Lo-UVTM Disinfection Systems
For over 100 years, UV light has been used to disinfect environmental pathogens in hospitals, laboratories, and water treatment facilities. Upon the advent of Covid-19, EP Consultants formulated a proprietary system with low-wavelength UVC lights to disinfect public spaces, including the air people breathe and surfaces that they touch. We quickly assembled a team from MIT, Boston University, and Caltech to determine the unique low wavelength UVC that is most effective at pathogen disinfection while maximizing public safety. Selected medical, photonics, and engineering experts were tapped to incorporate key features to ensure safety and effectiveness for our Lo-UVTM product line. Current efforts include dose and exposure research on common, real-world surfaces and a first-embodiment prototype for indoor air disinfection.
The unique feature of our systems is that they can be used while people are present – without any direct exposure to humans or pets. Our core principle is to develop products that are effective, safe, and affordable for consumers.
EP Consultants has contracted with the Boston University School of Medicine, National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory to specifically study disinfection of Covid-19 on common, real world surfaces with 200-260 nm UVC light. Please contact us here to learn more about our research proposal.
UV DISINFECTION INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
EP Consultants has filed UV disinfection fast-track patent applications for multiple inventions configured to disinfect air and surfaces in public places, and we have already negotiated five office actions with the USPTO.
Lo-UVTM PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
We have developed our first prototype device for UV disinfection of air in public indoor spaces such as retail establishments, offices, restaurants, and classrooms. Testing and demonstration of safety and effectiveness are underway.
