Toyoda Gosei launches UV-C high-speed surface disinfector
Toyoda Gosei Co Ltd of Kiyosu, Aichi Prefecture, Japan says that in November it will launch a ‘UV-C High-Speed Surface Disinfector’, which uses deep ultraviolet (UV-C) LEDs that effectively kill viruses and bacteria. Pre-orders of the product are being accepted from 1 September.
Toyoda Gosei says that, with the recent rise in awareness of infection prevention, it is launching various products that disinfect air and surfaces using UV-C LEDs. The UV-C High-Speed Surface Disinfector is reckoned to eliminate more than 99.9% of viruses and bacteria on both top and bottom surfaces of smart phones and other devices in 7 seconds. The disinfector employs a special optical mechanism to concentrate the irradiating UV-C. It can be used in restaurants, hotels, offices, hospitals and various other places to disinfect small personal items upon entry and during personal interactions to improve the hygienic environment, the firm says.
