Air purification company Molekule has announced a new update for its professional-grade purifier, Air Pro. The update adds a robust suite of features designed to gain a more holistic understanding of an environment’s air and react to address harmful pollutants. These updates include an advanced array of sensors, as well as the new Molekule Air Score for indoor environments.
Launched in 2020, Air Pro is the most advanced air purification solution put out by the company. It is designed for both residential and commercial spaces, up to 1000 square feet and has most recently received FDA 510(k) class II medical device clearance for the destruction of viruses, bacteria and mold.
“We’re living during a time when people are hyper-aware of air quality, but don’t necessarily understand the complexities of it,” says Jonathan Harris, CEO of Molekule. “With Air Pro’s new Air Score and enhanced sensor capabilities, we’re giving people next-level access to the advanced insights they need to make more informed decisions and breathe cleaner air. These new capabilities will allow Air Pro customers to see indoor air like never before, thus helping to make the invisible more tangible for users.”
New Updates to the Air Pro System
Following this announcement, all the following features will be made available to current and future Air Pro owners via a free firmware and app update:
- Molekule Air Score: An aggregate air quality measured derived from levels of particulate and chemicals to help customers quickly and easily understand their air quality. Measured from 1-500 with 1 being the least contaminated and 500 being the most, the measurement system provides a more precise look into air quality.
- Additional Sensor Capabilities: New sensors added to the system will now detect VOCs such as limonene and formaldehyde while also displaying relative humidity and CO2, adding onto those already in place to detect PM 1, 2.5 and 10. The company also notes these sensors will be able to detect chemicals produced from wildfire smoke and identify which ones Air Pro can destroy.
- Reactive Auto Protect Mode: Standard and Quiet modes automatically regulate fan speed based on presence of pollutants in the air. With the addition of the new sensors, these setting can better react to changing conditions within a space.
