Just as oral hygiene is an important part of our overall health, so too is the quality of the air we breathe. Dental surgeries — particularly those in urban areas — are highly susceptible to poor indoor air quality, while the flow of patients and staff in waiting rooms and surgeries puts practices at high risk for airborne germs and bacteria. Raising the quality of the air in our shared spaces is crucial, especially in sensitive medical environments, and requires more than just a simple air purifier.
With patients unmasked, splash and splatter from aerosol-generating procedures, and traces of anaesthetic gases, the indoor air in dental surgeries needs to be treated with the utmost care.
The concentration of nitrous oxide (N2O) in uncontrolled exposures in dental operators. System maintenance, ventilation, and work practices can effectively reduce concentrations to approximately 25 ppm — the recommended limit3.
The amount of exposure to N2O per week4 that can lead to adverse health effects including liver and kidney disease, as well as decreased immune response and generalized neurological disorders.5
Dental surgeries are high-risk spaces, where potentially ill patients exhale pathogens that can linger in the air for hours6. VIRUSKILLER™ helps prevent the spread of germs between patients and staff.
The VIRUSKILLER™ Reactor Chamber deactivates airborne viruses, bacteria, and pathogens, protecting the air in dental surgeries before, during and after aerosol-generating procedures7.
VIRUSKILLER™ has class-leading performance against gases, VOCs and allergens - providing welcome relief for those staff and patients with respiratory conditions or allergies.
Equipping dental practices with cutting-edge VIRUSKILLER™ clean air technology provides crucial reassurance, winning the trust of patients and ensuring they feel protected within the clinic.
The VK 401 is the unit of choice for dental surgeries and is widely used in dental practices around the world. Its patented Reactor Chamber deactivates airborne pathogens, providing real-time protection for doctors, hygienists, and patients and between aerosol-generating procedures.
VIRUSKILLER™ brings world-class clean air solutions to dental surgeries, providing an additional safety measure where hygiene is of the utmost importance. In the same way that dental practices disinfect surfaces and equipment, VIRUSKILLER™ cleans the air, helping to prevent the spread of germs.
Engineered Infection Prevention
Unrivalled performance against organic pathogens -- viruses, bacteria, mold and fungi -- as well as allergens, irritants, smoke and VOCs.
Simple operation means out of the box indoor air safety, with no complex installation, setup or renovation required.
Ultra-high performance UV-C germicidal decontamination housed within a patented Reactor Chamber for safe, real-time operation.
VIRUSKILLER™ precision airflow control draws contaminated air away from occupants, expelling clean, fresh air into the breathing zone of the room.
Air first passes through a series of filters, including a pre-filter, an activated carbon filter, and a high-end HEPA filter, trapping both large and ultrafine particles for future disposal.
Toxic gases from outdoor air pollutants, as well as indoor odors and fumes from carpets, flooring, and cleaning chemicals are neutralized within minutes.
Our patented Reactor Chamber is the heart of VIRUSKILLER™, ensuring that any remaining microorganisms and gases are deactivated on a single air pass.
