The UV Box - Mobile Device Disinfection: Because Hand Hygiene Doesn't Stop with Your Hands Anymore
Rely on AUVS' patented UV Disinfection Chambers: Wherever disinfection is a priority... Whenever cross-contamination is a concern.
The KR615 Germicidal Enclosure--The UV Box--delivers up to 99.995% disinfection of MRSA
and C. diff - and up to 99.999% disinfection
of Norovirus as well as more than 250x the energy needed to disinfect Coronavirus!
...all in just 55-Seconds
Our patented technology is currently used in the air-handling systems at the US Pentagon to protect against bio-terrorism!
What is Photon Trap Technology?
AUVS' Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Wayne Clark developed the Photon Trap Technology with UV light for the Department of Defense to kill Anthrax spores in moving air. This same technology is used in The UV Box. Working off the principle that a photon can never be at rest, the Photon Trap uses highly reflective mirrors causing the photon to bounce back-and-forth many times before escaping or being absorbed.
This process of essentially trapping the photon for about nanosecond dramatically increases the UV irradiance and the associated germicidal effect.
- Cell phones have been proven 10 times more contaminated than public restroom toilet seats!
- Number of times we handle our cell phones per day: More than 2,600.
- Number of times the average user disinfects their phone: 0.
- Nearly every US hospital has a Hand Hygiene program to reduce Hospital Associated Infections.
- Effective disinfection of phones - which are handled 2,617 times a day - has essentially gone unaddressed in healthcare.
Can the UV-C used in The UV Box Damage expensive electronic equipment?
The short answer: "No". The electronics in phones and electronic devices are located inside metal, glass and plastic enclosures. The UV-C does not penetrate these enclosures. If the UV could reach the electronic circuits, the photon energy of 254 nm is too low to damage semiconductors, printed circuits, etc.
With 30 year's experience developing intense UV sources, AUVS Chief Technology Officer Dr. Wayne Clark is one the nation's leading experts on
UV energy for antimicrobial applications.
Dr. Clark and his team of electrical engineering, plasma physics and nuclear engineering PhDs developed The UV Box specifically to address the spread of hospital associated infections in healthcare.
The wavelengths in certain parts of the UV spectrum are such that they can efficiently break apart molecular bonds in strands of nucleic acid (DNA) in microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Once these bonds are broken, the microorganisms cease to survive and function.
For Food Processing Facilities, Cafeterias and Restaurants, contamination-related closings can cost thousands to millions of dollars in revenue, lost time, decreased productivity and reputation damage.
Traditional methods of disinfecting handheld items including knives, kitchen implements, cell phones and tablets are not enough.

Traditional methods of disinfecting handcuffs have been blamed for fouling and damaging locks resulting in cuffs having to be cut off of prisoners.
This complaint had been confirmed from New York to Dublin.
The UV Box does not damage any item that it disinfects.
