A number of scientific studies were conducted to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the SilentAir air purifier. Taken as a whole, the research paints a compelling picture of SilentAir's ability to remove harmful airborne contaminants. SilentAir captures particles as small as 0.002 microns. In contrast, HEPA air purifiers are only rated to capture contaminants as small as 0.3 microns. These are some of the summaries of independent research that were performed in Japan, Canada and the United States.

Nosocominal Infection

View Study
In a hospital environment, germs do not infect healthy people, however, patients who have less resistance to germs are subject to infections. A study was conducted to determine if the SilentAir air purifier can reduce germs in a hospital environment.

Osaka Medical College – Japan
Pediatric Patients with Allergies

View Study
It is important to create an allergen-free environment in the treatment of pediatric bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis. A study was conducted to determine how the SilentAir air purifier can help reduce the number of attacks suffered by children with bronchial asthma.

MRSA in Hospitals

View Study
Infection by MRSA (Methicillin Resistance Staphylococcus Aureus) in hospitals has now become a great issue to be solved worldwide. A study was conducted to determine how MRSA can be significantly reduced in an individual patient's room with the SilentAir air purifier.

Fukuoka University Hospital - Japan
Asthma and Rhinitis

View Study
The number of people suffering from asthma and rhinitis increases each year. A study was conducted to determine if the SilentAir air purifier can reduce the airborne dust particles in a patient's room, suffering from bronchial asthma.

Summary All of the research cited demonstrates that SilentAir's electrostatic air purification technology is highly capable of removing airborne particles. Most significantly, it removes the tiny particles (less than 0.3 microns) in the air that aggravate allergies and can make people sick.

The difference between filtering air and purifying it.
