99.99% effective UV-C air disinfection against coronavirus (tested on surrogates: Phi6 and MS2 bacteriophages)
VIROBUSTER® systems use effective UV-C technology, and offer the safest and most efficient alternative to traditional disinfection processes.
But what is UV-C and what can it do?
With a short (ozone-free) wavelength of 254 nanometres, UV-C light is perfectly suited (when used safely, cleanly and at a suitable dose) to microbiological disinfection and purification. Treatment with UV-C blocks the genetic material of micro-organisms such as viruses and bacteria, which prevents them from multiplying. This means that after treatment with UV-C, they are no longer infectious.
UV-C rays eliminate 99.99% of coronavirus1
We have known that UV-C rays destroy germs since 1901. VIROBUSTER® systems use UV-C radiation - in a high-dose, user-safe form - to eliminate 99.99% of SARS-CoV2 in just one cycle (surrogate viruses – enveloped Phi6 & MS2 bacteriophages with a structure, particle size and environmental stability comparable to SARS-CoV-2 – were tested). When the SARS-CoV2 virus surrogates are exposed to short-wave UV-C radiation:
- its RNA is blocked,
- it can no longer multiply (replicate), and
- the risk of infection is therefore reduced.

UV-C is a tried-and-tested solution
UV-C has been known to be effective since 1901. It has been used for water sterilisation without the use of chemical additives, and for medical disinfection. With a combination of smart technology, high safety standards and the right UV-C dose, our floor devices eliminate 99.99% of SARS-CoV2 virus surrogates (Phi6 and MS2) in just one cycle - as proven in multiple scientific studies1.
UV-C is safe and efficient
Our devices work solely on the basis of UV-C. This means there are no filters or hazardous additions such as plasma (ozone) or ionisation, making it an emission-free solution that is safe for users and the environment2.
UV-C has been perfected by VIROBUSTER®
The special arrangement of UV-C lamps in VIROBUSTER® modules create a high number of reflected ‘virtual’ lamps, significantly increasing the intensity of the radiation and ensuring the inactivation of viruses in the shortest time possible. The intensity of this patented design, called UVPE, is a 3-log improvement on the UV-C technologies used to date. This means it is roughly 1,000 times more powerful. We call this the “new generation of disinfection”.
