Objective

To evaluate the efficacy of the NV1050 on reducing airborne Staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria.

Methodology

The test environment was a 30 m3 test chamber, located in the Novaerus microbiology laboratory. During the testing, the NV1050 device was placed inside the chamber at the centre, with the air inlet facing towards the door of the chamber. The NV1050 device was tested at maximum airflow, speed setting 5. The test chamber was controlled for temperature and humidity at 25ºC and 50% relative humidity.

Results

The NV1050 achieved a microbial cell reduction of 99.9% of Staphylococcus epidermidis within 15 minutes of operation.
