Based on current worldwide concerns about viruses like COVID-19 - as well as other airborne diseases and pollutants, Tatalias, Mirzakhonov and VanderMey developed a product that would use HEPA air filtration and ultraviolet light to help eliminate allergies, diseases and impurities inside of cars.

“Our idea, SAPS (Surface & Air Purification System) addresses the health and safety concerns amidst the coronavirus pandemic,” said Tatalias. “We often spend a lot of time inside a vehicle so we came up with a system that would essentially be a HEPA air purification filter on the AC unit of a car that is integrated with Far-UVC light technology to kill and prevent viruses and bacteria,” she added.

Tatalias is pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in information technology from the Rowland School of Business at Point Park University. She is the daughter of Dina and Bill Tatalias of Bethel Park, Pa.
