Typical HEPA air purifiers trap allergens and contaminants, which accumulate on the filter and interfere with efficiency. The BioGS HEPA filter traps and reduces common allergens* to support optimum filter efficiency and prolong filter life.

Key Features:
  • The BioGS HEPA filter made of the most advanced fiber material which traps and reduces common allergens* and contaminants on the filter. (Greatly reduced Secondary Pollution through the HEPA filter which may be found in the conventional HEPA Air Cleaner.)
  • Traps airborne allergens and contaminants down to 0.3 microns in size, 99.97% of the time.
  • BioGS HEPA filter also alleviates many common household odors, Volatile Organic Compounds and household chemical smells.
