Gino: The Personal Air Sanitiser

A revolutionary lightless filter technology that can remove microbes from the air.

Why Gino Is Different And Unique

 Gino is a personal air sanitiser and is aimed specifically at eliminating microbes from the air around you. 

Gino has some unique advantages:

ELIMINATES MICROBES FROM THE AIR. Gino is not a typical air purifier that blocks pollutants and tries to do a little bit of everything. Gino is designed to do one thing really well and this is to destroying microbes from the air. Most air purifiers collect microbes on the filter. The result will be resulting to an increasingly saturated filter that stimulates the growth of mould and is a source of bacteria.

REVOLUTIONARY FILTER TECHNOLOGY.  Gino’s filter is durable, washable and dishwasher safe. It does not allow any mould growth. HEPA-type filters diminish in time and it is likely that those pollutants and microbes are released to the environment.

ELEGANT, UNOBSTRUCTED AND ECONOMICAL DESIGN. It is a simple design and consists of very few component parts. It is a table top design and can be placed near where people sit or interact.

LONG LASTING & SUSTAINABLE. No filter replacement is required for more than 5 years (if used according to manufacturers instructions) and no disposable filters are going to the landfill. Gino technology does not require LEDs that could degrade and dim over time.

EASY TO LIVE WITH. Gino has a very low power consumption and it is quiet to run. It is USB powered and it can run off a power bank for more than 6 hours. Gino also has the lowest power consumption from any air device in the market.

How Gino Works

Gino draws in harmful air from the top and releases microbes-free air at 360° around the device. 

Gino uses a nanotech coating linked to a biocidal active substance*. The process consists of two stages. First, the microbes are attracted to the inner surfaces of the channels in the honeycomb filter where they are then trapped. Second, they are destroyed by a rapid chemical reaction with our novel nanotech surface treatment of the filter channels. 

The treatment causes the microbes to burst like balloons touching a cactus.

*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

Lab Testing

 We believe in scientific evidence and this why we want to share our testing results. 

The efficacy of the coating technology on the surface and in a single air pass was measured with a large range of microbes. The speed of action was also measured and it was found to be less than 2 seconds(due to experimental limitations no faster time has been tested). 

 We have also proven the antifungal properties of our coated filters by comparing them to uncoated ones under humid conditions. This is an extremely important characteristic of our coated filter because mould and other microbes can live and grow on commonly-used filters such as HEPA filters. The image below summarises our findings.

We have assessed the durability of the filters after 25 washing cycles in the dishwasher at 75 °C (without detergent). The efficacy of the coated filters has not changed under those conditions.

Use Gino Everywhere

Unlike larger units that are pushed out into a corner of the room, Gino can be placed near where people interact and can be part of your decoration.

 Gino has a clean air delivery rate of 15 litres per second making it ideal for one-to-one interactions. Gino is not a room air purifier but a personal air sanitiser. Therefore, the number of Ginos required is derived from the number of people that will occupy a space at any time. We recommend approximately one Gino per two individuals.

Gino is USB powered and is applicable to:

  • Small confined space such as cars or toilets/bathrooms
  • Personal work spaces such as desks, retail tills
  • Personal socialisation situations like restaurant tables, coffee tables

You can be creative with Gino.

Gino can be a great centrepiece on your dining table. Gino can sit on the coffee table when you invite friends over. Gino fits in your car as well. Take it with you. Take it to your friends house. Gino can be next to the checkout counter. Gino would be great to be near you when you are at a coffee shop, restaurant or on your work desk.

Often air purifiers are large and noisy and people put them in the corner of the room so that they can be out of the way. This can reduce their effectiveness significantly. Gino is designed to be small and quiet enough that you can put it near where you are in the room without disturbing you.
