Signify launched its EcoLink Air Purifier with UV-C technology in India. This air purifier is designed to purify and disinfect air at the same time and is equipped with a HEPA filter and UV-C lamps. While the HEPA filters help purify the air by removing dust, pollen and other particulate matter, the UV-C technology helps to inactivate airborne pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2. UV-C is a well-established method of disinfection, used to prevent the spread of diseases by disinfecting air, water and surfaces. All bacteria and viruses tested to date respond to UV-C disinfection.
After expanding the EcoLink portfolio earlier this year by introducing a range of EcoLink fans, the company has now grown its footprint in the electrical goods segment by launching its air purifier in the country.
As per an air quality report released by a Swiss organization, IQAir, 22 of the 30 most polluted cities in the world, including 14 in the top 15, are in India. Local sources of pollution such as vehicles, industrial emissions, construction and stubble burning result in high concentrations of PM2.5 (ultrafine particulate matter with diameter less than 2.5 micrometers) in the air. Additionally, indoor air pollutants like dust mites, mold spores, bacteria and viruses can result in a wide variety of adverse health effects such as several diseases, headaches and respiratory disorders. Further compounding this problem is the current pandemic. A recent report in the medical journal Lancet also highlights a consistent and strong evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19 is also predominantly transported through air.
The EcoLink Air Purifier with UV-C technology provides an effective solution to this problem by offering dual benefits of air purification and disinfection. It follows a two-step process, wherein the air first passes through an H12 HEPA filter, that filters out dust, allergens, spores, pollen, pet dander and other particulate matter. Next, the hi-powered UV-C lamps inside the chamber emit UV-C radiation, inactivating all known bacteria, viruses and other microbes giving out pure and healthy air. The UV-C lamps are placed inside the HEPA drum which in turn also helps to inactivate microbes and pathogens that maybe trapped in the filter itself.
A single unit can purify a standard size room in just ten minutes. The unit comes with a user-friendly and intuitive one-touch panel displaying fan speed, temperature and air quality index (AQI). It is safe to use, easy to maintain and has automatic indicators for UV-C lamp and HEPA filter replacements. The unit is available in a black or white version and comes in three sizes: small, medium and big, for efficient performance in a variety of room sizes. The UV-C technology used in the purifier has been validated by Boston University to effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as other bacteria and viruses.
Talking about the new launch, Sumit Joshi, CEO and Managing Director, Signify Innovations – South Asia, said, “With growing evidence about the air-borne transmission of COVID-19, we need to pay close attention to the quality of the air we breathe. While air purifiers can eliminate indoor air pollutants, the urgent need of the hour is a device that not only purifies air, but also disinfects it. We have leveraged our 35 years of expertise in UV technology to develop this device that addresses the growing need for air purification and disinfection in a world that is still reeling under the pressure of COVID-19. With this launch, we are reinventing the air purification category by adding a layer of UV-C protection against respiratory infections caused by air-borne viruses and bacteria including SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19.”
Signify has been at the forefront of UV technology for more than 35 years and has a proven track record in developing innovative UV-C disinfection solutions. UV-C breaks down the DNA or RNA of microorganisms including viruses and bacteria, rendering them harmless.
Coolest Gift That You Can Buy for Your Dad This Father’s Day
The pandemic has allowed all of us to spend more time indoors with our family and loved ones in the comfort of our homes. But the air we breathe indoors may not always be clean and pure. Today, we understand that there is much more in the air than just pollution. What we breathe in every day can impact our health in many ways we may not even recognize, from tiredness, fatigue, and headaches to more severe health conditions like asthma, heart disease, and even cancer.
With the ongoing pandemic, it is so important that we invest in novel solutions that can quickly help clean our air, remove pollutants, and reduce the risk of viral exposure in any way possible. Father’s Day is just right around the corner, and it is the perfect time to find your dad a wonderful gift that can also add a protective layer of clean air around him. Whether your dad is tech-savvy or not, picking up a Molekule Air Purifier, especially during these times when health is of utmost priority, will definitely get you endless brownie points. Check out both Air Mini and Air Mini+ on Amazon.in.
Here are the top reasons for you to pick up a Molekule Air Purifier for your father, and you’ll never regret it.
