Additional test results are below. We will be posting more results from West Texas A&M University as testing is completed.
Figure 1 Control (no treatment with air purifier)
|Plate A: Control 1 ft.||Plate A: Control 2 ft.||Plate A: Control 4 ft.|
Figure-1 shows the number of microbial colonies produced in the Control set, before any treatment of indoor air with the air purifier.
Figure 3 (after 24-hour treatment with air purifier)
|Plate A: 24 hr, 1 ft.||Plate A: 24 hr, 2 ft.||Plate A: 24 hr, 4 ft.|
Figure 3 shows the petri-plates after a 24-hour treatment with the air purifier. Note the reduction in number of colonies compared to figure 1 (Control ... No treatment with air purifier).
It was also evidenced that the petri-plates placed closer to the distance to the air purifier (1ft. and 2 ft.) produced the least number of colonies after 24h., 48h. and 72 hours of treatment of the indoor air with the air purifier. Figure-3 shows the level of infection after 24 hours with distances 1 ft, 2ft. and 4 ft. away from the air purifier. There was very minor trace of inoculums from the petri-plates from 1 ft. or 2 ft. and 4 ft. distances after 24 hours of treatment of the room air, thereby indicating definite reduction of the microbial aeroallergen in the room air. After 72 hours of treatment of the indoor air with the air purifier there was almost no microflora or propagules left in the indoor air since there was no microbial colony produced on the petri-plates. All the experiments were carried out with the setting at High in the air purifier. Figure 1 shows the Control plates without any treatment. All the 3 petri-plates from the setup of 1 ft, 2 ft and 4 ft show vigorous growth of the microbial colonies after incubation in an incubator at 37 degrees Celsius. View Microbe Test Report
Figure-2 is a graph showing the distribution of the number of microbial colonies before and after the treatment of indoor air with the air purifier. It is very clear that there was a gradual reduction in the number of microbial (bacterial and fungal) colonies with a greater interval of exposure with the air purifier.
The petri-plates from the setup of 24-hour treatment with air purifier from distances 1ft, 2ft and 4 ft from the air purifier showed no significant microbial growth. At the distance of 1 ft no microbial colony was recorded on the petri-plate while the petri-plates from 2 and 4ft showed very minor trace of inoculums. Figure 4 shows the distribution of the aeroallergen count after the treatment of the room air after 24hour, 48 hour and 72 hours. After 72 hours of treatment there was almost no aeroallergen left close to the air purifier.
The following images show how effective this unit is at reducing the spread of illness causing bacteria and viruses within your home. If a person standing three feet from you, in your home, sneezed would you get sick? Using an Air Oasis 3000 in your home could reduce your chances of getting sick from that sneeze by 78%.

Without Air Oasis 3000 Air Purifier
With Air Oasis 3000 Air Purifier
Test results have shown that Air Oasis units can reduce mold, yeast and bacteria by as much as 98% in the ambient air of your home.
Before Air Treatment
After Air Treatment
Test results have shown that Air Oasis units can reduce VOCs by as much as 98% in short periods of time. For instance, in one test, formaldehyde was reduced by 60% in 4 hours.
Unlike most test results touted by competitors, we show the results in the ambient air and not directly over the air purifier. This provides a truer demonstration of the benefits.
