The Science

Why Use UV-C Light?

UV-C, a short-wavelength ultraviolet light, breaks up the genetic material of the pathogens sticking to surfaces so that they cannot function or reproduce. The 200-280 nm UV-C bandwidth has been recognized for its germicidal effects in many publications and by the International Ultraviolet Association. The Aluvis system uses 254nm UVC-C bandwidth. UV-C light has been scientifically proven to be effective against Corona Viruses.*
Our Aluvis sanitizing system is 99.9% effective in removing the most commonly found pathogens. We have the lab-tested, 3rd party verified results to prove it.

Laboratory Testing

Aluvis was tested to be effective against the following pathogens by Environmental Safety Technologies, Inc., an independent AIHA-LAP, LLC Accredited Environmental Microbiology Laboratory.

All tests were done in 5% serum equating to a simulated bio-burden on top of the organism itself.

The Results

Clostridium difficile (C.Diff): 99.9% effective.
Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA): > 99.9% effective.
Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE): > 99.9% effective.
Acinetobacter baumannii: > 99.9% effective.

A Green Technology

With UV-C light sanitizing, we eliminate the need for waste paper or harmful chemicals.
UV-C light doesn't corrode sensitive touch screens in the way hospital grade chemical wipes do. Use of these chemicals often operate as a deterrent for staff and visitors to actually comply with sanitation protocols. UV-C light can be used safely on a wide variety of devices with no risk of damage.
Paper products impregnated with antimicrobial chemicals or hand sanitizers with plastic dispenser bottles are the most common means of sanitization and contribute to the on-going environmental challenge of reducing plastics.
Aluvis is Green