Molekule devices are enabled with award-winning Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology, which captures and destroys viruses, bacteria, allergens, mold, and other pollutants that are present in the air, as opposed to the regular HEPA technology. PECO (Photo ElectroChemical Oxidation) is a fundamentally new approach that cleans the air at a molecular level. Instead of just filtering the air of larger particles like a traditional HEPA filter, PECO technology destroys microscopic pollution in the air, thereby leaving a layer of fresh, clean air in the room.
Molekule’s air purification PECO technology has been demonstrated to inactivate up to 99.99% of coronavirus strains (porcine & bovine) and H1N1 flu virus in a recent study with the University of Minnesota, USA. Additionally, in the US, Molekule products have been cleared as Class II Medical devices for the destruction of viruses and bacteria by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Molekule Air Mini + comes with enhanced features such as Particle Sensor and Auto Protect Mode that are in sync with today’s consumer requirements. The particle sensor in the Air Mini+ detects particulate matter in the air of the room in which it operates and rates the air quality from “Good” to “Very bad,” offering a glance into your indoor air quality. The Auto Protect mode in the Air Mini+ will automatically adjust its fan speed based on pollutants sensed in the air. With these features, it intelligently purifies the air around it in real-time. Consumers can control their Air Mini+ and receive status updates on their air purifier’s filters via the Molekule app, available on both iOS and Android.
Not just functionalities, Molekule air purifiers ace the design aesthetics as well. The products feature a minimalistic design and a sleek, beautiful look that is a perfect addition to your homes. For Molekule, environmental sustainability is always a key consideration in terms of material and finishing. The packaging is done with 100% recycled materials. The handle is made of vegan leather, and there’s a no-paint finishing on plastic parts for the products. In fact, the textured exterior of the air purifiers removes the need for paint that can introduce VOCs into the home.
Both Molekule products for the Indian market (Air Mini and Air Mini+) are available at a discounted price of INR 31,999 and INR 36,999 respectively on Amazon.in in response to the covid situation in the country. The discount is for an indefinite period. The products are whisper-quiet, ozone-free, and are ideal for apartments and home offices. They are compact, easily portable, and fit comfortably in most places, which makes them easy to place next to potential sources of airborne pollutants.

Consumers can control their Air Mini+ and receive status updates on their air purifier’s filters via the Molekule app, on iOS and Android.
“With the pandemic leaving many of us confined to the four walls of our homes, it is more important than ever to use effective air purification technology that not only filters or collects, but also destroys viruses, bacteria, and other pollutants that exist in the air we breathe,” says Jaya Rao, CEO and Co-Founder of Molekule. “Molekule’s mission is to deliver clean air to everyone, everywhere, and the launch of our second product, Air Mini+, in India is another step in that direction. We have a deep commitment to India and we will continue to grow our presence in the country to ensure that the people of India have access to clean, safe air.”
Molekule Air Mini+ is compact and fits comfortably in most places, which makes it easy to place next to potential sources of airborne pollutants. It is 30 cm high x 20 cm wide and weighs 3.3 kgs. It is designed for rooms up to 23 sq meters and is an ideal choice for apartments, bedrooms, and home offices. The purifier has 5 different fan speeds that can be adjusted as required. The energy consumption is between 20-55 watts, and the noise level varies between 39-62dBA, pending fan speed.
Molekule’s proprietary PECO technology is developed by the award-winning Dr. D. Yogi Goswami, a Non-Resident Indian (NRI), a distinguished professor, and world-renowned solar scientist. Based on more than 25 years of research and development, PECO (Photo Electrochemical Oxidation) technology is a fundamentally new approach using photocatalysis and oxidation that destroys the widest range of pollutants, including VOCs, mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens, compared to traditional air purifiers. Molekule air purifiers have PECO-Filters coated in a proprietary catalyst, which, when activated by UV-A light, releases hydroxyl radicals that safely and efficiently break the molecular bonds of viruses, bacteria, mold, allergen, odors, pollen, dander, and more.
Molekule’s Senior Director of Research and Development, Jaspreet Dhau, said, “India is still in the midst of an unprecedented spike in COVID-19 cases, a virus that can be transmitted from person to person by exposure to aerosolized respiratory droplets. As a result, adequate indoor air purification and ventilation are as important as ever.”
Molekule’s PECO technology is whisper-quiet, certified ozone-free, and has a strong proven history of using oxidation to destroy airborne pollutants at the molecular level. Several independent air quality testing laboratories and internal testing have validated the effectiveness of Molekule’s proprietary PECO technology, backed by testing papers available on Molekule’s India website.
