OSRAM Sylvania and LUV Systems, Inc. Sign Low-UVC Lighting OEM Agreement
WILMINGTON, MA (29 September 2020) - Today, OSRAM Sylvania Inc., division of OSRAM Licht AG (FWB: OSR), and LUV SYSTEMS, INC. established an OEM agreement for OSRAM to supply low-wavelength ultraviolet (UVC) lamps and electronics for the LUV Systems LUV™ (“low-UVC”) disinfection product line.
According to Neeraj Chaudhary, Business Analyst at LUV Systems, this agreement will allow “acceleration of our production cycle to get air and surface disinfection products to the marketplace in this most critical time, particularly considering the extremely tight supply of quartz glass and UVC light bulbs.”
As Chaudhary has stated earlier, the LUV Systems LUV™ line offers “affordable consumer and commercial products to accelerate the safe reopening of economies, while providing necessary peace of mind as people return to a state of normal in homes, offices, schools, retail and entertainment establishments, and transportation systems.”
The OEM agreement fits well within the product roll-out cycle for LUV Systems, which started with patent applications, lab research on real-world surfaces and UVC inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) virions, and is now proceeding with a demonstration prototype.
In addition, EP Consultants (parent company of LUV Systems) has established NDA agreements with rapid manufacturing and distribution partners, such as NeoTECH as we explore long-term partnerships. For indoor air disinfection, LUV Systems has developed a proprietary dose algorithm has been developed to correlate viral inactivation surface results to indoor air disinfection dose rates.
Ultraviolet disinfection technology has been used for over 100 years in many applications including hospitals, laboratories, and water treatment facilities. LUV Systems products are designed with a 100x safety margin for acceptable exposures as established by FCC for devices such as cell phones.
LUV Systems LUV™ product line includes personal and installed devices to disinfect surfaces and air while people are present and conducting their normal activities, without direct human exposure. LUV™ air disinfection products are designed to clear indoor spaces in less than five minutes, which is 3X faster than the CDC’s published 15-minute guideline for indoor air.
LUV Systems products currently incorporate engineering controls such as motion sensors to automatically control and monitor device operation. Future product releases are planned with body temperature, tilt, and distance sensors, plus algorithms including a mobile app.
LUV Systems inventions are designed in America and Sood states “the products can easily be 100% manufactured in the United States. We continue to seek business and governmental partners to continue research and development, secure international patents, and establish a manufacturing and distribution pipeline.”
