GRAND HAVEN—The Grand Haven ultraviolet light disinfecting technology developer UV Angel announced two new UV-C light devices to autonomously and continuously treat the air and surfaces for harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses.
UV Angel’s newest products—the UV Angel Air and the UV Angel Adapt—provide customers in the health care and other industries with new tools for the fight against infectious diseases, including COVID-19.
“We believe rapid deployment of UV Angel technology in hospitals around the country can provide immediate support to our healthcare workers on the frontlines of the fight against bacteria, fungus and viruses like COVID-19,” said Tom Byrne, CEO of UV Angel. “We are actively shipping our products to hospitals and military facilities throughout the country including a VA hospital in Pennsylvania and an Air Force Base Medical Center. While there are no environmental treatment technology silver bullets, it’s critical we provide these healthcare workers with as many layers of protection as we can to help keep them safe and in the fight.”
Infection prevention is increasingly critical in today’s health care settings, fact brought into stark reality by the current global pandemic. UV Angel Air and UV Angel Adapt help address concerns by using patented UV-C light treatment technology to automatically and continuously treat the air and surfaces.
“Many harmful pathogens are very sensitive to ultraviolet light,” said Linda Lee, chief science and medical officer and national environmental health expert. “UV Angel Air can neutralize bacteria, fungi and viruses, including coronaviruses, traveling through the air, with applications not only in health care, but also in many commercial building and transportation environments, including corporate offices, dental, education, airplanes, cruise ships, ride shares, food service and more.”
With a modern integrated design, UV Angel Air combines its proprietary UV-C air treatment system with standard in-ceiling lighting, requiring no staff interaction. Air is circulated through a sealed UV-C chamber, where it is treated with a high intensity UV-C light. The treated air is then returned to the room, creating a measurably healthier and safer environment.
To treat frequently touched surfaces, UV Angel Adapt uses an intelligent, automated UV-C light treatment platform to continuously monitor and safely treat surfaces hundreds of times per day. UV Angel Adapt can be attached to keyboards, touch screens and a wide range of other frequently touched surfaces.
” We have assembled a group of truly dedicated experts that have many years of real-world experience engineering and deploying safe, effective UV-C technology. The UV Angel series of products can give patients, health care professionals and their loved ones greater peace of mind,” Byrne said.
