The far-UVC lamp UV222 from UV Medico is the first non-harmful UV lamp

UV222 emits a type of UVC light that - when applied in the correct doses and in combination with our patented safety filter technology - is harmless to humans.

Authorised installation

UV222 is mounted and installed in your facility by a UV Medico-authorised installer. Once installed and ready for use, the UV Medico Far-UVC Lamp is programmed to emit non-harmful doses only. Rest assured that it is impossible for you to accidentally reconfigure the lamp to emit harmful doses of UVC light.

No penetration of human skin

Numerous independent research projects have demonstrated that far-UVC light at 222 nm - when emitted in the correct doses - can deactivate pathogens while remaining unable to penetrate the outer layer of mammalian skin or the outer tear layer of the eye.

The UV Medico patented safety filter technology is a breakthrough for disinfection

Far-UVC light of a 222 nm wavelength is an almost perfect tool for disinfection. However, until recently one significant safety concern remained.

The disinfecting potential of far-UVC light has been recognized for years, but researchers and companies in the sterilisation industry have continued to struggle with one particular safety concern: Even when a far-UVC lamp is designed to emit far-UVC light of 222 nanometers only, the nature of UVC light is that the lamp will inevitably emit small amounts of secondary emissions in other wavelengths as well.

These secondary emissions in other wavelengths than 222 nm create a problem. They can potentially be harmful to human tissue and eyes.

With UV Medico's groundbreaking patented safety filter technology, we are now able to eliminate that safety concern. For this reason, the patented safety filter technology of UV222 represents a major breakthrough in the market.

How does the safety filter technology work?

The unique safety filter technology completely eliminates dangerous longer wavelengths and makes UV222 safer than any other disinfection lamp on the market.

The safety filter technology works much in the same way as sunglasses with UV protection. It blocks the UV radiation from passing through and entering the environment, making the light from the lamp safe.

The safety filter technology has been verified in numerous independent peer studies.

UV222 from UV Medico prevents infectious diseases from spreading

With just a single unit of UV222, you can deactivate up to 99.9 percent of pathogens in a radius of several meters. The procedure is completed in just a few minutes.

  • Deactivation means that up to 99.9 percent of pathogens - such as viruses like SARS-CoV-2 - can no longer infect and cause disease.
  • As a result, you can reduce the spread of infectious diseases by up to 99.9 percent in occupied rooms such as residential and office buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, serving areas, etc.

UV222 is, therefore, a key component in preventing infectious disease from affecting individuals, organisations, and companies and disrupting society as a whole.

All of this is achieved with:

  • No risk of damage to human tissue
  • No risk of damage to human eyes
  • No risk of dangerous wavelengths because of the patented safety filter technology of the UV Medico Far-UVC Lamp
  • No risk of harmful far-UVC light doses - the lamp is configured by a UV Medico-authorised installer

The effect of UVC light on humans has been studied for more than a century

The study of UVC light, and how UVC light affects humans and pathogens, has been a focal point of scientific research for decades.

  • For example, in 1903, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for his use of UV against lupus, vulgaris, and tuberculosis of the skin.
  • The EU, national authorities, and global organizations base their directives, regulations, and guidelines on vast and thorough scientific research. The effect of artificial optical radiation on human beings is an extremely well-documented subject.

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

The lamp 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-UVC 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 organization the 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 the lamp and the safety filter technology has been verified in numerous independent peer studies.

A deeper dive into 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. At the same time, traditional disinfection lamps known as excimer lamps are big bulky instruments only fit for a lab. However, this has all changed with UV222.

The far-UVC lamp consists of a tube filled with a gas called krypton chloride. This gas has the unique property of emitting UVC-light at 222 nm when a discharge is applied to it. When the lamp is turned on, electricity creates a discharge that excites the gas and after a short period of time, UVC light at 222 nm is emitted.

A far-UVC lamp without a filter emits light in a narrow band around a 222 nm peak, but also releases secondary emissions around 235 nm and 250 nm. These extra wavelengths are known as side-bands or side-emissions. These wavelengths are harmful to humans, but the unique and patented safety filter technology blocks them before they are emitted into the surrounding environment.

The safety filter technology in the lamp from UV Medico is a thin filter that only lets light at around 222 nm through and blocks all other unwanted radiation. It works much in the same way as sunglasses with UV protection. It blocks the UV radiation from passing through and entering the environment, making the light from UV222 safe.

UVC light at 222 nm is highly effective against viruses such as the SARS-CoV-2 because the proteins making up the virus - and viruses in general - have an absorption spectrum with a peak around 220-230 nm. This means that viruses heavily absorb light at the 222 nm wavelength. When light enters the virus, the light is transformed into heat that deactivates the virus, including its capacity to infect and spread disease.

What’s even more interesting is that the UV light at 222 nm is not harmful to humans. The reason is that the top layer of the human skin is made of dead cells. These dead cells are mostly made of proteins. The same can be said for the top layer of the eye. These proteins absorb the light at 222 nm before it can penetrate the top layer and cause damage to the living tissue underneath.

All of this technology is gathered in a small, compact, and low-maintenance far-UVC lamp with a lifetime of 5,000+ hours. When turned on in intervals, the lifetime of 5,000+ hours is extended and the lamp can be in use for years. That is why UV222 is both the most effective, the most affordable, and the safest far-UVC lamp on the market.
