Pune, March 25, 2020: Rajendra Jagdale, Director General of Pune Science and Technology (Scitech) Park, Pune, said that one hour of operation of Ion generator machine reduces viral load within a room by 99.7% depending on room size.

The technology for ‘SCITECH AIRON developed under the NIDHI PRAYAS program initiated by Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India by one of the incubatee companies of Scitech Park, Pune is one of the effective solutions for controlling air pollution and killing disease causing viruses and bacteria.

 He further added that its usefulness has been scientifically tested by various globally renowned labs in various closed environments like houses, hospitals, schools, farms, all types of industries, etc. Scitech Airon Indoor Ion Generator would really help in tackling the coronavirus positive cases, suspects and would also ensure the well being of the staff, doctors and nurses who are working round the clock in the quarantine facilities by enhancing their disease resistance power and ability to fight the virus.


Effective efficacy of Ion generator has been also observed on different types of pathogens

Virus : Influenza virus, Coxsackie virus, Polio virus, Human Corona

Allergens : Mite allergen (dust from dead mite bodies and feces), Pollen allergen (cedar pollen)

Bacteria : MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Coliform bacteria (E. coli), Bacilli, Bacteria (Coliform bacteria, Staphylococcus)

Fungi : Cladosporium (black mold)). It could be useful against floating viruses in the air on public transport, train stations or airports, or especially within a confined space like a plane cabin, house, hospital ward etc.

How does it work? 

1 – Scitech Airon ionizer machine generates negatively charged ions at approx. hundred millions per 8 second of emission rate that are electrostatically attracted to positively charged airborne particles and aerosol droplets and attaches to them in large numbers.

 2 – The negative ions generated by the ionizer form clusters around microparticles such as airborne mold, corona or influenza viruses, mite allergens, bacteria, pollens, dust etc. and render them inactive through a chemical reaction by creating highly reactive OH groups called hydroxyl-radicals and H2O2 which are highly reactive and known as atmospheric detergents.

 3 – The negative ions surround the hemagglutinin (surface proteins that form on organisms and trigger infections) and change into highly reactive OH groups which takes a hydrogen molecule from the hemagglutinin and change into water (H2O). The hemagglutinin molecules are destroyed so the virus become deactivated.

 Health Benefits


         – Detergent property generated by ion generator helps in breakdown of the outer protein of the allergens, virus and bacteria which helps in controlling air borne diseases.

         – Increases the body’s resistance to infections and harmful environmental factors. This resistance would be really helpful for the next 20-30 days outside the ion atmosphere.

         – Decomposes gaseous pollutants like Carbon Monoxide (1000 times more harmful than Carbon dioxide), Nitrogen dioxide and Volatile Organic Compounds.

         – Scitech Airon Indoor Ion Generator does not emit any harmful ozone.

 Other Benefits

     Activates and enhances the protective functions of the body.

     Increases OH and H2O2 in the air which acts as detergent molecules in the air for reducing pollutants to their non active components.

      Fast improvement in patient’s health.

     – Normalizes the work of the cardiovascular system.

     Eliminates insomnia, improves sleep quality.

    – Reduces fatigue.

    – Prevention of respiratory diseases.

   – Decreases suspended particles in the air by settling down.
