Disinfection with Impelux technology from UV SmartLab research proves: UV-Clicht kills Corona virus

Corona virus on objects can be effectively destroyed with UV-C light. This has been established by research agency Eurofins on behalf of UVSmart. It has been known for some time that viruses and bacteria are destroyed by UV-light. It was therefore likely that this would also apply to the corona virus that causes COVID-19. But because it is a new virus, this was obviously not yet specifically demonstrated. That is why this has now been investigated with the UV-C disinfection equipment from MedTech startup UV Smartuit Delft.

Defused indeed

The study was carried out by Eurofins Biolab in Italy, using virus isolated from animals. Corona virus material was exposed under controlled conditions for 25 seconds in the UV-C disinfection device ‘D25’ of UV Smart. After this standard cycle, it turned out that 99.99% of the virus material had indeed been made harmless. ”Scientists and medical professionals were already confident in this, and these robust results support this new validated disinfection method.

Our equipment is already being used at care centers and hospitals to minimize the spread of microorganisms and create a safer care environment, ”says Daan Hoek, one of the founders of UV Smart. He continues:“ These results do not mean that all sources UV light can render the corona virus harmless, such as sunlight or UV lamps in consumer electronics.


This research shows that the powerful light source in our equipment is effective; the patented Impelux technology also does not damage the irradiated material, and no radiation can escape from the UV box, so that is very safe ”. To be able to meet the increased international demand for this equipment – which is now CE certified –UV Smart has recently scaled up production.
