The Best Air Purifier For Proven Protection Against SARS-CoV-2? The Defender
COVID has dramatically impacted our world and continues to cause shifts in everyday life. New variants, outbreaks, and rising numbers have us all concerned…still. After 2 years, it’s still hard to safely get together with those we love — and most of us are looking for other solutions.
At FilterQueen, we’ve cared about improving the quality of air since 1928. We aren’t some new company that saw an opportunity to make money off the virus. We truly care about improving the health of others with our Defender air purifier.
When COVID hit — we knew we wanted to do our part to help. Protecting your indoor air quality is what we do and who we are. So what else could we do? Put the Defender air purifier through rigorous independent testing.
It takes awhile to set up advanced testing of this magnitude. We’re talking about virus particles here! Virus particles that have killed far, far too many. But we needed (and you deserve) to know how far our Defender air purifier goes to protect you and those you love.
We couldn’t be more excited to share the news!
Our Defender air purifier removes SARS-CoV-2 particles…99.9% from our independent testing results.
You won’t believe how fast either; keep reading to find out.
Learn more about how we tested, and how you can get the best air purifier on the market — to protect yourself and your loved ones from SARS-CoV-2 and other airborne illnesses.
What Does Independent Testing Mean for an Air Purifier?
Since we’re dealing with a deadly virus, it’s important to understand what independent testing means. First things first, it’s real research. There can be some confusion surrounding “independent” if that means we tested it ourselves. Seems sneaky, right?
Not the case here. It’s “independent” because we hired an official company to test it for us. Intertek, a complete quality assurance provider that’s been around for more than 130 years, tested our air purifier against SARS-CoV-2. They use state-of-the-art equipment and technical expertise to assure the quality and safety of millions of products worldwide. We went to the best because you deserve the best.
The next big thing to talk about — what did the testing look like? Don’t worry, we won’t get too sciency on you! You can read the full report here.
Structure of Intertek’s Testing Protocol:
- Our Defender air purifier was put in a 1,000 cubic foot chamber with the CDC SARS-CoV-2 surrogate virus.
- Researchers took air samples every 15 minutes for 2 hours.
- Lab technicians plated and incubated samples overnight (to check viral growth).
- After incubation, researchers compared the samples to those of an infected chamber with the same conditions — WITHOUT the Defender.
Independent testing showed removal of 99.9% of the virus particles from the air in 90 minutes!
We’re so proud of our product. (But also had no doubt, since high-quality air protection is our passion and purpose!) After decades in this business, we’re thrilled to now have verified results to share with you. We truly want to enhance people’s lives by bringing clean air inside.
Let’s dive into how our Defender is the best air purifier on the market for SARS-CoV-2, and what that means for you.
How Does the Defender Air Purifier Remove 99.9% Of SARS-CoV-2 Particles?
Our filter is 3 times better than the standard HEPA filter. Our proprietary Medi-Filter Cartridge has proven “COVID Capture Technology!” When SARS-CoV-2 particles get sucked into the Defender, they are trapped by this cartridge instead of returning to the air — hence “capturing COVID".
You only need to change this Medi-Filter cartridge once each year, making it user-friendly with little maintenance. Experience incredible reassurance that, while breathing in your home or office, you’ll have added protection from SARS-CoV-2 when using our air purifier.
We’re going to point out one more time that it captured 99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 particles from the air — within 90 minutes! This shows the amazing strength of our air purifier, even though it runs quietly.
The Defender works so softly and efficiently because of the 360° air intake. The lower portion of the device pulls in air from every angle. Once the air is clean, it’s put back into your room from the top half of the machine. It never needs to be placed a certain way or on a specific setting. (Unless you want it to! Ease of use plays a huge role in our purifiers.) Sleek, simple, and effective design that does the job.
While SARS-CoV-2 is the main focus here, keep in mind that our air purifier removes other harmful toxins and allergens like:
- Other Viruses and Bacteria
- Volatile Organic Compounds
- Pet Dander
- Mold Spores
You’ll notice how different and fresh the air is when using our air purifier. We think you’ll just feel a little better, and we all could use more of that right now.
Choose the Best Air Purifier to Protect Yourself & Loved Ones From SARS-CoV-2
We’re all exhausted as the COVID situation continues to swirl around in our world. It takes loved ones, steals time, and continues to ruin special occasions like baby or bridal showers. (And makes it scary to get together with anyone who isn’t in “your bubble.”)
We understand. You’re afraid because you can’t see this virus, and the many unknowns surrounding this devastating pandemic keep rising. You’re tired of worrying about getting together for a play date, wondering about the holidays, or stressing when your healthcare loved one comes home from a long shift at the hospital.
When you invest in the Defender air purifier, you're deciding to support your health — and that includes your peace of mind (hello mental health break!). Knowing you’ll have added protection in your own home is something we can all be excited about.
