VALENCIA, Calif. — UltraViolet Devices Inc. (UVDI) announced its V-MAX™ UV-C air disinfection technology has achieved 99.99% inactivation of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) in a single-pass in moving airstream HVAC testing. The testing was conducted at Innovative Bioanalysis, a BEI-recognized BSL-3 laboratory in California.
“This novel testing underlines UVDI’s UV-C technology’s effectiveness against airborne SARS-CoV-2,” said Dr. Ashish Mathur, Ph.D., UVDI vice president of Innovation and Technology. “The study results are further evidence that UVDI provides proven airstream protection — and peace-of-mind — for critical infrastructure globally such as airports, healthcare facilities, schools, and government buildings, as well as for high-traffic public spaces such as arenas, sports facilities, and hospitality sites.”
“UVDI is committed to doing all we can to help people get back to normal as quickly and safely as possible, whether at work, in school, or travelling,” said Peter Veloz, UVDI CEO. “Providing clean, disinfected air is core to this mission and relies on the highest levels of scientific proof. We are proud that UVDI’s advanced UV-C air and surface disinfection products have now both been proven to inactivate SARS-CoV-2 in rigorous, innovative, and independent laboratory testing.”
