Scientific Proof

Real world laboratory tests repeatedly show that ActivePure® is a powerful virus air cleaning and surface technology

In independent third-party laboratory tests, ActivePure has been proven to reduce up to 99.99% of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), Avian influenza, E.Coli, MRSA, Norovirus, Staph bacteria, Candida, Swine Flu, Hepatitis, Legionella, and more. Shown on this page are some of the results.

ActivePure® Vs SARS-CoV-2 testing
(SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19)

These laboratory tests on SARS-CoV-2 virus were conducted in August 2020 measuring surface reduction and in December 2020 measuring airborne reduction. The results of the laboratory tests showed a dramatic reduction in the levels of the virus on both surfaces and in the air.
