Consumer electronics company Velocilinx has developed the “Germinator”, an ultraviolet type-C (UVC) sanitizing wand that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. The Germinator is the first product in the new MedTech category for Velocilinx and they are taking orders for the wand now.
Leveraging recent developments in UVC technologies, the Velocilinx team designed and is now manufacturing a product that:
- Contains 20 LEDs specially designed to emit UVC radiation and destroy germs.
- Kills 99.9% of germs and viruses at the molecular level that is environmentally friendly.
- Is simple in design and to use, requiring 5-10 swipes to clean the exposed surface in under one minute.
- Includes seven safety features to prevent the user from causing personal harm.
“We’ve seen the outcry for cleaning supplies created by the COVID-19 pandemic as stockpiles run low everywhere. We know that the ability to disinfect and clean our homes, our workplace, and other areas we touch or frequent is more vital than ever. So we went to the drawing board and sought to create something that did the job of a disinfectant but was also easy-to-use and environmentally safe,” said John Dimovski, CEO of Velocilinx.
“Velocilinx is now offering the Germinator UV wand as another tool capable of sanitizing surfaces and objects but without introducing chemicals or waste into the environment and with the benefit of long-term reuse simply through recharging the device,” said Kathleen Murray, Chief Creative Officer of Velocilinx.
UVC is a naturally-occurring form of light and has been used to sanitize air, water and surfaces for more than 100 years. The EPA has deemed UVC to be a safe and effective way to sanitize and it does not discolor or damage surfaces. Typically used on an industrial scale, UVC LEDs are the same technology used in hospitals to sterilize entire rooms or in municipalities for water supplies. Velocilinx is making this technology available in a portable, simple, yet effective design.
The Germinator has been independently lab tested and verified for its use as a disinfectant. Veloclinix is hoping that by providing a reusable disinfecting tech solution for individual use people will be able to worry less about how to stay safe.
