Objective 

To evaluate the efficacy of the PA101C on reducing airborne dust particles and Aspergillus fumigatus mold spores. 

Methodology 

The tests were conducted in a closed room 10.5 x 12 x 8 ft equipped with an exhaust system to clean the room between tests. The room also had a ceiling fan to evenly spread the contaminants injected into the room. The PA101C was installed in a duct system which supplied a measured amount of purified air into the room. 

Summary of Results 

Over the fifteen-minute test period, the dust particles decayed naturally by 12.6%, while the PA101C produced a decay rate of 85.8%. The Aspergillus fumigatus mold spores decayed naturally at a rate of 67.1%, while the PA101C produced a decay rate of 91.1%.
