UV is a well-known disinfection tool, but it is not safe for human exposure as it degrades DNA in humans, animals and plants. Vital Vio’s technology is much different than a UV lighting disinfectant. Our technology uses LEDs to produce light in the visible region of the spectrum. Though we are sometimes confused with UV, our technology does not emit UV light waves and our method of action for killing bacteria is entirely different and therefore does not pose the same risks.
Our technology harnesses specific wavelengths of visible light to excite certain molecules found in the cells of bacteria, mold and fungi, but not in those of humans, pets and plants. When these molecules are excited it causes a toxic reaction within the cell that leads to death
Chances are that your current cleaning solutions are applied during intermittent cleaning cycles. This allows for intervals of high bacteria growth between these application cycles. By installing our light technology, you can continuously inhibit microbial growth and significantly decrease their presence on surfaces 24/7. This provides a critical no-labor approach to keeping all of our most important spaces better protected.
We currently offer fixtures with Vital Vio technology from our long-time vendor partner Orion Lighting. Their expertise as a leading US manufacturer of LED fixtures coupled with Vital Vio’s antimicrobial technology creates the perfect partnership for products for all types of industries.
Vital Vio has been awarded multiple U.S. Patents for our innovative antibacterial lighting technologies, platforms, and products. Our technology is proven to kill 90%+ of bacteria – including MRSA, E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella and Strep – and other microorganisms. Our solution uses cost-efficient LED technology with no UV rays or harsh chemicals.
Vital Vio’s patented antimicrobial light technology delivers a precise spectrum of visible light (400nm – 420nm) that initiates a photo-activation of porphyrin molecules found exclusively inside microbes (not humans, pets or plants). This photo-activation leads to the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). In high doses, ROS cause irreparable damage to the cellular structure, which leads to bacterial cell death.
