MELVILLE, N.Y. — Henry Schein announces that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Radic8, a UK-based manufacturer of air purifier systems, to distribute their devices in the U.S. and Canada.*

The Radic8 Viruskiller is currently being marketed under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) enforcement policy for air purifiers during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The product is intended to be effective at killing SARS-CoV-2 based on its demonstrated effectiveness against viruses that are similar to SARS-CoV-2 or are harder to kill.** The results show a 99.9999%, 6 log reduction, kill rate in a single air pass. The kill rate is used to describe what percentage of a given germ is killed by a particular process or disinfectant.

The Radic8 air purifier is available through Henry Schein Dental in three different versions:

• Radic8 Viruskiller 401 (VK 401): The VK 401 is an air purifier for medium to large rooms. This is useful in spaces up to 645 square feet and it drags contaminated air away from the breathing zone. The purified air of the VK 401 is released against both sides of the wall to maximize distribution and create controlled airflow within the space it is covering. With its air exchange capacity, the VK 401 is a good choice for dental operatories, waiting rooms, and sterilization rooms.

• Radic8 Viruskiller 103 (VK 103): The VK 103 draws contaminated air away from the breathing zone in the patient waiting area up to 1076 square feet. The VK 103 unit creates controlled airflow within the space it is covering and can also be used to regulate positive pressure for medical and health care facilities. With its air exchange capacity, the VK 103 is a good choice for large dental waiting rooms and large open operatories.

• Radic8 Hextio: Hextio is a compact air purifier for spaces up to 215 square feet. The Hextio has an optional directional airflow hood and a quiet night mode. The light indicators show when the air is purified, this desktop unit is a good choice for reception desks and small offices.
