Far-UV Sterilray Sues
Healthe, Inc. and Far UV Technologies, Inc.
May 19, 2021 (Somersworth, New Hampshire)– Far-UV SterilrayTM, the developer and holder of patents for methods and uses of 222 nm disinfection technologies today announce that it has countersued Healthe Inc. for patent infringement in the United States District Court Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division, and sued Far UV Technologies for patent infringement and other torts on May 17, 2021 in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri.
Both lawsuits allege infringement of U.S. Patent Number 8,975,605, titled “Method and apparatus for producing a high level of disinfection in air and surfaces,” and U.S. Patent Number 9,700,642, titled “Method and apparatus for producing a high level of disinfection in air and surfaces.” These patents are exclusively licensed to Far-UV Sterilray for methods and uses of the 222 nm wavelength for the purposes of air, surface, and liquid disinfection.
Far-UV Sterilray alleges that the Healthe Space™, Healthe Entry™, and Healthe Wand Pro™ products infringe the ‘605 and ‘642 patents. Far-UV Sterilray also alleges that Far UV’s family of Krypton-branded products infringe the same two patents. A copy of these filings can be found on Far-UV Sterilray’s web site: www.sterilray.com.
Far-UV Sterilray and S. Edward Neister are market leaders in the development of 222 nm technology beginning in the 1990’s. Neister’s work included inventions of methods, processes, and devices for the use of the 222 nm wavelength for purposes of air, surface, and liquid disinfection. Neister also has other patent applications pending for uses of the 222 nm wavelength including for the disinfection of human skin and eyes.
Michael Olsen, Chief Marketing Officer at Far-UV Sterilray, states “Healthe and Far UV Technologies have both willfully and maliciously disregarded the hard work and years of development efforts in securing the IP rights to the use of 222 nm for purposes of air, surface, and liquid disinfection. We will continue to vigorously defend our patents.”
