In independent lab testing, at LMS Technologies in Minnesota, Brio removed 100% of live MS2 virus (Covid-19 surrogate) in just 15 minutes. The test, conducted in a 1000-square-foot, sealed stainless steel chamber, released aerosolized MS-2 bacteriophage, a live FDA-approved COVID-19 surrogate virus, into the chamber. MS-2 is similar to coronavirus in size.
The great news is that Brio removes the virus. But, it is also important to know that properly using a Brio Air Purifier is only one part of your COVID-19 protection plan.
According to the EPA, "When used properly, air purifiers can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a home or confined space. However, by itself, a portable air cleaner is not enough to protect people from COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, operating an air cleaner can be part of a plan to protect yourself and your family."
