Evolution Air Purifier
WHY THE BRYANT® EVOLUTION AIR PURIFIER MATTERS As part of a strategy for slowing the spread of infectious disease in your home, the Evolution air purifier should be considered essential. Featuring our patented Captures & Kills® technology, the Evolution air purifier offers proven, third-party tested effectiveness with a 99% inactivation of captured viruses and germs when used as instructed,1 including: • Coronavirus • Common cold surrogate • Bacteria that causes strep throat • Human influenza
INDEPENDENT TESTING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO Our confidence with the performance of our Evolution air purifier capturing and killing coronavirus from filtered air1 is based upon third-party testing at a university environmental engineering laboratory that specializes in disinfection science. • Tests were conducted with a murine coronavirus that is closely related to the human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 • The murine pathogen surrogate allowed testing to be completed safely** Controlled environment tests showed that the Evolution air purifier inactivated 99% of coronavirus on its filter.
DEFENDING YOUR HOME TAKES A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH Viruses spread from infected individuals when they breathe, speak, sneeze or cough. The viral particles are contained in aerosols, the largest of which quickly settle on indoor surfaces, while the smaller ones can remain airborne.9 And while the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself is extremely small (about 0.1 microns in diameter),10 the larger respiratory droplets or aerosols that can transmit viruses are large enough to be captured when passing through enhanced air filtration. Filtration technology does not prevent person-to-person or surface transmission; rather, it helps eliminate particles in the air when they flow through your HVAC system and make contact with the filter. That’s why controlling airborne pathogens with Bryant indoor air quality products like the Evolution air purifier makes sense. In addition, following CDC guidelines for personal hygiene and managing surface-based pathogens are important for a comprehensive defense strategy. This includes:
• Physical distancing both at home and when away
• Vigorous hand washing with soap and water for 20 seconds
• Cleaning and disinfecting “high-touch” household and personal items such as counter tops, door handles and cell phones.
