RayVio Corp. Announces Study Results from Efficacy Testing of its Deep Ultraviolet (UV) LED Solution for Disinfection

RayVio Corp. announced study results from efficacy testing of its deep ultraviolet (UV) LED solution for disinfection. The study shows that the company's deep UV LEDs can eliminate bacteria found in hospitals and homes more quickly and to a higher degree than today's most common disinfection products, aiding in the fight against hospital acquired infections (HAI). A single RayVio UV LED killed 99.9999% of the bacteria samples of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), listeria and salmonella within 60 seconds. Even faster results or larger scale applications are enabled by using multiple LEDs. Researchers irradiated samples of bacteria with the company's deep UV LED emission wavelength of 285 nanometers at a 10 millimeter distance. They measured the change in bacteria population after time intervals between 5, and 80 seconds. 99.99% bacteria were killed in 5 seconds and 99.9999% killed within 60 seconds. The study was conducted at AEMTEK, a third party laboratory accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), which is recognized by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

RayVio Corp. Launches New Series of Ultraviolet (UV) LEDs

RayVio Corp. announced that it has launched a new series of ultraviolet (UV) LEDs with the highest power output available from a small surface mount device (SMD) footprint. RayVio’s technology enables the UV disinfection of water and environments by fostering a new generation of powerful and portable health and hygiene devices. RayVio’s new series of UV LEDs are among the smallest commercially available at a width of 6.5 millimeters, enabling unparalleled flexibility to incorporate into a range of products from self-disinfecting water bottles to hospital surface cleaners. The technology provides up to 40 milliwatts at 100 milliamperes continuous current operation in a single package, the most power available in that size on the market. With its wavelength in the range of 280 to 290 nanometers and its high power density, RayVio’s LEDs deactivate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, thereby preventing disease. UV light is widely used to protect against germs in water, surfaces and air, and can also aid in treating skin diseases including psoriasis, eczema, rickets and jaundice. However, traditional UV light sources are bulky, fragile and contain toxic mercury. RayVio’s UV LEDs are portable and compact and can be used safely across a range of applications, from cleaning water tanks in home humidifiers to disinfecting water at the faucet. RayVio is working with partners across the globe to incorporate its line of UV LEDs into a new generation of products and applications.

RayVio Expands its UV LED Manufacturing Capacity and Global Sales Force

RayVio Corporation announced that they are expanding their international sales force, and manufacturing capacity to support increased customer demands. The facility expansion at the original site is scheduled to be complete by year-end. RayVio's current Silicon Valley headquarters houses their wafer growth, chip fabrication, packaging and test R&D and proto-typing capability. The expansion of this facility will enable RayVio to reduce cycle time and produce in excess of two million LED units annually through the installation of additional manufacturing and test equipment.
