AirSupply® Unipolar Ion Emitters are NOT ozone generators. Ozone levels have been tested and determined safe by Underwriters Laboratories (USA), Fuji Testing Laboratories (Japan), University of Southern California: Advanced Pollution Instruments (USA), and Intertek Testing Services NA, Inc. (USA) and are in compliance with the requirements of Section 32.1 of the standard for Safety of Household and Similar Electrical Appliances Part 2-65; Particular Requirements for Air Cleaning Appliances, which requires that it shall not exceed the limit of 0.05 ppm.

A year long study by eminent researchers in air pollution science has concluded that the Mini-Mate, can substantially reduce the inhalation of toxic particles such as smoke, dust, pollens, moulds, many allergens, fungi, germs and the most dangerous particles that would otherwise remain trapped in the lungs. This study was performed by leading authorities in air pollution research in laboratories that have no equal in this country (USA) that are used by EPA, NIH, OSHA, CDC, NIOSH, HUD, NIST and NATO. Personal, wearable and stationary ionic air cleaners from three different manufactures were evaluated and experts reviewed the results and conclusions.
The authors of this report concluded, “The research teams at the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center are very excited about these studies and have recently written thirteen papers which have been published in major peer-reviewed journals with international circulation.
