Air Disinfection Biosecurity (ADB) improves indoor air quality (IAQ) by disinfecting air and surfaces, and mitigating volatile organic compounds (VOCs). ADB seamlessly enhances:

  • Safety and quality in healthcare and long-term care, commercial and municipal buildings, and transportation
  • Farm-to-table protection and quality of indoor crops, produce, livestock, meat, poultry, eggs, and prepared foods
  • Microbial control in sterile and non-sterile manufacturing

ADB is a proprietary Modulated Dielectric Barrier Discharge non-thermal (cold) plasma technology. Our systems use indoor air circulation to provide constant, safe and proactive disinfection (and VOC mitigation) in the air and on surfaces. ADB technology can drastically improve your facility's IAQ, which will help maintain the healthiest, most productive environment possible.

News: ADB units meet UL2998 (zero ozone) requirement for ozone safety!

The below results are from laboratory testing done in a clean 2,640 cubic foot room (22 foot width x 12 foot length x 10 foot height). Real world results can vary:

ADB: The faster, better pathogen mitigating technology

Our Air Disinfection Biosecurity units were tested in an independent third party laboratory against other popular pathogen elimination products - bipolar ionization, photocatalytic oxidation, and UVC. These results are from a 2,640 cubic foot room (22 foot width x 12 foot length x 10 foot height). ADB dramatically outperformed the other products.

ADB worked significantly faster in reducing viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces. With the aerosolized pathogens, ADB was exponentially better - achieving upwards of 99% reduction when the other methods were only beginning to have an affect.

Performance against airborne viruses in one minute:

  • PathogenFocus MDBD achieved a 7.74-log reduction (99.99998%)
  • Bipolar Ionization (BPI) Brand A - 4.90909%
  • Bipolar Ionization (BPI) Brand B - 23.94000%
  • Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) - 11.54555%
  • UVC - 6.96909%

ADB saw similar success against the other methods when tested against surface bacteria. PathogenFocus' MDBD units achieved a 7.89-log reduction (99.99998%) in 30 minutes. Other methods tested in that time - BPI Brand A: 71.15385%; BPI Brand B: 60.25641%; PCO: 23.07692%; and UVC: 8.333339%.

Where can ADB technology be used?

Air Disinfection Biosecurity technology provides chemical-free, continuous protection. These systems work continuously to neutralize harmful pathogens and prevent potential re-contamination on air and surfaces. ADB has been utilized in the US since 2008. In that time, tens of thousands of ADB units have been utilized in over 1,000 installations.

ADB can be used in a wide variety of applications, including the below:

How does ADB work?

ADB proactively eliminates airborne and surface pathogens by creating cold plasma in the chamber, then emitting an array of highly reactive molecules including hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), into the treatment space. The treatment continuously sanitizes ambient air and indoor surfaces. ADB treatment is not limited to line-of-sight or physical distance but works everywhere air can reach. ADB can be safely delivered in occupied spaces, with no negative impact on customers or workflow. These units work in conjunction with a facility's existing HVAC/air handling system, or as standalone units, and can be scaled to any size treatment space without sacrificing treatment efficacy.

1.

Ambient air is captured and exposed to high frequency controlled electrical pulses within the system’s chamber.

ADBIllustrationMobileImage2

2.

This creates cold plasma in the unit's chamber.

ADBIllustrationMobileImage3-v3

3.

Highly reactive molecules are then dispersed through the air via the existing HVAC system or from the wall-mounted/portable unit.

4.

The particles contact air and surface pathogens, destroying their DNA/RNA rendering them inactive, and reducing the microbial burden.
