Vital Vio’s lighting is very different from ultraviolet (UV) light that attacks the DNA structure of a microbe and is very dangerous for human exposure.
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.
Reactive Oxygen Species are produced in excess.
Build-up of Reactive Oxygen species is toxic and causes cellular damage.
The damage caused by the Reactive Oxygen species results in the death of the bacterial cell, rendering it harmless.
Vital Vio Delivers Continuous Protection in Two Powerful Modes.
Ideal when you need to illuminate your space with beautiful white light
Enhanced Antimicrobial Mode
Perfect for downtime or continuous overnight cleaning
Vital Vio’s technology constantly cleans every area of a room, but at different rates based on distance from the light. Laboratory and controlled room experiments show >90% microbe reduction in a treated environment for one day. In an actively used facility, statistically significant reductions can occur in a matter of weeks.
Chances are that your current cleaning solution allows for intervals of high bacteria growth through this type of intermittent cleaning. By installing our light technology, you can continuously inhibit microbial growth and significantly decrease their presence.
Vital Vio has conducted several years of clinical and field research and is committed to constantly researching new applications and new environments. We have conducted microbiology tests in high-risk clinical environments and an expanding range of other settings. Case studies are available on request.
