Why Indoor Air Matters
Humans spend between 80–95% of their lives inside inhaling more than 10 m3 of indoor air every day.
Pollutants and pathogens suspended in that air can be absorbed into our throats, eyes, lungs and bloodstream, negatively impacting our health, wellbeing, cognition, and performance.
Disinfecting Hands & Surfaces Isn't Enough
Healthcare-acquired infection is a serious and widespread problem with an estimated 1 in 10 patients acquiring an infection during a hospital stay. In Europe alone, healthcare-acquired infections lead to 16 million additional days of hospital stay and €7 billion in direct costs.
Over 30% of healthcare-acquired infections possibly involve airborne transmission at some point.

What's in the air?
Humans spend between 80–95% of their lives inside inhaling more than 10 m3 of indoor air every day. Indoor air can be up to 10 times more polluted than outside air – teeming with volatile organic compounds and microorganisms that contain or attach to viruses, bacteria, fungal spores, and pollen. Exposure to these pollutants can lead to infectious disease, asthma, allergies, headaches and irritation.
The Research Behind Novaerus
Utilizing NanoStrike Technology, Novaerus devices have been shown to safely and effectively reduce viruses, bacteria, mould spores, VOCs, and particulate matter in dozens of independent laboratory tests.
In case studies and clinical trials, our products have been demonstrated to reduce infections and improve wellbeing in real-world settings.
CLOSE THE LOOP IN INFECTION CONTROL
Cleaner Air = Cleaner Hands & Surfaces
Infectious aerosols can be extremely small (<5 μm) and remain suspended and viable in the air stream over long periods of time, resulting in a high risk of airborne infection. Larger infectious particles drop from the air to contaminate surfaces and hands.
Infectious pathogens like SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, TB, and MRSA are scientifically proven to be transmitted via indoor air currents.
