Dr. Minghsun Liu, a microbiologist and infectious disease specialist, explained:

UVC light is a proven and great approach to rapid room disinfection and is an affordable game-changing addition to disinfection technology. Testing by Intertek Labs USA verified its effectiveness by inactivating up to 99.9% of virus[es] and bacteria in a 16″ X 16″ room in 5 minutes. The system is a cost-effective and efficient solution to meet the safety and sanitary needs of today’s challenging environment.

With its patent-pending design, independent Intertek Labs USA-verified test results proving up to 99.9% disinfection of virus and bacteria, and its 300w 60,000+ hour UVC induction lamp, UVC PureLight 360​ can be a smart investment for hotels, medical offices or other industries looking to provide safe spaces.

The disinfection system features user-friendly manual and wireless controls, a durable design, multiple safety features, long-lasting bulbs, and a maximum output precisely calculated and proven to be effective against virulent pathogens so it is tough on bacteria and viruses, and there are no odors or chemical residues left behind, says the company.

Philip H. Brodsky, Ph.D., Chemical Engineering, stated:

I am impressed with the ease of use and versatility of this innovative product. It should be ideally suited for applications such as medical offices, hotel rooms, conference rooms and other indoor spaces.

The disinfection and sanitization device kills up to 99.9% of microorganisms, such as the common flu/cold, SARS, MERS, and H1N1, by harnessing the power of light.

Alan Mandel, CEO and co-founder of UVC PureLight 360, remarked:

Facing the new reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and institutions are still relying on manual and insufficient disinfection techniques that involve the use of harsh chemicals and sprays that only clean surface areas. We realized that there was a better way to disinfect pathogens, without the use of chemicals, in a safe, automated way by harnessing the power of UVC light.

Justin Miller, chief technology officer and co-founder of UVC PureLight 360, added:

We have utilized a unique combination of proven century-old induction UVC lighting with the latest in LED technology to create a powerful ultraviolet disinfection system. Our system is easy to operate with an onboard control panel or wirelessly via Bluetooth or WiFi with our free companion app. Safety features include remote emergency shutoff and integrated 360-degree sensors that automatically turn off the ultraviolet light upon sensing motion in the room.

By leveraging its industry expertise and vast sourcing networks and by streamlining its manufacturing process, UVC PureLight 360​ will be sold at a much lower pricepoint than comparable models, says the company. The company is taking reservations for October 2020 delivery. Visit the UVC PureLight 360 website to learn more.
