ULTRAVIOLET (UV) LIGHT KILLS ALL PATHOGENS
Groundbreaking Far UltraViolet (UV) Technology Kills All Surface Pathogens
Far UV Technologies and its partners are developing innovative applications targeting a portion of the UltraViolet (UV) light spectrum called "Far UV" (200-230nm wavelengths) to more effectively and safely treat bacteria, viruses and fungi better than any existing chemical, antibiotic or conventional UV disinfection alternatives.
The Far UV spectrum is the first UV technology that is safe for human and animal exposure and built to be more effective at permanently eradicating disease causing pathogens.
This technology has already been shown to be safe and is recognized by market leaders as the next breakthrough for disinfection technologies. We are working to set industry standards for safety and awareness of this groundbreaking new potential to treat bacteria, viruses and fungi.
HOW IT WORKS
Far UV Light is More Effective and Safer Than Conventional Technologies
Far UV lamps (operating at 222nm) are superior to existing UV sanitation systems (typically operating at 254nm) for a very simple reason: Legacy UV-C sanitation systems are ineffective at disinfecting surfaces or objects that can be reactivated by UV-A light, which includes sunlight, fluorescent lights and other light sources after sanitation.
Most UV-C light above 230nm breaks the chains that hold DNA together, but UV-A light can cause DNA to reactivate and repair itself, This leads to pathogens that can replicate and grow again. Secondly, most UV-C lamps commonly available today can be cancerous and harmful to the skin and eyes. They cannot sanitize human tissue without causing adverse effects and long-term damage.
Far UV is the first UV disinfection system that can safely sanitize human tissue and objects susceptible to photo reactivation after sanitation. It is safe for both skin and eyes, because the light does not pass through the skin cell wall or retina of the eye. It sanitizes surfaces completely without damage to tissue.
The Possibilities Are Endless
This single UV solution could become as important and ubiquitous as the kitchen sink, providing a much more efficient, cost effective and water-less alternative antibacterial solution for large important commercial markets and applications including:
Cleaning and food preparation
Extending food shelf life
Medical facilities, equipment and surfaces
Water or chemical sensitive sites
Commercial and industrial facilities
Public facilities and transportation
Air/HVAC or water purification
Sanitation of consumer electronics
Waterless laundry applications
Deep space exploration
FAR UV TECHNOLOGY USES
MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND SURFACES
CLEAN FOOD PREPARATION
EXTEND FOOD SHELF LIFE
FREQUENTLY TOUCHED ELECTRONICS
DEEP SPACE TRAVEL ENVIRONMENTS
HVAC AND WATER PURIFICATION
FarUV is much safer for eyes and skin than conventional UV sanitation technologies
FarUV is not harmful to the body unlike conventional germicidal UV lamps
