I agree with Mickie.  I have been using the unit from Creative Waste Solutions for awhile now and feel it works very well.

Call Rex Johnson (no relation to me) at Creative Waste Solutions in
Portland, OR. His number is 503-963-8037,
toll free 888-795-8300. He has a very effective charcoal filtered air
purifier as well as some organic odor reducer spray which works amazingly

Subject: [Histonet] Air purifiers

Hello All,
Does anyone out there have first hand experience with the air purifiers
sold by EMS (Electron Microscopy Sciences)?  The web link is pasted
below and the pitch (from that site) is also pasted below. I called to
see if I could "demo" one but they don't do that.  So, obviously I'm
reluctant to purchase without having some assurance that they will
indeed make a difference in the air quality in my gross tissue
dissection room (formalin, xylene, biologic odors, etc.)

Are there others in the marketplace that people could recommend?
Thanks in advance.

Lab Air System; Electronic Air Purifiers

How do they work ?
Electronic Air Purifiers produce a controlled level of Ozone
electrically by converting molecules of Oxygen (O2 ) into molecules of
Ozone (O3). Ozone, sometimes called activated oxygen, as part of the
process of returning to oxygen, casts off its extra atom. That extra
atom combines with the molecule of the odor's source and thereby
destroys the odor by oxidation. Once Ozone's extra atom is consumed
fresh air is left behind which was created by a natural process.

Lab-Air Units produce a safe unsaturated level of activated oxygen that
neutralizes harmful fumes and eliminates problem odors from organic
materials as well as some commonly used chemicals such as: Formaldehyde,
Xylene, Toluene, Glutaraldehyde, Alcohol, Acetone.
