04/12/2021 Newark Public Schools to Install 4,500+ Odorox Air and Surface Sanitation Systems to Help Students and Faculty Return to the Classroom Safely
Newark Public Schools officially welcomed back students and staff to begin in-person learning for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March of 2020. To do this, Newark's Board of Education— which represents the largest school district in N.J.— implemented a comprehensive plan to reopen schools, including strict COVID-19 protocols and sanitation procedures and a renewed focus on air quality and surface hygiene. To ensure this, Newark tapped Bio-Shine Inc., and installed more than 4,500 Odorox air purifiers, powered by PYURE Technology, in PK-12 classrooms, offices and other high-traffic areas throughout the district.
12/24/2020 Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1 | NEJM
Scientists studied the plausible transmission of SAR-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, through aerosol and fomites on various surface types in an aerosolized environment. The results found that the virus can exist in aerosols for hours and surfaces for days…
12/14/2020 An airborne pathogen requires an air sanitization solution
Dr. Fauci explains to Matthew McConaughey (Now This) that transmission by touching inanimate surfaces is now considered to be a very small percentage of COVID-19 cases (see first 90 seconds in the video), yet most “solutions” in the market to-date only address surface sanitization. PYURE is one of the only technologies to have demonstrated the rapid destruction of airborne SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), killing 99% of a very high concentration of the aerosolized COVID-19 virus in only 20 minutes.
12/03/2020 A Room, A Bar and A Classroom: How the Coronavirus is Spread Through the Air
The risk of contagion is highest in indoor spaces but can be reduced by applying all available measures to combat infection via aerosols. Here is an overview of the likelihood of infection in three everyday scenarios, based on the safety measures used and the length of exposure.
As we approach the end of 2020, and a year since the outbreak of COVID-19 began, cases are increasing again. We have learnt a lot about SARS-CoV-2 and our ability to test for and mange COVID-19 has improved, but ongoing debate remains about how SATS-CoV-2 is transmitted.
12/02/2020 It Is Time to Address Airborne Transmission of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
An open letter to the World Health Organization from 239 scientific experts.
We appeal to the medical community and to the relevant national and inter- national bodies to recognize the potential for airborne spread of coronavirus dis- ease 2019 (COVID-19).
12/01/2020 Purifier Kills 99% of Airborne SARS-CoV-2 in 20 Minutes and Virus is No Longer Detected in Air After 80 Minutes; Purifier Kills 99% of SARS-CoV-2 on Surfaces in 1 Hour and Virus is No Longer Detected on Surfaces After 3 Hours.
The PYURE Company announced that a recently completed study conducted by a certified, biosafety level 3 laboratory demonstrated that a portable commercial air purifier rapidly and dramatically destroys SARS Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19, both in the air and on surfaces.
11/18/2020 The Coronavirus Is Airborne Indoors. Why Are We Still Scrubbing Surfaces?
Scientists who initially warned about contaminated surfaces now say that the virus spreads primarily through inhaled droplets and that there is little to no evidence that deep cleaning mitigates the threat indoors...
07/30/2020 HGI Industries Inc Has Changed its Name to The PYURE Company.
HGI Industries Inc. announced today that it has changed its name to The PYURE Company (“PYURE”). PYURE will continue to market its Odorox® line of products, which it has been selling for over 15 years. Odorox® products are now co-branded with the Powered by PYURE TechnologyTM trademark, to identify the unique hydroxyl technology inside every device.
I would like to share the experience my family has had since bringing an Odorox Slim Line machine in to our apartment.
Please allow me to start by providing some background information. My daughter, who is 6, and I live in a 900 sq ft apartment in a 24 unit building in north Bismarck. We have lived there for over 5 years. My daughter has many health issues including chronic constipation, reflux, sinus issues and her IGG subclass II is low (basic immune deficiency).
Since bringing the Odorox unit in to our home in January, we have had our healthiest winter ever. In the past she has suffered from repeat sinus infections, often times each lasting more than one month. Prior to starting the Odorox Machine she had been fighting the same infection for over three months. We tried three separate rounds of oral antibiotics, an IVIG infusion and IV antibiotics and saw little if any results. Two weeks after instaiing the machine, her congestion was gone and has not returned. Her only infection since was an ear infection. This in itself is nothing sh01i of amazing. She has never gone this long without being placed on some so1i of medicine. We tried allergy medicines, antibiotics (oral and iv), ENT involvement, removed her tonsils and adenoids and nothing provided her with any relief. We also did both skin and blood testing for allergies, both of which came back negative. She herself has noticed the difference and comments on all of the different things she can now smell (flowers, lotions, soaps).
I almost need to mention that I am surprised how well this little machine controls odors.
I can no longer smell what other people in the building are cooking or if they are smoking.
I am truly amazed at the difference this machine has made. I will admit I was highly skeptical that this "magic machine" would do anything for us. In fact, I have even tried shutting the machine off for three days, only to tum it back on as her congestion was returning. I am sold as to the effectiveness and validity of this machine.

The Leonia Board of Education began using the Pyure technology in 2018.
Our districtÕs goal was to improve the indoor air quality in our school buildings. We have been very satisfied with the equipment and the results. When the pandemic broke out in the winter of 2020, we began using the equipment in almost all areas throughout our school district. We knew we needed to increase custodial cleaning and district wide disinfection, however adding the Pyure Odorox technology only increased our overall goal. In March of 2020, we implemented more Pyure Odorox units and have been very satisfied with the results. We intend to have Pyure’s equipment play a major role in our return to school efforts as we move along in the pandemic this winter season.
I welcome any questions and fully endorse the Pyure technology for any school.
