NPBI’s Effectiveness at Building Air Purification to Target COVID’s Vulnerabilities

Study Highlights Benefits of Neutralizing the Positively Charged CoV-2 Virus

A new study, “Enhanced Binding of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein to Receptor by Distal Polybasic Cleavage Sites” by Northwestern University, proves electrostatic forces cause SARS-CoV-2 binding to the human cells, supporting data on the technology and effectiveness of needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI™) air purification for HVAC systems.
“In showing how a negatively charged molecule neutralizes the positively charged coronavirus protein spike, Northwestern University’s recent study shows exciting insight into our tech data on NPBI’s effectiveness in air purification for indoor air, and it provides an interesting illustration of how electrostatic forces work to target SARS-CoV-2’s vulnerability,” said Charlie Waddell, chief technology officer for Global Plasma Solutions (GPS).
Ions are molecules or atoms with either a positive or negative charge. “NPBI leverages an electric field to create a high concentration of positive and negative ions,” said Waddell of the GPS technology, which launched in 2009 as an HVAC solution that purifies the air by reducing airborne particulate, viruses, mold spores and bacteria — a solution that is making offices, schools and transportation hubs safer in a COVID aware world.
NPBI technology is being used in dozens of offices, schools, airports, hospitals and community spaces worldwide, including Google, University of Maryland, Boston Children’s Hospital and Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
