NS Nanotech and Kryptolights Team Up to Offer Far-UVC Products
NS Nanotech Will Highlight Groundbreaking Ultraviolet Disinfection Solutions at CES
Ann Arbor, MI, Jan. 05, 2020—Kryptolights is utilizing revolutionary technology in a new suite of commercial and residential products poised to redefine the way we cleanse pathogens from the environment and interact with the world around us. Known as ShortWaveLight™ Emitters, NS Nanotech’s groundbreaking nanotechnology neutralizes coronavirus and other pathogens with far-UVC disinfecting light.
At the virtual CES consumer electronics exhibition next week, NS Nanotech will highlight its ShortWaveLight™ Emitter technology, including applications that Kryptolights has under development to clean air and surfaces. Registered attendees will be able to visit the NS Nanotech virtual CES booth to learn more (search “NS Nanotech” in the CES exhibitor directory).
“This essential technology is vital to curbing the current pandemic and in preventing one in the future. Many industries could utilize our products to regain people’s trust by offering customers a clean environment to conduct business,” explains Kryptolights Co-Founder Shey Godoy. “We know this tech will be a big part of the future. This spectrum of light offers normalcy, as it can seamlessly integrate into people’s businesses and lives.”
Far UVC: A New Kind of UV Disinfection
The market for disinfection solutions utilizing ultraviolet light is 100 years old. But the COVID-19 pandemic set suppliers in the UV market on fire in 2020 to address the unprecedented disruption to the global economy and daily life for communities worldwide. The range of UV light known as far-UVC can inactivate pathogens, including coronaviruses, by attacking their RNA and making it impossible for them to reproduce. And recent scientific studies have found that with its short wavelength of 230 nanometers or less, far-UVC light does not penetrate living cells on the surfaces of skin and eyes.
“Revolutionary solid-state nanotechnologies from NS Nanotech are making it practical to deploy shortwave far- UVC light in many settings,” says Godoy. “Unlike standard UV bulbs, which operate at high temperatures and require the use of caustic gases, the solid-state ShortWaveLight™ Emitters run cool, are smaller, and do not use dangerous materials. Whereas previous UV emitters were difficult to operate, now we can bring Kryptolights UltraClean™ solutions to the market and make a difference in everyone’s lives.”
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Kryptolights on the eve of CES, where we can showcase the revolutionary properties and potential of far-UVC disinfecting light,” says NS Nanotech CEO and Co- Founder Seth Coe-Sullivan. “We designed our new solid-state far-UVC ShortWaveLightTM Emitters to be useful for thousands of applications that will protect consumers and businesses from coronavirus and future pathogens. Kryptolights is an early adopter already developing innovative far-UVC disinfection solutions that we expect will have a big impact in the near future and in coming years.”
