Mold Magnet is a bio-molecular formulation that was developed to aid in the capture of biological microbes from an air stream. The initial intent of this solution was to provide better specimen capturing for test purposes. This scientific research aid was found to have the practical application of improved microbial filtration for the HVAC industry.
Mold Magnet has been tested by NIOSH / CDC to efficiently capture viral particles from air samples. In testing using standard HVAC filters, Mold Magnet provided 1000 times higher capture rates for microbes than filters that were not treated with Mold Magnet. In lower quality filters, like standard home furnace filters, the MERV Rating was increased up to 7 units. For example, a MERV 6 Filter would effectively capture microbes like mold, bacteria and viruses more like a MERV 13 filter.
