Infection Control for Safe Environments
SteriLumen was founded in 2016 to provide novel, easy to deploy and effective devices to protect vulnerable populations from dangerous infections.
Our engineers create patented products that manage infection control for safe environments. We employ proven germicidal UVC in a variety of automated and connected designs, rising to meet the disinfection challenges in our most important industries.
Our guiding principle is to create safe environments without emission of ozone or other chemicals, and provide the modern convenience of connected, remote asset management capabilities that enable Data Driven Disinfection™.
In February 2021 we acquired Akida LLC, makers of the Airocide™ product line which was developed with NASA to address air-borne pathogens and bring market-leading air purification technology to the fight against coronavirus. Together, our advanced designs and infection control for safe environment technologies significantly lower the risk of infection, controlling outbreaks and allowing businesses to get back to what they do best. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Applied UV Inc. (NASDAQ:AUVI).
