Idaho Company Produces Technology Aimed At Protecting Against COVID-19

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


Finding ways to keep people safe from COVID-19 while indoors during the cold weather months has caused some to turn to a technology called ionization. The modern version of this centuries-old technology is called needlepoint bipolar ionization, and a Nampa company has been installing it in businesses, healthcare buildings, schools and government buildings to kill airborne coronavirus molecules.


Joining us to talk about this technology is Global Plasma Solutions Founder and Chief Technical Officer Charlie Waddell, engineer Dan Russell of Norbryhn Equipment Company in Nampa, and Jason Clay, Director of Operations for the McCall Donnelly School District, which installed the technology in all its buildings.
