  • 1. Until today, You were not Controlling Infection. It was controlling you. That All Changes Now.
  • 2. NOVAERUS is a revolutionary plasma sterilization technology that is uniquely destructive to all airborne microorganisms. The consistent and affordable generation of low power plasma is an incredible breakthrough, and one in which NOVAERUS is proud to be the world leader. The destructive effect within the NOVAERUS FIELD is total and immediate, with viral kill rates near theoretical perfection (99.9999999999%). NOVAERUS improves clinical outcomes and delivers immediate financial benefits for your facility.

The consistent and affordable generation of low power plasma is an incredible breakthrough, and one in which NOVAERUS is proud to be the world leader. The destructive effect within the NOVAERUS FIELD is total and immediate, with viral kill rates near theoretical perfection (99.9999999999%). NOVAERUS improves clinical outcomes and delivers immediate financial Ask about our 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee Immediate Benefits of Installation? CONTROL OUTBREAKS OF AIRBORNE INFECTIONS Containing even one outbreak of Influenza more than covers the cost of NOVAERUS in your facility for an entire year. Outbreaks of airborne viruses, such as Influenza, have a substantial cost for healthcare facilities, with The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases stating that the total cost of an outbreak of Influenza is $34,179: (NFID 2008.) • 23 percent of staff become ill, resulting in 14 person-days of sick leave • Postponement of eight scheduled admissions • Suspension of admissions for 11 days • An average additional cost per patient of $3,798.15 ODOR CONTROL - NOVAERUS neutralizes all biological odors without the need for masking with harsh chemicals or deodorizing sprays. ‘Kill efficiencies in excess of Log 12 were obtained consistently for all classes of viral particle examined. For all other classes of organism, no less than a Log 5 kill rate was obtained on a continuous basis. In summary, the NOVAERUS device is highly effective at killing micro-organisms.’ ~ Microsearch Laboratories, Clinical Trial 2012 “NOVAERUS exceeded all our expectations; improving clinical outcomes for residents and delivering clear financial savings from the very first month”
  • 3. * *Novaerus destroys all biological odors The Technology The NOVAERUS FIELD® generates a low-power electromagnetic plasma field inside our air sterilization devices. Billions of Photons and Electrons are generated inside this field, destroying the DNA strands of microorganisms instantaneously, leaving no genetic material to recombine or mutate. Viruses cannot become immune to the NOVAERUS FIELD®. Upon entering the NOVAERUS FIELD®, microorganisms immediately cease to live, and all organic matter is converted to its original core atomic constituents of Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen etc. These molecules are then expelled as harmless constituents of the overall atmosphere. NOVAERUS delivers a consistent return on your investment from the first month. Our full-service operating lease, with low monthly payments, ensures immediately improved clinical and financial outcomes without any increase in staff costs or capital expenditure. Long Term Benefits of Installation RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS DECLINE up to 50% Respiratory infections immediately decline by up to 50%, leading to a reduction in antibiotic use and healthier patient immune systems. HAIs DECLINE up to 50% As antibiotic stewardship improves, there is a directly associated reduction in Healthcare Acquired Infections, such as MRSA and C-diff. PHARMACY COSTS DECLINE up to 20% Reductions in overall respiratory infections, combined with the savings on expensive specialized HAI antibiotics, lead to a decline in pharmacy costs of up to 20%. HOSPITAL READMISSION RATES DECLINE up to 30% Reduced respiratory infections and HAI’s, lead to meaningful reductions in hospital readmission rates within 3 months of installing NOVAERUS. STAFF SICK TIME DECLINES up to 45% Staff costs are 70% of facility budgets, with excessive staff sick leave costing as much as $100,000 every year. NOVAERUS clients have seen a decline in staff sick leave of up to 45% in the first year
  • 4. Frequently Asked Questions Why do I have an airborne infection problem? Many diseases are indisputably airborne, such as Influenza, Norovirus and TB. With regard to HAI’s (Hospital Associated Infections) such as C-difficile and MRSA, ‘best practice’ cleaning regimes such as daily changing of bed linen, opening of curtains, flushing of toilets, sweeping and vacuuming give rise to many of the spores and bacteria becoming airborne through Aerial Dissemination. NOVAERUS destroys these airborne pathogens, reducing surface counts by up to 68% in clinical trials. How does NOVAERUS destroy odors? Odors in a healthcare facility are primarily biological-based. NOVAERUS kills the underlying biological matter and bacteria that cause these odors, without the use of chemicals or filters. Has NOVAERUS undergone any clinical trials? Dr. Edward James, Consultant Microbiologist for the National Health Service in Great Britain, supervised a 16-week clinical trial in the historic Royal Free Hospital in London (900 bed facility that treats 700,000+ patients per year). 8,500+ samples were collected, both surface and air. The conclusions show that the odd’s of an occurrence of MRSA are reduced by 97% when NOVAERUS Technology is deployed, that malodor is significantly reduced, and that bacterial surface counts are reduced by > 65%. What does NOVAERUS mean? NOVAERUS is a contraction of two latin words, Nova and Aerus; meaning ‘New Atmosphere’. Where is the filter? NOVAERUS is an ACTIVE technology that changes the chemical makeup of the air as it passes through our Patented Plasma Technology; immediately rendering all viruses, bacteria and odors inert. ‘Passive Filtration’ cannot stop a virus or trap an odor. NOVAERUS is an ‘Air Sterilization’ Technology, that produces air that is more sterile than an Operating Room. NOVAERUS is not a passive air filtration product. Where does everything go? Microorganisms that are destroyed by the plasma field are broken down at a molecular level, returning to their original constituent components of Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen etc. Any non-organic matter, such as dust, is expelled by the airflow through the system. Any non-viral microscopic particles (skin cells, dust etc) are rendered completely inert, and ultimately return to being dust that is trapped in your normal HVAC filter. How fast does it work? The plasma field has an immediate effect on pathogens as soon as they are passed through it. Depending on the size of the room, it may take 24- 48 hours for the system to eliminate the initial bio-burden. You will usually notice a discernable reduction in odor within the first day. How can I be sure it works? NOVAERUS is so confident in our technology that we offer a ’30-day Money Back Guarantee’ to our clients, providing a completely Risk-Free method of adopting our revolutionary technology. What Our Customers Say We initially wanted an odor management solution and ended up with clinical and financial benefits beyond our expectations. Respiratory infections declined dramatically within 30 days of installing Novaerus. The clinical benefits are extensive; improved antibiotic stewardship, stronger patient immune systems and not a single outbreak of Influenza in a year. NOVAERUS paid for itself in pharmacy savings alone, and staff sick leave is down by 45% year-on-year. I cannot recommend NOVAERUS highly enough. ~ Director of Nursing, 280 Bed Skilled Nursing Facility We placed one of the Novaerus units with a patient who had a significant history of respiratory infections to evaluate efficacy. Subsequently he has not had further infection which prompted us to install the Novaerus units throughout the facility. I also believe the implementation of the Novaerus units were instrumental in averting an outbreak of flu earlier in the season. - Administrator, 230 Bed Skilled Nursing Facility We tested NOVAERUS in our nursing facility for 30 days and in that time cleared two outbreaks of MRSA. The NOVAERUS technology exceeded all our expectations and we continue to use it in our facility. ~ Administrator, 80 Bed Skilled Nursing Facility NOVAERUS Air Systems have made a huge difference in our air quality. ~ Administrator, 120 Bed Skilled Nursing Facility 1408 N.
