Puraclenz uses an evolved form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) used by NASA to provide clean air for astronauts. PCO has been safely used to purify air and exposed surfaces for more than 40 years in many commercial applications. Our patented cell design generates an exceptionally high density of ozone free ions to proactively deactivate indoor pollutants.
Next-Gen PCO Air Purification•
Puraclenz evolved from technology to chemically-create clusters of neutral gas molecules in the air we breathe. The PCO process uses an internal UV light that reacts with a titanium dioxide coated catalyst to produce positive and negatively charged ions that deactivate pathogens.
What are ions?
An ion is an atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron, giving it a positive or negative electrical charge. When ions disperse throughout a space, they react with single-celled organisms to break down their cellular membranes and destroy the cell. After interaction, the molecules lose their electrical charge and are released back into the air as water vapor.
Puraclenz’s ultra-efficient catalyst design allows our products to use UV lamps that produce no ozone emissions. PCO has over 40 years of peer reviewed and studies performed by third party independent labs and universities to deactivate pathogens.
Actively cleans air and surfaces.
Using air as a medium to deliver ions allows Puraclenz to clean pollutants exposed to the air and hard-to-reach exposed surfaces missed by hand-cleaning or HEPA filters.
When someone coughs or sneezes in a room being treated with conventional air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, microorganisms must move through the space back to the fan unit where it is collected by a filter.
Puraclenz products are designed to deactivate pathogens in the air before reaching other people in the room, without requiring circulation through a filter.
A U.S. patent protecting Puraclenz’s next-gen cell design was granted in 2020. The multi-blade design reflects UV light inside the core with ultra-efficiency. Each blade is shaped to reflect UV light onto the back side of the blade next to it, generating an extraordinary amount of ions for a PCO device.
The unique aerodynamic conical shape further increases ion generation by maximizing contact time with the reactive titanium dioxide surface.
This revolutionary design provides a large area of cleaning coverage with a small footprint and very low energy consumption.
HEPA provides incomplete purification.
- HEPA doesn’t clean surfaces.
- Only collects particles that pass through its filter. Uses air changes to clean pathogens in the room.
- Performs several air changes per hour, so HEPA take 10-60 minutes to clean all air in the room. May not catch pollutants before inhalation.
- HEPA filters 99.97% of 0.3 micron size pollutants. Some viruses and bacteria are 2-10 times smaller.
- Conventional HEPA collects pathogens, but does not destroy them.
- HEPA filters need to be changed every 3-6 months which is expensive and time consuming.
- HEPA consumes a high amount of power to operate.
Proven effective against dangerous bacteria.
Efficacy tests confirm that a Puraclenz P3000 unit is proven to be over 99.7% effective at reducing dangerous bacteria Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus epidermis in the air. MSRE is an FDA recognized surrogate for MRSA, Strep Pnuemoniae and Strep Pyogenes that cause deadly infections.

Does your space have a mold problem?
Puraclenz works differently by dynamically destroying mold mid-air and on exposed surfaces, continuously cleaning throughout an indoor space 24/7. For best results with mold on surfaces in your space, first apply bleach mixed with water to clean these affected areas. Then continuously run your Puraclenz unit for at least 7 days to prevent the return of mold growth.
- Aspergillus brasiliensis
- Toxic Black Mold
- Dark Gray Mold
Is Puraclenz effective against coronavirus?
Independently-conducted efficacy tests confirm, in typical indoor settings, that a Puraclenz P3000 unit is proven to be over 99% effective in reducing MS2 virus in the air. MS2 bacteriophage is a FDA recognized proxy virus of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The efficacy tests were performed by Aerosol Research and Engineering Laboratories in Olathe, Kansas, an FDA compliant laboratory.
