A New Development In The Air-Purifier Industry Involving Bi-Polar Nanotechnology
Aerosols, including Particulate Matter 2.5, are the culprits of many allergic reactions and respiratory syndromes. Particulate Matter 2.5 is present in heavily polluted areas such as southern Californian cities, New Delhi, China and New York. Based on studies from clinics and hospital admissions, PM2.5 has been positively correlated with increased cases of allergic rhinitis, asthma, bronchitis, allergic pharyngitis and many others. Due to having a diameter of only 2.5 micrometers, the particulate matter often is not visible to the human eye, will be inhaled and cause irritation to the lungs. Many big cities in the world contain PM2.5concentrations much higher than the permissible limit described by the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Particulate Matter 2.5 is composed of metals and products from fuel combustion. The new world trade and economy are driven by new technologies that are based on the application of innovationof novel products that are in great demands. Global economies are so tightly interconnected that companies, governments and industries will soon be forced to cooperate in ways we could not have imagined just a few years ago. Innovations in technology continue to have massive effects on business and society. We're now seeing emerging markets become hotbeds of innovation, especially in efforts to reach the growing middle class and low-income consumers around the globe1. This report covers the information on how a Nanotechnology research product was developed and marketed in many countries. Collaboration between the corporate worlds with academia has been proved to be beneficial in scientific inventions. With the increased population growth and industrial expansions, most cities are experiencing poor air quality. Global warming exerts substantial effects on flora and fauna all over the world. Increasing greenhouse gasses causes accelerated pollinosis and fungal spore production, two major aeroallergens that trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. We are in need of a much advanced air purifier that works more efficientlyimproving the air quality to a greater extent than existing air purifiers in the market. We have been analyzing the daily aeroallergen index by using the coated Melinex tape from the Burkard Volumetric Spore Trap. Exposed, stained Melinex tape was observed under a BX-40 Olympus microscope. Nineteen years of aeroallergen data of the Texas Panhandle revealed a gradual shift in the aeroallergen index with the warmer climate and a shift in flowering seasons. A decade research in aerobiology and nanotechnologyhelped us develop an air purification system that uses Bi-Polar ionization to reduce indoor aeroallergen to improve air quality and better food preservation. Air Oasis air purifiers utilize a new generation ofionization technology that is more efficient than the conventional air purifiers. This new technology simply produces a blanket of redundant oxidizers that not only clean the surrounding air, but also sanitizes surfaces. We have assessed the new unique air purifier called the Mold Guard that targets the particulate matters in the air as well as on the surface and sanitizes the mold and germs present in the air eventually. There is ongoing research at the Research and Development Unit of Air Oasis in collaboration with the West Texas A&M University to apply the Bi-Polar ionization technology to develop commodities like air purification systems, food preservation systems and cell phone sterilizers. We assessed and evaluated the capacity and safety measures of the Mold Guardunit in terms of reducing the air borne particulate matters present in the room air. The fungal and bacterial colonies were analyzed from the tissues in room air after 24, 48, 72 and 120 hours. We also tested the efficiency of the Mold Guard in reducing the mold concentration in the room air and capacity of the two different filters in cleaning the air.
