Lightair IonFlow® technology prevents airborne spread of influenza and other viral infections


 A study published in Nature Scientific Reports shows that Lightair prevents airborne-transmitted influenza virus infections.


Lightair IonFlow is the only air purification technology proven to effectively not only remove viruses from air but also to eliminate the infectivity of viruses in the air, according to scientific studies at Karolinska Institutet and Linköping University in Sweden published in one of the most cited scientific journals in the world.

Short summary of the Study


  • Lightair’s robust and compact IonFlow technology is highly efficient in capturing small particles and is able to prevent the spread of airborne transmitted viruses.


  • In addition to homes, Lightair’s air purifiers are highly suitable for use in hospitals, offices, day-care centres, school environments and other public places.


  • The infectivity of aerosolized viruses was significantly reduced by >97% due to ionization.


  • Lightair’s technology can prevent the spead of viruses and other pathogens, such as MERS and norovirus which causes “winter vomiting disease”, as well as rotavirus which is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among infants and young children, often known as “stomach flu” in the air.
