Vital Vio’s VioSafe™ germ killing LEDs have been selected by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of its “100 Infection Control Products to Know” in 2018.
Becker’s noted: “By using Vital Vio’s LED technology, which is safe for continuous human exposure, with traditional cleaning, hospitals are able to decrease contamination and infection risk.”

Hospitals, other health facilities, and even ambulance services can add a new layer of infection prevention with the flip of a light switch with Vital Vio’s VioSafe Antibacterial LEDs. Powered by Vital Vio’s proprietary White Light Disinfection™ technology, these LEDs multi-task to illuminate while safely, effectively, and continuously killing bacteria and other harmful organisms including Listeria, MRSA, Salmonella, E. coli, and C. diff. growing on interior surfaces.
Independent research published in an open forum article by Oxford University Press has shown that used in combination with traditional intermittent cleaning in hospitals, homes, public spaces, and workplaces, VioSafe™ LED’s dramatically reduce contamination and infection risk.
CEO Colleen Costello, who co-founded Vital Vio in 2013 after her grandmother contracted MRSA during a hospital stay, said: “We applaud Becker’s for their attention to this vexing problem of infection in hospitals and health facilities, and appreciate being included as part of the solution.”
“Germs are pervasive and preventing deadly infections caused by the spread of these bacteria and other harmful organisms is a constant and costly battle. With our VioSafe technology, we have reinvented disinfection; putting light to work in a new way to safely, effectively, and continuously kill germs,” Costello said.
Vital Vio’s technology has diverse applications across multiple markets. For example, Duke Athletics Department added an innovative layer of infection protection for its students and staff by incorporating VioSafe dual mode troffer antibacterial lights into its training facilities; Boston-based Chicken & Rice Guys incorporated VioSafe replacement tubes into its fleet of food trucks; and Code 3 is now offering a patient compartment light powered by Vital Vio, to safely, effectively, and continuously kill germs while illuminating the interior of ambulances.
