The only air filter in the world proven to "catch and kill" airborne COVID-19, Anthrax spores, bacteria, allergens, and other asthma triggers was launched at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Integrated Viral Protection, LLC (Houston, TX, USA) demonstrated its scientifically proven technology with the release of its new Personal Air Filtration Unit to provide additional protection with the vaccine.

IVP allows breathing with confidence by changing the way air is cleaned. This patented technology, based on science, kills airborne viruses in a single pass, including sub-micron variants causing COVID-19, anthrax spores, allergens, and other harmful respiratory triggers. IVP units use a heated foam stainless steel mesh embedded inside a HEPA filter to kill airborne pathogens instantly and removing these pathogens from the air.

The FDA EUA approved Personal Air Filtration Unit was designed to reduce person-to-person virus transmission and is ideal for schools, office spaces, mass transit, and other small indoor spaces IVP's products have been deployed in businesses, health care facilities, schools, and homes around the globe, providing an extra layer of protection to keep indoor spaces safer.

"The time for action is now to combat this virus and its many mutations," said Monzer Hourani, inventor of IVP's indoor air protection system.
