Aura Air is touting its technology as the first air filtration and disinfection system clinically proven to kill SARS CoV-2. The technology also provides a real-time air quality monitoring system.
Aura Air’s patented technology filters, treats, monitors and disinfects indoor air through a unique four-stage purification process. Founded in 2017, Aura Air is now helping to purify the air in hospitals, homes, schools, businesses, hotels, restaurants, buses, nursing homes and other applications in more than 50 countries. Aura Air is headquartered in Israel with partnership offices in Canada, U.S. and India.
A customizable dashboard helps facilities with multiple locations simultaneously monitor their Aura Air units. “We believe parents, schools and school boards will feel safer in school with a system that is accessed in real-time and from anywhere,” said said Yehuda Ordower, managing partner for Aura Canada.
The technology uses a four-stage purification process to filter and treat airborne pathogen droplets. It is already in use in educational settings across many countries, including 70 units at Trent University and five units at the University of the Fraser Valley in Canada; 1,000 units in municipal and school buildings in Massachusetts, in the U.S.; 62 units at the Church of England School in the U.K.; and units in over 700 classrooms in Israel.
In Australia and the United Kingdom, Aura Air devices are used on buses.
Two independent studies from the U.S. and Israel confirmed the Aura Air system kills 99.99% of airborne SARS CoV-2 in the test facility within 60 minutes. The studies were conducted by Innovative Bioanalysis labs in California’s Silicon Valley and Sheba Medical Center. Since the pandemic started, Sheba Medical Centre, one of the top 10 clinical hospitals globally, has also used Aura Air in its COVID-19 wards and staff rooms.
Aura Air is also being used by the Vogue Hotel and RBC Private Wealth Offices in Place Ville Marie in Montreal; the Edmonton Elks’ locker rooms in Alberta; the PGA Golf Club locker rooms in Florida, and several major hotels in the U.S.; Ambulances in Poland; and the Royal Palace in Spain.
