Studies & Results

Effects of ActivePure (RCI) Technology

on Reducing Common Bacteria and Fungi on Surfaces in 24-hour Testing

Testing by Kansas State University. Field results may vary based on environmental conditions.


Scientific tests have demonstrated that the technology in activTek air purifiers can substantially reduce microbial populations on surfaces-including but not limited to Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Streptococcus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, and S. chartarum. Presently activTek does not make a similar claim with respect to airborne microbials. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
