Aura’s tests for evaluating the antibacterial efficacy of the different treatment components was done in a chamber located in an office environment. We used TSA (tryptic soy agar) plates for the growth of bacteria, yeast and mold. The control plates were placed in the chamber throughout the whole experiment (4-5 hours each experimental day). The components tested were the HEPA filter alone, the Ray filter™, the Sterionizer, the UVc LEDs and the whole system. Each time the system was operated for 1-5 min and after that, there was a waiting time of 1 h to enable the micro-organisms to settle on the plates. At the end of each working day, the plates were incubated for 3 days in 22 °C in an incubator for the growth of yeast and mold. After 3 days the plates were counted and transferred to a 32 °C incubator for the bacteria growth of another 5 days of incubation. At the end of the period, the plates were counted one more time.
The Aura systems are manufactured in collaboration with the production and assembly lines of Beth-El Industries, which also distributes the product.
To the Aura Air website:
Aura Air is a possible solution for indoor air quality that doesn’t require major building renovations. It is an indoor air purification system, which filters and purifies a space of up to 600 square feet
Aura is both a stand alone platform and an IoT device with an open API, so it can be easily integrated into almost any space. The platform also provides data on air quality, which can be supplied to tenants and their employees who are returning to work post quarantine. Verifiable data on building safety will go a long way in ensuring that employees feel comfortable and safe at the office.
