Somethings in the air

Something`s in the air

I read your article “Biotech companies create biosafety/cleanroom hybrid” (CleanRooms, March 1999, page 20). It was good, but there was no discussion of “what do you do about bacteria in the air.”

It turns out that there is now data from UCLA Medical School that indicates that ion generators are effective at destroying bacteria. The air that is drawn through them not only has negative ions that make people feel better, there is a huge reduction in bacteria.

I would think that people in this area would welcome a way to deal with airborne bacteria.
