Lit Thinking is headed to Nashville in March for the AORN Global Surgical Conference & Expo. Stop by our booth 2244 to learn more about the power of human-safe Far-UVC and its applications for the healthcare environment at AORN in Nashville, March 10-12! Enter to win a Stanley Cup at booth 2244 and learn more […]
Exciting time spent in New York City at our inaugural Science Advisory Board meeting with Professors Dr. David Brenner from Columbia University Medical Center – Center for Radiological Research and Dr. Edward Nardell from Harvard Medical School to discuss the future of Far-UV technology. We look forward to the work ahead.
We are happy to announce that Wendy Walling has joined the Lit Thinking team! Wendy brings more than 20 years’ experience in sales, marketing, and business development and a passion for promoting the power and performance of Germicidal Ultraviolet (GUV) technologies especially in #healthcare environments. “I couldn’t be more excited to join Lit Thinking and […]
It was an honor and a privilege to sponsor the First International Congress on Far-UVC Science & Technology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center where we showcased our innovative, state-of-the-art solution to air sanitization. Our proprietary software empowers businesses to effortlessly optimize indoor air quality through data-driven, simple, and safe technology – all backed by […]
US EPA / January 2023 “ASHRAE recommends that homes receive 0.35 air changes per hour but not less than 15 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm) per person as the minimum ventilation rates in residential buildings in order to provide IAQ that is acceptable to human occupants and that minimizes adverse health effects.” Link […]
Chemical Engineering Journal / January, 2023 “The application of ultraviolet (UV) light in the food industry has held great promise for a long time. UVC light (200–280 nm) possesses excellent germicidal properties to inactivate a wide range of microbial pathogens (e.g., bacteria, fungi, yeasts, molds, and viruses).” Link to article.
Photochemistry and Photobiology / January, 2023 “The findings from this study support the long-term safety of long-term chronic exposure to far-UVC radiation, and therefore its potential suitability as a practical anti-microbial approach to reduce airborne viral and bacterial loads in occupied indoor settings.” Link to article.
Nature Scientific Reports / January, 2023 “By varying the lamp irradiance output, the number and positions of the lamps, the far-UVC irradiation can achieve a 3-log reduction for a dining duration of 5 min. Besides, the far-UVC lamp has a low damage risk to diners when achieving an effective inactivation rate.“ Link to article.
American Journal of Infection Control / November, 2022 “The present study clearly showed a bactericidal effect of far-UVC on ESBL-producing E. coli. We believe that irradiation with far-UVC may be potentially effective in preventing infection by ESBL-producing E. coli in health care settings.” Link to article.
Nature Scientific Reports / March, 2022 “For the first time, we show that Far-UVC deployed in a room-sized chamber effectively inactivates aerosolised Staphylococcus aureus. At a room ventilation rate of 3 air-changes-per-hour (ACH), with 5 filtered-sources the steady-state pathogen load was reduced by 98.4% providing an additional 184 equivalent air changes (eACH). “ Link to […]
