New UV Tunnel Tests Show Significant Pathogen Reduction


Independent testing of VIGILAIR Systems(TM)' new UVGI packaging disinfection tunnel demonstrates a 7 log inactivation of key microorganisms. 7 log inactivation was achieved on the following pathogens:

Enterobacter sakazakii

Enterobacter cloacae

Salmonella typhimurium

Listeria monocytogenes

The above microorganisms were used because they are particularly problematic for Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical manufacturers. VIGILAIR(TM)® tunnels combine Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation
(UVGI), ionization, reflective materials and advanced control electronics to provide a predictable
inactivation rate on target organisms.

Testing and validation was performed in collaboration with ZeptoMetrix Corporation, an ISO
9001:2000 and 13485:2003 certified company. In addition, Zeptometrix holds a Select Agent
Permit issued by the USDA and the CDC.

VIGILAIR(TM)® UVGI disinfection tunnels are integrated into new or existing packaging conveyor lines
and are validated in the field. Many VIGILAIR(TM)® UVGI Tunnels are used to disinfect packaging
such as cans and can ends. Other VIGILAIR(TM)® applications sanitize the air used in processing.

VIGILAIR Systems is the industry leader in the use of evidence based for UV surface and air
disinfection. Based in New York State, VIGILAIR(TM)® major market segments are Nutraceutical
Manufacturing, Healthcare and Bio-Defense. VIGILAIR(TM)® serves clients in Asia, Canada, Mexico
and the United States.
