The Atem shifts the paradigm in the ability to control the air we breathe. See how it works and what makes it unique.
Effectively traps ultrafines
Ultrafine particles (smaller than 0.1 microns) are so small that they can move through the lung tissue, into the bloodstream, and then to any organ, including the brain. IQAir technology filters 99% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

Ordinary HEPA filters can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.

smallest airborne particles
of all airborne
Viruses: 0.005 – 0.3 microns
Like bacteria, viruses are organisms that spread airborne diseases as mild as the common cold and as serious as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) through coughs, sneezes and improperly maintained ventilation systems.
Tobacco Smoke: 0.01 – 1 micron
Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body's cells more easily.
Soot: 0.01 – 0.3 microns
Long-term exposure to urban air pollution containing soot increases the risk of coronary heart disease, according to a major study published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2007.

Pet Dander: 0.1 – 25 microns
Pet dander is the old skin and fur that pets shed. Animal dander is very small and can become attached to your clothingeven if you do not own a pet. Dander can be found everywhere: floors, carpets, walls, furniture, bedding, even the ceilings. Pet dander is a known asthma and allergy trigger.
Dust Mites Allergens: 0.2 – 25 microns
House dust mites are considered to be the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. Dust mites themselves do not cause an allergic reaction, however, their dung-pellets are an irritant to sensitive people and can cause breathing difficulties. They thrive in warm, humid, dark conditions such as mattresses, carpets, sheets, pillows, and upholstery.
Bacteria: 0.5 – 10 microns
People spread bacteria through the air when they cough and sneeze, transmitting respiratory diseases and triggering symptoms in asthma sufferers. Bacteria can also grow inside poorly maintained ventilation systems, which spread it into the circulating air.
Household Dust: 1 – 100 micron
Dust may worsen hay fever. Circulating outdoor air through a house by keeping doors and windows open, or at least slightly ajar, may reduce the risk of hay fever-causing dust. In colder climates, occupants seal even the smallest air gaps, and eliminate outside fresh air circulating inside the house. So it is essential to manage dust and airflow.

Mold Spores: 8 – 80 microns
Mold and fungus are commonly found in most homes and may be found in the air ducts of your heating/cooling system. They tend to float throughout the house, and form new colonies where they land. Fungus spores have been known to increase the chances of developing asthma.
Pollen: 10 – 100 microns
One of the most common allergens is pollen. It affects the nose, eyes, and mouth making it difficult to breathe. Most pollen that produces allergic reactions is from trees, grasses, and weeds.
Breathe clean air, anywhere
The Atem makes a perfect travel companion, providing a steady stream of purified air, anywhere. Until now, employees stuck at their desks in offices with Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) or travelers staying in hotels with unpredictable air quality have had little control of the air they breathe. The Atem shifts that power back. Breathe pure air, anywhere.
Clean air. Clear mind
Clean air is essential for proper brain function. Air pollution affects not only brain development but also productivity. Scientific evidence shows that breathing polluted air can impair memory and reasoning, reduce academic performance, and even lower intelligence. Studies are finding that people in areas with high air pollution score lower on cognitive performance tests than those breathing less-polluted air.
Breathe Swiss air, anywhere
What does the cleanest, freshest mountain air smell like? It's a scent that is difficult to describe. That's because it actually smells like nothing at all. Your organization may not be located in a mountain area with beautiful air. However, with the Atem personal air purifier, people can enjoy the sweet smell of nothing – truly clean air – wherever they need to be.
Pure air made portable
IQAir transformed its patented HyperHEPA technology so it can be taken anywhere. Say goodbye to stuffy, dusty hotel rooms, stagnant office air, and even long drives full of pollutant particles and gases. Never before has air filtration at this incredible level been available in a portable, personal air filter with modular mounting systems that allow your Atem to travel from desk, to car, to hotel, and back again.
