PCO + HEPA = Clean Air and Surfaces
What is our Next-Generation PCO Technology?
Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) uses a light-powered chemical process to generate ions that break down pollutants mid-air and on exposed surfaces. These PCO ions are safe for people, pets and plants. They are scientifically proven to deactivate mold spores, bacteria, viruses and other fungal allergens.
Our PCO purifier sends out a continuous army of ions that clean air and surface pollutants. It can get to those hard-to-reach places that other purification technologies simply can’t. Instead of relying only on filtering airborne pollutants, Puraclenz sends out ions to actively break down pollutants outside of the purifier. Conventional air purifiers have no impact on surface pollutants because they can’t be moved through the air and removed by filtration.
Our patented Recharge Cell™ inside each purifier is uniquely designed with turbine-like fins that maximize ions released into the air. Puraclenz’s PCO technology enables our purifiers to create a much higher density of ozone-free ions compared to other PCO reactors.
What makes our latest Core™ Technology, which combines PCO + HEPA, so unique?
Puraclenz’s latest purifier Core™ uses a combination of five different technologies to purify the air and exposed surfaces. Each technology targets specific pathogens and pollutants in the environment, while generating zero ozone therefore being safe for people, pets and plants to use.
Puraclenz Continuously Cleans Air and Surfaces 24/7.
PCO technology has been used to purify air and exposed surfaces for more than 40 years in numerous commercial applications. Puraclenz advanced the power of PCO technology with our patented cell design. Puraclenz generates an exceptionally high density of ozone-free ions to deactivate indoor pollutants without producing any harmful byproducts.
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.
For example, when someone coughs or sneezes in a room being treated with conventional air purifiers, such as HEPA filters, micro-organisms must move through the space back to the fan unit, where they are collected by a filter.
Because Puraclenz doesn’t require circulation through a filter, it’s able to deactivate pathogens mid-air next to people in the room.

Puraclenz PCO Technology vs. Other Air Purification Solutions
Most other solutions are passive devices that pull air from an indoor space into their puriﬁer, pass it through a ﬁlter or puriﬁcation technology, and then push the treated air back into the same indoor space. These systems only treat the air they pull into their device. They are usually much less energy efficient, require expensive ﬁlters to be changed regularly, and do not clean surfaces. Some of these systems also create ozone.
In contrast, Puraclenz dynamically deactivates pathogens mid-air and on exposed surfaces. Puraclenz cleans throughout a typical indoor space, reducing the chance that viruses reach other people or settle on surfaces.
Go Beyond Collecting Particles in a Filter.
A conventional HEPA system:
- Cleans air inefficiently by pulling particles through the air into its filter.
- Collects pathogens but does not destroy them.
- Works slowly, taking up to an hour to clean all of the air in a space. As a result, it may not catch pollutants before inhalation or settling on surfaces.
- Cleans only air, instead of both air and surfaces.
- Filters 99.97% of pathogens as small as 0.3 microns but doesn’t filter viruses and bacteria that are two to ten times smaller.
- Uses filters that need to be changed every 3-6 months, which is time consuming and expensive.
- Consumes a high amount of power to operate.
Scientifically Proven Technology.
Puraclenz products use an evolved form of photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) previously used to provide clean air for astronauts in the International Space Station. Our science-backed technology is proven by third party laboratory tests.
Laboratory Tests prove Puraclenz is effective against Coronavirus.
Independently conducted efficacy tests confirm that a Puraclenz P3000 unit is proven to be over 99% effective in reducing MS2 virus in the air in typical indoor settings. MS2 bacteriophage is a FDA recognized proxy virus of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Deactivates Mold Spores Mid-Air.
95.1% effective at inactivating dangerous mold spores of Aspergillus brasiliensis in the air. Aspegillus brasiliensis is a black mold endospore that causes allergic reactions and is a surrogate for Toxic Black Mold, Dark Grey Mold and other species of allergy causing molds.
Deactivates Mold Spores on Surfaces.
99.75% effective at reducing Candida albicans mold spores from surfaces. Plates with live Candida albicans mold spores were placed over 8 feet away from the device during this 8-hour test following EN 17272 standards.
Destroys Bacteria Mid air.
Proven 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.

Deactivates Bacteria on Surfaces.
95.7% destruction of Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538 on surfaces effectiveness after a duration of eight hours.
Destroys Viruses Mid-Air.
99.4% effective at reducing MS2 virus in the air. MS2 bacteriophage is a FDA recognized proxy virus of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Deactivates Viruses on Surfaces.
58% effective at reducing SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Virus was placed on plates 10 feet away from a P3000 unit in a large room that had full outdoor air changes during the one hour length of study.
Destroy Musty Odors Caused by Mold
Independent studies confirm that Puraclenz dynamically destroys mold spores mid-air and on exposed surfaces, continuously cleaning throughout a typical indoor space 24/7. Puraclenz reduces musty odors by stopping mold growth.
Treat Bodily Smells from Bacteria
Laboratory studies show that Puraclenz is over 99% effective at reducing dangerous bacteria in the air including those that cause obnoxious odors like smelly clothes, sweaty workout gear and equipment. Puraclenz also deactivates bacteria from exposed surfaces in tough-to-reach places.
Clears Indoor Air of Dangerous Wildfire Smoke Pollutants.
H13 HEPA is 99.97% effective at removing PM10 and PM2.5 from wildfire smoke. PM2.5 is small enough to enter deep lung tissue. Activated Carbon helps to remove rancid wildfire odors and some VOCs.
Provides Protection from Wildfire Pollutants while Remaining Indoors.
Moderate levels of PM2.5, can cause serious respiratory distress, especially for asthmatics, the very young and very old. At higher levels, even very healthy people will feel symptoms from wildfire smoke inhalation. Puraclenz Core removes the vast majority of these pollutants.
