How GPS Technology Provides Cleaner, Healthier Indoor Air

Cleaning, sanitizing, and maintaining properties has never been a larger undertaking than it is right now.


The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new safety and cleaning protocols for restaurants, office buildings, and other businesses throughout the United States. When summer hit its peak and the look-ahead to fall began, it was time to start thinking about welcoming faculty, students and staff back to campus.

While no one knows for certain what campus life will be like for the upcoming academic year, we do know it will be different. When people begin to return to campus, the No. 1 priority will be keeping them safe. Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) is an experienced, technology-focused provider of solutions that clean the air of pathogens and other particles that contribute to the spread of viruses – including the novel coronavirus.

Classrooms, campus buildings, and other school settings regularly feature a large number of people in a confined area. In order to reduce the spread of disease and limit a virus’s infectivity, you need solutions that are up for a challenge. GPS products are installed at over 250,000 locations including colleges and universities, where GPS technology safely and effectively improves the quality of indoor air.

GPS’ ionization technology, through the process of needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI)™️, makes a significant impact on air quality. GPS technology delivers ionization through the HVAC system, reducing the volume of infectious pathogens in the air. Independent laboratory studies have shown reduced infectivity of certain viruses by 90% or more.*

In addition to the safety benefits of GPS technology, these products are also cost-efficient. There’s no recurring cost after installation, and with low current draw, this technology uses less energy and keeps utility costs down. No complex wiring, no messy installation.

Visit GPS’ education page for details and additional information on NPBI™️, which will help you take action toward a safer, cleaner campus environment.


*Disclaimer: Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) uses multiple data points to formulate performance validation statements. GPS technology is used in a wide range of applications across diverse environmental conditions. Since locations will vary, clients should evaluate their individual application and environmental conditions when making an assessment regarding the technology’s potential benefits.

The use of this technology is not intended to take the place of reasonable precautions to prevent the transmission of pathogens. It is important to comply with all applicable public health laws and guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments and health authorities as well as official guidance published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (, including but not limited to social distancing, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and the use of face masks.
