Third-Party Testing

In the lab and in the field, GPS® works with third parties to put our NPBI™ technology to the test.

Results-driven technology

An innovative process to help clean the air

The air around us is filled with particles such as dust, dander, smoke, odors and even viruses and bacteria. Our patented NPBI technology helps reduce particles in the air by introducing ions into the space via the airflow in your ventilation system. When these ions disperse throughout a space, they seek out and form bonds with particles in the air through a process called agglomeration. This creates a snowball effect in which particles begin to cluster together. The larger a cluster of particles becomes, the easier it is for your system to filter it out of the air.

Performance Validation

Advancing the science of ionization

GPS works with third-party laboratories to continually strive for best-in-class indoor air testing. Testing is conducted in large chambers that are designed to emulate realistic applications. To learn more about testing and experiment design, please request test reports.

In-Air Testing

GPS products are designed to work with air handling systems to deliver the benefits of ionization. These tests measure the reduction of certain airborne viruses and bacteria by aerosolizing a test specimen into a large biosafety test chamber (BSL2 or BSL3) and suspending it in the air using mixing fans. Measurements of the specimen are taken at regular intervals and compared to a control without the introduction of ionization.

The GPS NPBI technology was tested by Innovative BioAnalysis in a 20 foot wide by 8 foot high by 8 foot deep chamber with a temperature range between 69 degrees and 75 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity range between 42% and 52%. The technology was used in conjunction with an air handling unit designed to create and sustain achievable ion density levels that have been observed in real-world applications. Mixing fans were used to disperse the ions and suspend the test specimen within the chamber. Significant variations in temperature, humidity or other environmental factors may impact performance. Testing the reduction rate of any virus or bacteria with GPS NPBI technology is an ongoing process, and additional testing will continue in the future. Tests conducted in the same manner with attention to all experimental variables should come within a margin of error of the results stated above.

Surface Testing

GPS products are designed to work with air handling systems to deliver the benefits of ionization. These tests measure the reduction of certain viruses and bacteria on surfaces by applying a specimen to glass slides, petri dishes or coupons and placing them on a table within a large biosafety test chamber (BSL2 or BSL3). Measurements of the specimen are taken at regular intervals and compared to a control without the introduction of ionization.

Zero Ozone Emissions

GPS has earned UL’s stringent Zero Ozone Emissions Certification across its entire product line.

UL is the global safety science leader that provides testing, inspection and certification, including ozone safety standards that help people make informed choices when selecting systems.

All current GPS products* are certified to UL 2998 not to introduce more than five parts per billion of ozone - which is considered the threshold for zero ozone emissions.

For more information and to view our certified products, visit the UL SPOT website.

*Prior models may be either UL2998 certified or UL867 compliant.
