ULPA is an acronym for "ultra-low penetration air." ULPA may also be used to refer to ultra low particulate air. A ULPA filter can remove from the air at least 99.999% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and any airborne particles with a size of 120 nanometres (0.12 µm) or larger.
A number of recommended practices have been written on testing these filters including
IEST-RP-CC001: HEPA and ULPA Filters,
IEST-RP-CC007: Testing ULPA Filters,
IEST-RP-CC022: Testing HEPA and ULPA Filter Media, and
