When the pandemic hit in early 2020, our Los Angeles-based team sprang into action. Seeing that there were no effective indoor air solutions in the marketplace, we decided to do something about it.
Our mission at LUV Systems is to achieve healthier public environments via effective disinfection solutions for indoor air and commonly touched surfaces.
This is our story.
LUV - Our Disinfection Technology
Ultraviolet light has been used to disinfect and kill germs in critical healthcare and infrastructure applications for over 100 years. In response to Covid-19, we quickly assembled a team from MIT, UC Berkeley, Boston University, UT Austin, and Caltech, and designed the halō as our first product incorporating low-wavelength (Low-UVC) technology specifically for indoor air. Selected medical, photonics, and engineering experts have incorporated key performance and safety elements of the halō and all LUV products. Now, LUV Systems will keep you and customers safe at your business, classroom, office, and other public spaces.
the halō is the only product featuring continuous, effective, non-intrusive, and exposure-free disinfection of indoor air while people are present.
Effective. Safe. Affordable.
LUV - Our Journey
LUV Systems has key offices in California, Massachusetts, and Texas. Our team of engineers and scientists has a simple objective:
Make people safer from germs in public places.
When the Covid-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, we commissioned our affiliate, EnviroProcess Consultants, Inc. (EPC) to invent, design, and produce effective, safe, and affordable solutions with novel uses of germicidal low-UVC light. We carefully studied transport and fate mechanisms for respiratory pathogens. We retained Boston University Medical School to characterize the effectiveness of our low-UVC system for killing Covid-19 virus.
As a result, our formulated and proprietary solutions are foremost based in science and engineering. Our unique technology and strategy for transmission risk mitigation in public places is now available for schools, senior care facilities, medical offices and lobbies, retail and commercial shops, offices, gyms and studios, places of worship, and, in the future, transportation vehicles.
For healthy indoor air, EPC and LUV Systems developed the halō, a proactive, state-of-the-art solution to respiratory infections. the halō is the only product to provide short-range (<6 ft) and long-term (>8 hr) of protection from respiratory infection, 40x longer than the CDC's published 15-minute guideline for close contact without mitigation.
Our principal founder and CEO, Anu Sood, is an MIT-trained professional chemical engineer with 30+ years as a recognized expert in air quality characterization, control, and treatment. Anu is recognized by the South Coast Air Quality Management District as a certified control technology consultant and his firm EPC has provided pollution prevention and reduction strategies for over 25 years.
