GPS: The Leader in Indoor Air Quality. Here’s Why.
From dust and pollen to mold spores and pathogens, indoor spaces are often littered with potentially hazardous airborne pollutants. When it comes to the difficult task of eliminating these particulates, there’s no more trusted name than Global Plasma Solutions. Backed by years of research and engineering, GPS products offer proven effectiveness and unsurpassed protection.
What Is Global Plasma Solutions?
As a recognized leader in indoor air quality, Global Plasma Solutions has always been at the forefront of air purification. For years, GPS engineers have pioneered innovative new approaches to controlling airborne pollutants and pathogens. With over 30 patents, their technologies have found use in more than 150,000 installations around the globe.
Most indoor air quality solutions focus solely on mechanical air filtration. These systems use various types of filter media to physically snag particulates from the air and keep them trapped in place. Unfortunately, many common airborne pollutants are small enough to easily pass through these filters. Electronic air filters may be more effective at trapping tiny particles, but they can also produce dangerous ozone. Global Plasma Solutions systems use proprietary technology to deliver the best of both worlds, offering high-efficiency filtration without attendant safety risks.
The Science of Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization
Every GPS system is built around a sophisticated air filtration technology called needlepoint bipolar ionization. This patented approach utilizes equipment inside your HVAC system to generate a constant electric charge. This charge, in turn, generates high concentrations of positive and negative ions that are circulated through your home or business. These ions are simply atoms or molecules that have unequal numbers of protons and electrons, giving them each an electrical charge.
This imbalance of protons and electrons is the key that makes needlepoint bipolar ionization so effective at air purification. When ions encounter particulates, gases and other pollutants, they’re drawn toward one another by the force of electrostatic attraction. In this way, even submicron particles quickly agglomerate and become large enough to filter effectively. These ions also break down volatile organic compounds and disrupt the surface proteins of pathogens by destroying their hydrogen bonds.
Powerful and Eco-Friendly Air Purification
With the power of needlepoint bipolar ionization, Global Plasma Solutions systems combine exceptional performance with uncompromising safety and efficiency.. This powerful approach has even proven effective at neutralizing the SARS-CoV-2 virus. In testing, GPS’ proprietary technology inactivated up to 99.4% of the virus within just 30 minutes.
Best of all, bipolar ionization systems produce nothing but safe, all-natural ions. Ions are nature’s way of cleansing the air, and they’re often found in abundance near waterfalls, oceans, mountains and forests. Sadly, the processes that generate ions also frequently produce ozone. Ozone is made entirely of oxygen, but it’s deceptively dangerous to breathe. Unlike many other ionic air purifiers, however, GPS air cleaners are certified ozone-free. Benefits of GPS Bipolar Ionization include:
- Produces no harmful byproducts
- Destroys VOCs
- Auto self-cleaning
- Kills pathogens
- Treats in-room air
- No replacement parts
A Perfect Fit for Any Challenge
Global Plasma Solutions systems are designed to be deployed virtually anywhere clean, healthy air is needed. Universal power supplies, modular ionization bars, flexible ionization strips and magnetic mounting options provide excellent flexibility and customization.
GPS systems are ideal for virtually any shared spaces, including:
- Schools, and more
Indeed, some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions rely on needlepoint bipolar ionization technology. This includes:
- The White House
- Mayo Clinic
- Harvard University
- Google’s Mountain View campus
Even serious hazards like airborne pollutants and contagious pathogens are no match for the right technology. With Global Plasma Solutions’ needlepoint bipolar ionization systems, it’s easier than ever to enjoy unmatched safety, comfort and peace of mind.
Carrier Infinity Air Purifier With a 99% Inactivation Rate
To help slow the spread of viruses and germs in your home, Carrier’s Infinity air purifier is tough to beat. This air purifier includes Carrier’s Captures & Kills® technology. This technology offers proven effectiveness when used as instructed, 1 against the following and more:
- Common cold
- Bacteria that causes strep throat
Our Infinity air purifier treats the air flowing through your HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step, charge/capture/kill process that inactivates 99% of select germs and viruses:1 –
Charge – Carrier’s air purifier creates electrically charged ions that attach to airborne, viruses, germs, pollen and dust, along with other particles.
Capture – These particles are then pulled to a pleated filters that is oppositely charged. The strength of this capture rate is similar to how a magnet attracts metal shavings.
Kills – The ionized particles are stay on the pleated filter and are not circulated back into the home. They are subjected to a strong electric field.
Carrier’s Infinity® air purifier will need minimal maintenance, which is the replacement of the purification cartridge plus an inspection and cleaning of the ionization array. How often this maintenance is needed will vary based on individual ductwork design and your specific environmental conditions.
Independent Testing at the University of Colorado
Our confidence with the performance of our Infinity air purifier capturing and killing the coronavirus from filtered air1 is based upon third-party testing at a university environmental engineering laboratory that specializes in disinfection science.
- Tests were conducted with a murine coronavirus that is closely related to the human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.
- The murine pathogen surrogate allowed testing to be completed safely7
Controlled environment tests showed that the Infinity air purifier inactivated 99% of coronavirus on its filter.

1. The Infinity® air purifier has demonstrated effectiveness against the murine coronavirus, based on third-party testing (2020) showing a >99% inactivation, which is a virus similar to the human novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. Therefore, the Infinity air purifier can be expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with its directions for use. Third-party testing (2012, 2007) also shows ≥99% inactivation for the type of virus that causes common colds, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. Airborne particles must flow through your HVAC system and be trapped by the Infinity filter to be inactivated at 99%.
