Introducing IAQS Partners
“We know that many airborne infections could be avoided with smarter ventilation, while at the same time improving comfort and saving energy. We join IAQS to share what we have learnt from more than 15 years serving those who work the most sensitive areas of hospitals, mostly operating rooms, and to gain new insights and contacts to help even more avoid these terrible infections.”
Peter Hojerback, CEO of Avidicare
Avidicare AB is a research-based medtech company with a focus on infection prevention with a unique technology for management of airborne bacteria and virus contamination in hospitals. They are leaders in the development of systems for managing airborne bacteria and virus contamination in hospitals. Opragon® is the company’s major product and Opragon is a complete product line for reduction of airborne bacterial contamination in hospitals, primarily for infection sensitive surgery.

“WellAir is pleased to be one of the founding members of the IAQS. IAQS was formed to help translate science and standards into practice by joining forces with other IAQ experts. We believe building a coherent framework for addressing indoor air pollution is imperative. The association will provide key opportunities for multi-disciplinary experts to help educate and inform consumers and ultimately government legislation.”
For over a decade, WellAir (previously Novaerus (Ireland) Ltd.) has been providing medical-grade solutions that address a global problem, the airborne transmission of infection and the general negative impact of poor indoor air quality which is the cause of many virus-based illnesses, bacterial infections, asthma, allergies, and a host of long-term health issues.
Led by a dedicated and highly skilled team of scientists, Wellair took a fundamentally different approach to air disinfection, which led to the transformational development of NanoStrikeTM – the unique, patented technology at the core of all WellAir/Novaerus portable air disinfection devices today. This nanotechnology physically and irretrievably inactivates all airborne microorganisms on contact, providing the first line of effective protection against viruses and bacteria.
Our family of solutions, which also includes HVAC air purification products, forms the basis of our ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of people in the built world. WellAir’s expanding platform of medical-grade solutions includes FDA-cleared products that help protect indoor environments in more than 60 countries. While our foundation is in healthcare, we have a solid footprint in – among others – the commercial, education, hospitality, entertainment, and residential markets.
“The recent outbreak of aerosol-based viruses highlighted the need for innovative tools, methods and visuals for investigating and mitigating the spread of harmful particles. While aerosol simulations provide unparalleled insight on particle dynamics and aerosols spread, they surely rely on suitable channels for being communicated to the public. Simulia – through Dassault Systèmes – is honored to partner with the Indoor Air Quality society and join forces: the mission is increasing the public awareness on health and safety for indoor spaces. The modelization and simulation capabilities on particle and fluid dynamic simulations brought in by Simulia form a strong alliance with the scientific and technological panel of experts and scientists within IAQs.”
Dassault Systèmes provides business and people with virtual universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life.
Within Dassault Systèmes, the applications offered by SIMULIA accelerate the process of evaluating the performance, reliability and safety of materials and products before committing to physical prototypes.
“As a global leader in commercial air purification we joined IAQ Society to network with experts, drive awareness and educate the general public on the importance of indoor air quality.”

AtmosAir are pleased to announce our partnership and alliance with the IAQ Society, a non -profit organization committed to informing and arming industry experts, researchers and regulators and government officials and consumers together with the ability to educate the public at large on the significance of IAQ. Atmos Air understands the value of Indoor Air Quality – air quality is not only linked to numerous health issues, but also determines the quality of life and peace of mind that comes from being assured that the air you are breathing is healthier and free of harmful contaminants.
The pandemic only served to bring greater awareness to the value of IAQ as the reality of what is unseen and invisible demonstrated the potential to cause widespread harm while otherwise remaining undetected. The concern is significant, and as such, publicly trafficked amenities and spaces have recognized the need for proper ventilation and high standards around indoor air quality. At the core of our philosophy at AtmosAir is to constantly research issues of air quality while developing and refining solutions that measure and validate IAQ on a real-time and historical basis. We are looking forward to contributing to the industry leadership through our partnership, with IAQ society, in promoting greater awareness of the benefits of healthier indoor environments.

” Polluted air in the workplace causes big issues because dust and microorganisms can accumulate and spread much faster indoors than outdoors. Currently, the legal limit value for fine dust pollution outdoors is much lower than the limit values from enclosed spaces in the workplace, which can mislead people into not realizing the importance of clean air indoors.
We truly believe that clean air is crucial to the health and wellbeing of all human beings, and to the productivity and efficiency of businesses.
Therefore, we want to team up with IAQS and use their platform to join other companies creating awareness for this topic. Everyone has the right to a healthy work environment and we want help achieving that. “
