Yes, SOME UV air purifiers really work. Numerous health studies have shown that UV-C light very effectively inactivates viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi by breaking down their DNA or RNA. UV light also is helpful in prevention of secondary allergies related to airborne allergens. However, not all UV air purifiers are the same, nor are all effective. Many make false or exaggerated claims. RXAir® is one of the few that can back its claims with hard data.
RxAir has gone through rigorous testing by EPA- and FDA-certified labs. Our claims that RxAir destroys germs, bacteria, viruses, and reduces VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and odors are backed by independent research and testing facility data and studies. RxAir has been proven to disinfect the air and inactivate a wide range of bacterial and viral pathogens as has been conclusively demonstrated in independent laboratory tests.
