Erlanger, KY – AquiSense Technologies, the global leader in UV-C LED disinfection technology, is excited to partner with NS Nanotech on the development of the first solid-state broadband UV research device. The device will be powered by the world’s first UV lamp that is solid-state and emits wavelengths from 200 nm to 400 nm, developed by NS Nanotech. This device is critical for today’s important research into key disinfection wavelengths such as, 220nm (Far UV-C), 254-280nm (UV-C) and 290-400nm (UV-A and -B).
The collaboration between AquiSense Technologies and NS Nanotech will offer researchers reliable, low footprint tools, as part of AquiSense’s PearlLab Beam™ product line; one device to test all wavelengths within the full UV spectrum and another focused on the 220nm, or Far UV region.
“This partnership signifies a shift in how we can research spectral impacts of UV on various mediums and organic material” said Oliver Lawal, AquiSense CEO. “Due to the early stages of Far UV-C, much more research is needed on its effects as a disinfectant, we wanted to provide that research tool so we can more effectively expand into consumer markets if Far UV-C is found to be unequivocally safe. Expect this product to be ready to purchase in the coming year,” concluded Lawal.
“It is great to be working with leaders in the solid-state disinfection industry,” said Victor Hsia, VP of Sales and Business Development at NS Nanotech. “We believe our technology will revolutionize how we disinfect our world and we’re excited to get this technology into the hands of researchers to quantify the safety and effectiveness of this breakthrough,” Hsia concluded.
