99.9% of viruses inactivation

Non-harmful Far-UVC lamp

Inactivation of up to 99.9 percent of viruses including SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens in a few minutes without harming human skin or eyes.


First non-harmful Far-UVC light

The Far-UVC lamp UV222 from UV Medico is the first non-harmful UV lamp

UV222 emits a type of UVC light that, when applied in the correct doses and combination with the patented safety filter technology, is harmless to humans.

No penetration of human skin

  • Numerous independent research projects have demonstrated that Far-UVC light at 222 nm, when emitted in the correct doses, can inactivate pathogens while unable to penetrate the outer layer of mammalian skin or the outer tear layer of the eye.

No harmful doses

  • UV222 emits Far-UVC light at a wavelength of 222 nm in harmless doses. The lamp complies with local, European, and global guidelines.


How the filter works

Its unique safety filter technology, Care222® from Ushio, makes UV222 safer than any other disinfection lamp on the market.

The safety filter technology in the lamp from UV Medico is a thin filter that only lets through light at around 222 nm and blocks all other unwanted radiation.

It works much in the same way as sunglasses with UV protection, blocking the UV radiation from passing through and entering the environment, eliminating dangerous longer wavelengths and making the light from the lamp safe.


The end of side-emissions

Far-UVC light at 222 nanometres (nm) wavelength is a perfect tool for air and surface disinfection. However, side-emissions remained a concern until recently.

UV222 lamps address the safety concerns of traditional Far-UVC lamps by incorporating patented technology to block harmful secondary emissions.

This innovation ensures the lamps are safe for human presence while maintaining their disinfecting efficacy, making UV222 a significant advancement in the sterilization industry
