Research: Capture and Inactivation of Airborne Viral Particles Using an X-Ray Enhanced ElectroStatic Precipitator (ESP).
Aerosols comprised of particles of biological origin, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and spores, are capable of being allergenic, infectious, and/or toxic when inhaled. Inactivation of bioaerosols with ESPs is applicable for indoor air quality improvements related to anti-bioterrorism and overall public health.
