Germicidal LEDs On A Mission: Inactivating Viruses

Groundbreaking Technology Helps Protect Frontline Healthcare Workers
 
Bedford, NH - As COVID-19 continues wreaking havoc on our health, public safety and the economy, Livermore, CA based Bolb, Inc. is taking on a leadership role in response to this challenge with its virus inactivating Germicidal LED (GLED) technology. Implementations protecting frontline healthcare workers from cross contamination and self-infection, as well as creating UV shield delineated safe zones, are underway.  GLED solutions can provide fast and timely decontamination of the inside of transportation vehicles such as ambulances, buses, and subways, along with vigilant disinfection of medical and dental clinics, manufacturing floors, and retail spaces. Enabling the commencement of commerce is a vital overarching objective, not only in the U.S., but globally.  
 
The virus inactivation efficacy of UVC light emitting GLED technology is certified by the L2 Lab and wellrespected Guangzhou Institute of Microbiology. GLEDs achieved a 99.99% reduction within 2 seconds, with proven effectiveness in deployed solutions at Huoshenan (Fire God Mountain) Hospital in Wuhan, China, during the height of their epidemic. The Chinese public is utilizing this technology to protect themselves, allowing business re-open to operate, setting an example to U.S. and other countries aspiring to kick start their economies.  
 
The company’s flagship products provide rapid disinfection in critical markets such as HAI prevention in hospitals, point of use water treatment and food safety. These devices offer a compact, yet powerful emitter capable of delivering proven and dramatic results with worldwide impact in disinfection and pathogen destruction. Originally intended for inactivating the superbug MRSA in hospitals, the full solution, BLAZAR™ has been re-tasked in assisting with combatting COVID-19, on the frontlines, in addition to providing vector intercepting vigilance in virus transmission.  
 
Bolb Inc and its channel partner, Laser Components, are committed to serving companies, industries and our communities to help arrest COVID-19, ensuring the safety and well-being of all.
