Airwise works "outside the box", so it's not necessary for polluted air to actually enter the purifier. Instead, Airwise creates inductive warmth, drawing humidity into the purifier. When humidified air enters the target area, the ultraviolet, germicidal lamp activates the catalyst to produce superoxide ions and hydroxyl radicals. These molecules then migrate throughout the area (will not go through walls or closed doors, but will go around corners) to neutralize toxins by breaking them up on a molecular level, destroying any micro- organism down to .001 micron.
Wisepointe (technology that generates active negative ions, causing dust and other airborne particles to drop out of the air) is the added benefit—increasing the speed at which particulate matter is taken out of your breathing space.
