AquiSense launches UV-C LED surface disinfection device for healthcare applications, targeting COVID-19
Nikkiso Group company AquiSense Technologies LLC of Erlanger, KY, USA (which designs and manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems based on UV-C LEDs) has launched the PearlSurface 24G9, one of the first UV-C LED surface disinfection products designed for healthcare applications such as reuse of N95 face mask and other personal protection equipment (PPE).
The PearlSurface 24G9 offers benefits specific to LEDs, including mercury-free lamps, instant-on operation and low cost of ownership, while providing high-power-density, homogeneous disinfection of target objects.
The PearlSurface 24G9 offers simple operation, an integrated timer, low-voltage power supply and compact footprint, suitable for point-of-use hospital settings, care homes, ambulances, police/fire departments, factories, food preparation, etc. AquiSense will offer this product under the current US FDA enforcement relief to deal with immediate COVID-19 emergency use and will simultaneously submit a pre-market approval application.
“We accelerated our product development pipeline in response to immediate global needs for reliable reuse disinfection products,” says CEO Oliver Lawal. “We are fortunate to be able to leverage an existing high-output UV-C LED module from our water treatment products and draw on our experience in rapid hardware design and optical modeling to ensure a high-level disinfection efficacy,” he adds. AquiSense is currently interested in talking to potential partners and distributors for the PearlSurface 24G9.
