UV222™: The UV Medico Far UV-C lamp

A breakthrough in disinfection

Traditional disinfectant lamps can only be used in empty spaces

Traditional disinfecting UV lamps are very effective against pathogens but they also emit light at harmful wavelengths and can only be used in unoccupied spaces.

The UV lamp UV222™ mainly emits light at a wavelength of 222 nanometers (nm). It deactivates viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and antibiotic-resistant bacteria without causing harm to humans.

This means that UV222™ can be used in both unoccupied and occupied spaces, highly increasing its effectiveness and usability against the spreading of infectious diseases.



This is a significant breakthrough and will lead to a safer and healthier world.


UV222™ is a solution for everyday life

UV222™ is effective in all indoor and outdoor environments where people gather.

UV222™ is very effective in high-traffic and high-touch areas

UV222™ is particularly effective when applied to so-called contact points where it disinfects viruses in the air and on surfaces.

Contact points are high-traffic or high-touch areas in an indoor or outdoor environment, such as:

Serving areas

Meeting rooms

Printing stations

Shared kitchen facilities

Essentially, any tabletop or surface exposed to a large number of people is a contact point.

Contact points drive the spread of infectious diseases such as SARS-CoV-2. UV222™ deactivates up to 99.9 percent of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in contact points. This significantly reduces the spread of infectious diseases.

Effective, safe, and affordable disinfection

Effectiveness and safety are the two most important benefits of UV222™

But there are some additional key benefits that you should know about:


Protection against diseases from viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria, and other pathogens. By emitting Far UV-C, UV222™ deactivates up to 99.9 percent of pathogens both in the air and on surfaces within just a few minutes.


UV222™ emits non-harmful doses of Far UV-C light at a wavelength of 222 nm. The lamp is fitted with a unique and patented safety filter technology to completely avoid any harmful wavelengths. As a result, you can also use the lamp to disinfect occupied spaces, which represents a major breakthrough in disinfection lamps available at affordable prices.


Small, compact, and low-maintenance Far UV-C lamp for €1,995 per lamp (ex. installation) with safety filter technology, and a lifetime of 5,000+ hours included in the price.

We take care of the installation to make sure everything works

UV222™ is easy to implement in most environments such as bars, restaurants, doctors' waiting rooms, and other places with high levels of human activity.

  • To make sure that the lamp functions properly and that it does not exceed recommended doses of UV radiation, the installation has to be carried out by a UV Medico-authorised installer.

  • UV222™ can be placed in common electricity fixtures, has low power consumption, and doesn’t get hot. All of this results in a disinfection solution that can be implemented quickly, allowing people and businesses to go about life with fewer concerns over infectious diseases.

UV222™ is compliant with local, European, and global exposure guidelines

UV222™ operates in compliance with all the relevant directives and regulations regarding exposure to artificial optical radiation. With our unique and patented safety filter technology, we offer the safest Far UV-C lamp in the market.

  • EU compliance: UV222™ operates in compliance with the EU directive on health and safety requirements regarding exposure to artificial optical radiation. 

  • Local authorities: UV222™ operates in compliance with regulations from local European authorities regarding exposure to artificial optical radiation.

  • Global exposure guidelines: UV222™ operates within the exposure limit recommended by the non-profit International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). 

  • Peer-reviewed: All underlying research in regards to UV222™ and the safety filter technology has been verified in numerous independent peer-reviewed studies.

Here is the technology behind UV222™


UV light has been used for over a century to disinfect environments by removing viruses and bacteria. However, most UV light is also harmful to human tissue. This means that people, fx doctors and nurses, cannot be present in the room when the light is on. However, this has all changed with UV222™.
