Health Europa writes that Novaerus plays a big role in infection control as the world returns to work in the COVID-19 era. Read the full article here.
As the world exits from the COVID-19 crisis, tens of thousands of white, shoebox-sized metal devices — parked on shelves, mounted on walls — are working 24 hours a day to make indoor air safer to breathe. Whirring quietly, plugged into ordinary outlets, these devices have been installed just about everywhere — above hospital beds and surgical gurneys across Europe, adjacent to dental chairs and IVF incubators in China, on pharmacy walls in Hong Kong and school library shelves in the United States, in Irish pubs and hotel lobbies. They are fastened inside 80% of South Korea’s ambulance fleet. Their unobtrusive design conceals a sophisticated and powerful technology, now deployed in 58 countries to help prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
These pathogen-killing devices represent a decade of innovation at Novaerus, a small Dublin-based company with outsized influence in the COVID era. Designed to control infection in high level medical settings, Novaerus technology is now generating interest well beyond hospitals. “In a world that’s been transformed, we’re helping people get back to work and return to a safe environment,” says Kieran McBrien, Senior Vice President of International Business Development.
