The Air Genie™ Air Sanitizer is a portable, compact disinfection device designed to eliminate harmful airborne viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) from the air. The AirGenie™ is equipped with Ultra-Violet (UV-C) lights that sanitize 100% of the air in a room every 10-minutes and eliminate 99.9% of viruses.

How the Air Genie™ Sanitizer / Air Purifier Works
When microorganisms that carry bacteria are exposed to the UV-C lights in the AirGenie™ Sanitizer, the light penetrates through their cell wall and disrupts the structure of their DNA molecules, prohibiting reproduction. This makes it nearly impossible for airborne viruses to be transmitted from person to person.
Why the AirGenie™ Sanitizer does its Best Work in Classroom and Office Settings
The Air Genie™ is specifically designed for use where the virus is released to prevent cross-contamination and spreading thru an entire building. The Air Genie™ creates a downward flow of aerosolized particles away from occupants. Sanitized air is circulated from overhead all within the same room.
The AirGenie™ Air Sanitizer is equipped with UV-C lights that are lethal to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
“The COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 has invoked widespread interest in effective and reliable disinfection methods to help combat the virus, including ultraviolet germicidal inactivation (UVGI). Due to the novelty of this coronavirus strain at the time of writing, there are significant gaps in literature on the UV susceptibility of the pathogen. In this paper, estimates of the SARS-CoV-2 UVGI response are derived from studies reporting UV susceptibility of SARS-CoV-1, a close genomic relative. To motivate this comparison, the genome sequences of both coronavirus strains were analyzed and found to have effectively identical theoretical UV-C susceptibility, differing by only 1.48%. Conducting a curve fitting analysis on SARS-CoV-1 survivorship data obtained from existing literature, the approximate UV-C dosage required to inactivate the virus below assay limit of detection was found to be 36144 J/m 2 (≥5-log). Using this dosage as a benchmark for UVGI applications against SARS-CoV-2, a benchmark minimum exposure time can be determined by t ≈ (1.5 × 10 6)π · (r 2 /P), where r is the distance from the UV-C source to the sample surface, P is the wattage of the germicidal bulb, and t is expressed in seconds. This amounts to at least 2 hours for a 15 W UV-C bulb placed 6 inches from a disinfecting surface.”

The Importance of having an AirGenie™ Air Sanitizer
239 Experts With One Big Claim: The Coronavirus Is Airborne
Ventilation systems in schools, nursing homes, residences and businesses may need to minimize recirculating air and add powerful new filters. Ultraviolet lights may be needed to kill viral particles floating in tiny droplets indoors.
World Heath Organization
An aerosol is a respiratory droplet so small it may linger in the air. In its latest description of how the virus is spread, the agency said transmission of the virus by aerosols may have been responsible for “outbreaks of Covid-19 reported in some closed settings, such as restaurants, nightclubs, places of worship or places of work where people may be shouting, talking or singing.”
Dr. Fauci, M.D.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director
Dr. Fauci indicated it has become much clearer that someone is likely at greater risk if they’re in an indoor space where there’s less air circulation and any degree of aerosolization.
“I’ve spoken to superintendents and principals, and recommend if possible, outdoors, better than indoors. If possible, keep the classrooms well ventilated with the windows open if possible, wearing a mask, physical separation, desks that are put further apart, if you could possibly, physically do that,” Dr. Fauci said.
COVID-19 Is Transmitted Through Aerosols. We Have Enough Evidence, Now Is Time To Act
People wear protective face masks while shopping at the Union Square Greenmarket during Phase 4 of re-opening following restrictions imposed to slow the spread of coronavirus on Aug. 22, 2020 in New York City. Many months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the coronavirus is still spreading uncontrolled through the U.S. Public health authorities including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) tell us to remain six feet apart, wash our hands. – TIME
