Our Partnership

Vyv has partnered with SaveMoneyCutCarbon to deliver this critical continuous use antimicrobial light solution to the UK. Click to view the video opposite to learn more about this pioneering technology.

Vyv is a new class of clean light technology that harnesses the antimicrobial power within the visible light spectrum. Vyv stops the growth and kills* viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold and mildew.

Unlike UV light, Vyv is certified for continuous and unrestricted use around people, pets and plants. Vyv lights are built to continuously reduce microbial growth to keep our indoor environments and surfaces clean.

Vyv Antimicrobial Products

Vyv’s antimicrobial light technology is now available in a wide assortment of dual-mode White Antimicrobial+Light and Enhanced Antimicrobial light fixtures

White Antimicrobial Light Mode (WALM) Enhanced Antimicrobial Light Mode (EALM)

What impact are these germs having?

Hospitals / Healthcare

It is estimated that 300,000 patients a year in England acquire a healthcare-associated infection as a result of care within the NHS

Offices / Workplaces

Sick staff cost British firms £77 billion annually in lost productivity

Public Transportation

Following the first lockdown in the UK, bus use was down 87% on normal levels, and passenger numbers on national rail remain down by 95% with the tube in London down by 93%

Schools / Daycare

Illness accounts for 58% of all pupil absences in the UK (Dfe). Absence due to illness increased by 22% from the 2018 Autumn term to 2019 Autumn term

Food Industry

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has estimated that around 2.4 million cases of foodborne illness, caused by bacteria occur every year in the UK

Entertainment Venues

Music Venue Trust finds that only 36% of British public feel confident in safety of returning to live gigs during the Covid-19 crisis

Vyv has created a new class of Continuous Cleaning

Organisms can live on surfaces, sometimes in excess of a month. They’re invisible, grow exponentially and can frequently impact our health.

Current cleaning methods – typically intermittent mopping and wiping surfaces with antimicrobial cleaning agents – are generally inefficient and rarely remove 100% of microbes on surfaces. The gaps between cleanings are all opportunities for microbial growth.

More sophisticated, disinfection techniques are also available: bursts of ultraviolet (UV-C and Far UV- C) light, high pressure-high heat washdowns, vapor-bombing with hydrogen peroxide and more. What these approaches all have in common – they are initially effective but only for an intermittent time. None work continuously.

Continuous Protection

Vyv’s pioneering continuous antimicrobial light technology creates a new kind of clean

Microbial levels can quickly return to pre-cleaning levels between treatments

With Vyv’s continuous antimicrobial effect microbes are prevented from growing and are constantly being reduced over time

Benefits of Vyv

Unrestricted Use

For constant and unrestricted use around people, animals, and plants. No dangerous UV rays!

Multitasking

Replaces ambient and task lighting whilst disinfecting and protecting simultaneously

Tested

Independently tested and verified by leading health institutions, universities and hospitals

Continuous

Provides continuous cleaning and prevents the growth of Bacteria, Mould, Fungi and Yeast

Supplementary

Inhibits the intermittent build up of microbial growth in between traditional cleaning schedules

The benefits of Vyv technology compared to traditional methods of disinfection:

Vyv technology is not Ultraviolet light

Vyv technology harnesses a specific wavelength of light (405nm) which sits outside of the harmful UV spectrum and within the visible light spectrum.

The Science

Visible antimicrobial light excites porphyrin molecules exclusively in microorganisms, creating excessively toxic Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)

Vyv’s patented antimicrobial light technology delivers a precise spectrum of visible light (400nm – 420nm) that initiates a photo-activation of porphyrin molecules found exclusively inside microbes (not humans, pets or plants). This photo-activation leads to the production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). In high doses, ROS cause irreparable damage to the cellular structure, which leads to bacterial cell death.

Results of Vyv

Studies performed on the efficacy of Vyv’s technology include research performed at the NY State Department of Health Wadsworth Biodefense Lab, University of North Carolina, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Cornell Food Sciences, Mount Sinai Medical Center, Case Western University, Stonybrook University Hospital, and Bayfront Health System with several more clinical and customer trials currently in progress.

*Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 99.985% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 6 hours on hard surfaces. MRSA and E. coli showed 90%+ reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces. Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the space where the product is installed and the length of time of exposure. Use of Vyv antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning.
