Introducing a new cutting-edge solution for germicidal air filtration. The Omni 4-in-1 Air Filtration Mobile System by Cello Lighting uses state-of-the-art UVC lighting and air purification technology to quickly and effectively deactivate microorganisms and sanitize desired areas. This system provides a highly effective method of providing safe and sanitary environments throughout schools, hospitals, workplaces, and other indoor environments where the spread of viruses or germs is a concern.
What distinguishes the Omni Air Filtration System from other air purification products is the ability for users to select specific modes on the device. For instance, the device can be used as a typical HEPA air filtration system which purifies the air around it, or you can select an additional mode of filtration such as UVC which sterilizes the air and surfaces with disinfecting ultraviolet light. This device can also be used for NPBI ionization to purify air while reducing odor. Additionally, this filtration system features a remote control for safe operation from distance.
Many facilities rely on standard air filtration units to cleanse their indoor air. While this is better than not having any air filtration at all, it can only slow down the build-up of viral concentration in an enclosed space. Eventually, the virus concentration will exceed the infection threshold over a period of time, placing all the occupants of the building at risk.
Our OMNI 4-in-1 UVC air filtration system was designed specifically to address this concern, with the capability of zeroing out the virus concentration in a particular room during periodic break times - such as meetings, classes, restroom breaks, etc. This allows the virus concentration to be kept below the threshold of infection, keeping all occupants safe.
This UVC filtration feature is unique in that it allows for complete and total sterilization of air passing through the filter, as well as surface sterilization. Using a high powered ultraviolet light contained within the filter itself, this technology is typically only seen in biomedical facilities that demand the absolute maximum in cleanliness. It instantly kills pathogens, viruses, bacteria and any other microorganism it is exposed to.
In addition to ultraviolet filtration, these filtration units feature HEPA filtration for ultra fine mechanical scrubbing of the air. This ensures particles such as pollen, and even certain pathogens, are trapped and prevented from being recirculated into the air. While these days HEPA filtration is relatively common on its own, it is not usually seen in use simultaneously with other filtration methods.
As a complement to the UVC and HEPA, these filters use a third method of filtration known as Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization, or NPBI. Simply put, this filtration uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and - ions that kill pathogens by robbing of the hydrogen particles required for sustaining life. This also helps to clump particles together which aids in mechanical filtration efficiency by making them larger and thus easier to be trapped in the HEPA filter media.
UVC Lighting for COVID-19 Protocols
Air purification technology such as UVC lighting has increased in demand after the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This increase is due to individuals and businesses wanting to prevent the spread of the virus and promote a sanitary environment. In fact, many public facilities and work environments have specific protocols they must follow in order to continue operating. This is particularly true for areas such as schools, hospitals, commercial facilities, and other indoor environments.
It is well documented that UVC lighting is an effective method of preventing the spread of viruses such as COVID-19. In fact, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration published a study that recognizes the effectiveness of UVC lighting in preventing the spread of COVID-19. According to the FDA,
“UVC radiation has been shown to destroy the outer protein coating of the SARS-Coronavirus, which is a different virus from the current SARS-CoV-2 virus. The destruction ultimately leads to inactivation of the virus... UVC radiation may also be effective in inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the virus that causes the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)...(U.S. Food & Drug Administration, February 1, 2021, UV Lights and Lamps: Ultraviolet-C Radiation, Disinfection, and Coronavirus).
The Omni 4-in-1 Air Filtration Mobile System is ideally suited for this application, thanks to its powerful UVC filtration in addition to mechanical HEPA filtration, as well as NPBI capabilities. Facility managers will now be able to handle all their filtration needs with one singular filtration system. This streamlining of faculty air filtration not only makes management easier but also increases indoor air quality at the same time.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is UVC lighting?
Short for Ultraviolet-C lighting, these lights are ideal for disinfection of surfaces or air being filtered. Typically contained within a filter unit for filtering air, they also can be used to shine directly on an object to disinfect it. UVC lighting can kill pathogens, viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms. It is ideal for hospitals and environments where air and surface cleanliness is a top priority.
Q. What is NPBI?
This is a type of filtration that uses positive and negative ions to clean air. Short for needlepoint bipolar ionization, NPBI is effective in mechanical filtration by helping to clump particles together, as well as in disinfection through removing the hydrogen necessary for pathogens to survive in an environment.
Q. What is a HEPA filter?
A High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter (HEPA) is a high performance air filter that is certified to remove at least 99.95% of particles down to 0.3 microns. Originally designed during the Second World War for filtering out radioactive aerosols produced during atomic research, these filters are extremely effective at filtering out particulate matter. When used in conjunction with other filtration methods such as UVC and NPBI, there is practically no more effective filtration method available in the marketplace.
