The sustainable low-temperature ozone sterilization solution

scroll

Eco-friendly

Waste- and chemical-free process relying on limited energy resources. Ozone does not leave toxic fumes or residues; rather it converts back to oxygen that can be safely released into the environment.

Safe

Parameters are monitored to guarantee process efficiency and effective destruction of all microorganisms (bacteria, yeast, fungi, viruses and spores). The durable container allows extended sterile storage.

Cost-Effective

The low-maintenance process relies on the use of UV radiation to generate ozone from ambient air. Designed to operate with minimized costs per cycle, devices’ lifetime is preserved by a gentle process.

A proprietary patented process

The process relies on the use of 172 nm V-UV lamps to transform oxygen from ambient air into ozone (O3), a naturally occurring biocide gas also known as trioxygen. Ozone further reacts with water molecules (H2O) to form hydroxyl radicals which are highly reactive species responsible for the inactivation of all microorganisms.

At the end of the sterilization process, a 254 nm V-UV lamp transforms the remaining ozone back into oxygen.
The process is compliant with applicable norms relative to the microbial effectiveness of the sterilization process.
