A Devon tech firm has developed a Covid-busting sanitizer unit which can disinfect enclosed spaces.
Exeter’s Atmos-Clear Limited has created the UVC (ultraviolet light) unit that can be used in buildings where people have a high risk of contracting the virus.
The Atmos-Clear AIR works by drawing in air and bombarding it with UVC which destroys the DNA structure of viruses, bacteria and moulds, leaving them unable to replicate, effectively killing them. Developed during lockdown and manufactured in Devon, the Atmos-Clear team applied scientifically-known fact to design their Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation unit, and is now in full production.
Managing director Kevin McGuinness said: “We are excited to share the results from the independent laboratory testing which concluded that the Atmos-Clear AIR has an antimicrobial efficacy of 99.9% against microorganisms; bacteria, moulds and viruses, inclusive of Covid-19.”
Shaun Greenslade, sales director, said: “’Normal’ looks quite different these days and we all have to find a way to stay safe and protect our loved ones against Covid-19. It is satisfying to know that we are doing our bit to help protect people.”
Atmos-Clear brand director Josie Turpin is in a “high risk category” for catching Covid-19, and said testing was key to being able to launch in the market place.
She said: “People can be safe in the knowledge that Atmos-Clear AIR products have a proven antimicrobial efficacy of 99.9% against microorganisms; bacteria’s, moulds and viruses, which can include Covid-19.”
The AIR UVC sanitizer is available direct from Atmos-Clear Limited or through its existing distribution network. Mr McGuinness said Atmos-Clear is now interested in engaging further with investors or distributors who may have interest in the product.
