Sleek, compact and easy to use, the portable, ozone-free device also removes mould, allergens and chemical toxins – perfect for your home and workspace.
Using its advanced air filtration and sterilisation technology, the plug and play device provides clean, odourless air for rooms up to 20m².
Multiple HEXTIO units may be used throughout a home. Typically one device per room is recommended.
If you have a large open plan home then you may like to consider the Viruskiller VK401 which is suited to spaces up 60m².
Hextio personal air steriliser
Designed for targeted protection of a single person in a smaller space, the stylish unit is great for desktops, bedside tables and small bathrooms. It can even be used on the go. The airflow hood directs air to surround you with a clean air cloud, while the travel pack (sold separately) is great for people always on the move.
Hextio Product Features
Reactor chamber technology
Hextio brings Radic8’s cutting-edge reactor chamber air cleaning technology – the highest-certified clean air tech in the world – into a small, affordable package perfect for the home or office. Most purifiers capture particles only as small as 0.3 microns. The Hextio goes beyond this by passing air through its patented reactor chamber.
UV light protection
Within the reactor chamber, high-powered UVC lamps are surrounded by a mesh of chromed nano titanium dioxide tube filters, polished with activated carbon. The UV light reacts with the mesh in a process call photocatalytic oxidation to produce hydroxyl radicals. These act as a disinfectant for the air, breaking down organic molecules, neutralising airborne viruses and providing a 99.9999% virus kill rate in single air pass.
99.9999% virus kill rate
The reactor chamber technology at the heart of Hextio has been independently verified to achieve a 99.9999% kill rate on the coronavirus family, and most recently the SARS-CoV-2 virus that leads to Covid-19, as well as influenza virus, poliovirus and adenovirus.
It has also been shown to achieve the same results when tested against bacteria including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Aspergillus niger.
Single pass air filtration
By reaching a 99.9999% virus kill rate in a single air pass, Radic8’s clean air technology provides pathogen-free air into the breathing space for real-time protection. Other systems that claim to kill airborne viruses require multiple air passes to eradicate them, meaning cross contamination is possible as viruses that remain in the filtered air are pushed back into the breathing zone.
Combined carbon & HEPA filter
The carbon & HEPA filter neutralises most gases and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) for odourless air, and traps air particles as small as 0.3 microns such as dust, allergens and mould – great for those suffering from asthma or hayfever. What’s more, the filter is positioned for easy cleaning – any viruses or bacteria have been sterilised within the reactor chamber before the air reaches the filter, making it safe to handle.
Hextio is designed to draw exhaled air down, through the intake for filtering and sterilising, before sending sterilised air back into the breathing area. This laminar airflow pulls contaminated air away from the breathing area, replacing it with clean, fresh air. This process also reduces surface settlement of contaminants that pose a risk to touch.
Automatic air monitoring
The inbuilt sensor detects increased levels of pollution and automatically switches to turbo mode until the air quality is safe to breathe again, without any need for action from you.
A super quiet night mode, with no indicator light, means you can leave it on while you sleep without any disturbance.
No ozone is generated by Hextio. The UVC lamp is certified to work ozone-free for its entire recommended life.
Hextio only uses 15W of power, so you can even use it with a 12V output power bank (sold separately) – great for mobile use.

Replacement combined carbon & HEPA filter
Where can I buy replacement filters?
It is good practice to clean the carbon & HEPA filter once a month using a vacuum cleaner if necessary. It should be changed every 6 months. Conscious Spaces offers a replacement air filter pack.
Where can I buy replacement reactor cells?
These should be replaced after 8,000 hours use (11 months continuous runtime). Conscious Spaces offers replacement reactor modules.
Where can I buy optional extras?
How is the technology tested?
Radic8’s patented reactor chamber technology undergoes frequent testing with leading laboratories, universities and bioaerosol experts to ensure its claims are backed by the best available experimental and real-world data. These tests have shown a 99.9999% kill rate of viruses killed, near 100% removal of bacteria, mould and fungi, the neutralisation of gases and VOCs, and highly effective trapping of particulates.
Which viruses, bacteria and gases have been tested?
Viruses tested include poliovirus, influenza, adenovirus, coronavirus DF2 (the same family as SARS-CoV-1) and SARS-CoV-2 (which leads to Covid-19) with no detection of these viruses after a single air pass. Bacteria tested include E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Aspergillus niger (black mould) again with no detection following a single air pass. Hazardous gases tested include Acetic acid, eradicated from the area within 30 minutes, and Acetaldehyde, eradicated within 2 hours.

Which Radic8 Air Filter is most suitable for my needs?
The main differences between the Radic8 devices are the area and speed in which they cover. The Hextio is the world’s most advanced air filter, air purifier and air steriliser for areas up to 20sqm; making it ideal for individual use. It takes 85 minutes to exchange all the air in a room of this size (20sqm). The VK401, the next one up, covers 60sqm and takes 36 minutes to exchange all the air in a room of this size (it’s even faster at doing rooms that are smaller than 60sqm). The VK401 covers 60sqm and takes 36 minutes to exchange all the air in a room of this size (it’s even faster at doing rooms that are smaller than 60sqm). The VK401 combines pre filter, HEPA filter, activated carbon and the reactor cell of 8 super UVC lamps with 40 TiO2 hexagon filters, making it the ultimate solution for spaces up to 60 square meters.
The right air filter for you depends on the size of the space you’d like covered as well as the amount of people traffic there will be in that area.
Why should I purchase a Radic8 Air Filter rather than another brand on the market?
Radic8 provides world-leading solutions for air filter, air sterilisation and air quality problems in a wide range of market sectors. The patented, core technology has been tested against Coronavirus DF2, Adenovirus, Influenzavirus and Poliovirus. The results show a 99.9999% virus kill rate in a single air pass. From our research, other brands took much longer to purify the air, they had higher rates of RF radiation, and didn’t have multi-filter technologies, such as HEPA, carbon and UV light (which the Radic8 products do). For instance, another popular brand takes 21 days to purify the air, whereas HEPA filters work within hours, because they use a thermodynamic incinerator (heat) to kill microorganisms. We love the Radic8 Air Filters because they use multi-filter technologies (HEPA, carbon, UV light) and they have minimal RF radiation which is in line with our ethical ethos.
How often do the replacement parts for the Hextio Air Filter need to be replaced?
It's good practice to clean the Carbon & HEPA filter once a month (you can do this using a vacuum cleaner). This filter should be replaced every 6 months. The cost of this is £18.00.
The Reactor Cell should be replaced after 8,000 hours use (11 months continuous runtime). The cost of this is £95.00
