All tests were performed in accordance with RTI's Bioaerosol Inactivation Efficiency by HVAC In-Duct Ultraviolet Light Air Cleaner, a supplement to 'Test/Quality Assurance Plan for Biological and Aerosol Testing of General Ventilation Air Cleaners' which was approved by EPA. Testing for biological inactivation was performed using three organisms--two bacteria (Bacillus atrophaeus and Serratia marcescens) and one bacterial virus (MS2). To model use in a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, RTI used a test duct designed for testing filtration and inactivation efficiencies of aerosol, bioaerosol, and chemical challenges.
