One Far-UV Sterilray™ lamp in a room gives the same level of protection as everyone in the room wearing N95 masks!
“The model shows that disinfection rates are increased by a further 50-85% when using Far-UV (aka Far-UVC) within currently recommended exposure levels compared to the room’s ventilation alone. With these magnitudes of reduction, Far-UV lighting could be employed to mitigate SARS-CoV-2 transmission before the onset of future waves, or the start of winter when risks of infection are higher. This is particularly significant in poorly-ventilated spaces where other means of reduction are not practical, in addition social distancing can be reduced without increasing the risk.”
Secondly, in all scenarios described, Far-UV will reduce in-room SARS-CoV-2 concentrations to levels comparable to that provided practically by breathing through an N95 mask. Finally, unlike face masks, Far-UV is a passive control from the perspective of the individual. Due to it having a similar efficiency to an N95 mask, it could replace them in some situations, reducing the demand for PPE supplies, and lessening the damage that PPE disposal is causing to the environment.”

Far-UV Sterilray™ has been harnessing the power of excimer lamps for over 15 years. We filed patents for the methods and use of 222nm in 2005. We have been manufacturing our 222nm lamps in New Hampshire since 2008. Our expertly crafted excimer lamps emit 222nm wavelengths to destroy pathogens quickly and efficiently, so you can focus on your business instead of overly complicated sanitation solutions. Far-UV Sterilray is the only manufacturer in the world that has a 30,000 hour warranty on our lamps. All other lamps last only 3,000 hours.
Far-UV Sterilray is safe and effective technology for indoor public spaces where people gather—from hospitals, schools, airports, and public transportation to all forms of entertainment venues—that can effectively reduce pathogens.
Far-UV Sterilray™ is a shorter wavelength than UVC (254nm) with much higher photon energy that breaks the molecular bonds of all organisms.
All viruses, bacteria, and spores are made up of these bonds.
Far-UV Sterilray™ lamps are unmatched in power and efficacy.
Far-UV Sterilray ™ Lamp life is measured in years rather than months.
