Award Winning Biodefense Air Filter Catches and Kills COVID-19 Virus Variants with its Breakthrough Science-Based Technology
Hospitals, schools, businesses, governments choose IVP as a long-term investment to protect indoor spaces and improve HVAC infrastructure against COVID-19 variants, future viruses and air pollutants
HOUSTON, Aug 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Houston-based Integrated Viral Protection (IVP) has announced examples of US installations on COVID-19 hotspots. Installations in Texas, Nevada, Michigan, Florida, California, New York, Alabama and Maryland, just to name a few, indoor spaces will best protect against current Delta and Lambda COVID-19 variants and other future submicron airborne threats.
“IVP’s proprietary technology is the only proven airborne solution shown in multiple research studies to actually capture and kill SARS-CoV-2 and other submicron spores instantly in one pass, without significantly impacting ambient air temperature,” said Dr. . Garrett Peel, IVP’s Executive Director.
“This breakthrough biotech provides additional security for the vaccine as an improvement in indoor safety and well-being, with an upgrade to current HVAC filters that lack the science to kill airborne viruses,” said Dr. Kenneth Thorpea, Robert W. Woodruff Professor and Chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management, at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
“The time is now,” said Monzer Houranic, chairman and founder of IVP. “We need to go on the attack, not the defense, when it comes to COVID-19. We need to look at proven solutions other than the vaccine, which are based on science to help protect us.”
“I applaud the current use of IVP and those governments, schools and businesses that were progressive enough to embrace the new groundbreaking science of IVP early. University of Houston, Texas Centre for Superconductivity, the national infectious disease lab on Galveston’s University of Texas Medical Department, the Texas A&M University Engineering Experiment Station, Argonne National Lab and OF saying that IVP works, it gives me great comfort in science. IVP’s filter protects us from current and future variants of COVID-19, and in the long run it will be an investment in the public health infrastructure that our buildings, healthcare and schools desperately need,” the governor said. Rick Perry, earlier Texas Governor and United States Secretary of Energy.
IVP’s world-leading Biodefense Indoor Air Protection System™ is in more than 150 K-12 Texas school campuses, including Episcopal High School (Houston), Galveston ISD, Slidell ISD, Comal ISD, Banquette ISD, Fort Worth ISD and Hogg ISD, at True North Charter Schools in Miami, Florida and in child development centers including St. Paul CDC in San Antonio, Texas. West Point Military Academy, Texas State University and University Texas Medical Branch are among the public universities that have also purchased the IVP technology.
More than 100 healthcare facilities in the US have IVP technology on their campuses, including: University Hospital System (Bexar County, Texas), Methodist Hospital (Texas Medical Center), Steward Healthcare, St Joseph’s Medical Center, Medical Properties Trust, Omega (nursing homes), MD Anderson Cancer Center, Graystone Communities (the largest operator of senior living communities in the US), Post Acute Medical campuses in the US, including their COVID-19 areas, and neuropsychiatric hospitals nationwide. IVP partnered with the Texas Hospital Association to help deliver scientifically proven technologies to improve indoor air quality safety for patients, families and healthcare team members.
IVP is installed at the George R. Brown Convention Center (Houston, Texas), University of Houston Moores School of Music and Opera House and to the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts (Houston, Texas). The hospitality industry has embraced the technology with implementations at Canyon Ranch Spa (the world’s largest) at the Palazzo and Venetian Casino Resorts in Las Vegas, Nevada, the InterContinental Houston Hotel Medical Center and the Hilton Hotel headquarters in McLean, Virginia, and other Hilton Hotel flagships, including the Hilton Tysons Corner Hotel and select Rosewood Hotels, to name a few.
IVP has helped reopen entertainment venues, businesses and restaurants in the US, including the Hunton Group headquarters, the American Airlines Integrated Operations Center and municipal offices. Baytown, Texas and its courthouse and city offices, and on the Wayne County prison system, serving the most populous county in the state of Michigan. The Texas State Department of Public Safety and Texas Department of Emergency Management have also purchased the IVP biotechnology for high-risk service and healthcare areas across the state.
IVP mobile units and HVAC filters have been recognized by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as top technology in the fight against COVID-19. Engineering News Record named IVP’s Technology Newsmaker of the Year for 2020, and its inventor, Monzer Houranic, as the winner of the Award of Excellence for 2021 (Engineer of the Year). The technology has also been approved for emergency use by the US Federal Drug Administration during COVID-19 and meets ASHRAE and ISO standards for air quality and filtration. IVP’s Biodefense Indoor Air Protection System™ is the only proven technology that can actually capture and kill SARS-CoV-2 (99.999%) and anthrax spores (99.98%), instantaneously, with a single pass.
