocatalytic Oxidation Reactor” – Center for Indoor Air Research, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
The efficacy of an Airocide photocatalytic oxidation reactor in detoxifying the trichothecene mycotoxins verrucarin and roridin A over 3 time intervals was evaluated. Turbidity was measured every two hours by measuring the absorbance at 550 nm in a microtiter plate reader. Results showed that Airocide completely inactivated the mycotoxins at all tested concentrations
Bacillus Anthracis Spores - University of Wisconsin and the State of Wisconsin Hygiene Laboratory tested Bacillus thuringiensis spores with a 99.9986% Kill Rate in a Single Pass.
NASA Published Results.
A total of 60,865 spores entered the reactor and of this inoculum, a total of 5 CFUs exited the device and were collected on the surface of the seven sets of blood agar plates over the 70-min sampling period. After each 10-min sampling period culture plates were covered and labeled. A total of 14 culture plates were incubated overnight at 35 degrees Celsius. The CFUs of B. thuringiensis were counted and recorded for each culture plate.
Self-Cleaning Airocide Catalyst - “Mineralization of E. Coli to Water Vapor and Carbon Dioxide,” tested and published by The National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Whole cells deposited on a titanium dioxide-coated surface have been oxidized in air to carbon dioxide via photocatalysis. This paper provides the first evidence that the organic matter in whole cells can be completely oxidized. Three experimental techniques were employed to monitor this reaction: scanning electron microscopy, C radioisotope labeling, and batch reactor measurements. The scanning electron microscopy experiments illustrate the disappearance of Escherichia coli cell mass. The C radioisotope labeling experiments establish that the carbon content of E. coli is oxidized to form carbon dioxide with substantial closure of the mass balance. The batch reactor experiments corroborate the mass balance and provide a preliminary indication of the rate of the oxidation reaction. These results provide evidence that a photocatalytic surface used for disinfection can also be self-cleaning in an air–solid system.
Peer Reviewed Published Paper - Texas A&M University "Airocide in a Hospital Operating Room."
The authors provide a research study examining the airborne microbial killing efficiency of a unique photocatalytic reactor (Airocide) to eliminate fungal and bacterial pathogens. The study examines baseline bacterial and fungal cultures, commonly known as pathogens.

In summary, the PCR biocide tested system [Airocide] demonstrated the following advantages:

  1. 1)   an efficiently high destruction rate of pathogens,
  2. 2)   no chemical additives,
  3. 3)   no residual ozone,
  4. 4)   efficient energy requirements,
  5. 5)   the ability to oxidize and eliminate volatile organic chemicals and bioaerosols (odors),
  6. 6)   low maintenance and long product life,
  7. 7)   not effected by humid conditions,
  8. 8)   does not affect the HVAC duct flow or pressure drop,
  9. 9)   enhances air mixing with existing HVAC systems,
  10. 10)   installation does not require any room renovations, and
  11. 11)   size and placement will not obstruct normal clinical processes.
