Pathogens

The following is a partial list of airborne pathogens. To help put all this in perspective - look at the Disease column and the DIA Microns column. IQAir® will guarantee that they will filter out at least 99% of everything on this list (everything larger than .3 microns will be filtered at 99.97%). As for other air filtration systems - well, we've been proven to be 100 times more efficient. The product of choice to remove these particles from homes is the HealthPro Plus - for more serious control of microorganisms see our Cleanroom Series.
