Molex and Nextsense develop UV-free antimicrobial LED lighting

Molex and Nextsense develop UV-free antimicrobial LED lighting Nextsense’s  Biovitae technology and Molex CoreSync smart building platform has resulted in a UV-free antimicrobial LED lighting technology. 

Integrating disparate building functions with standard building management systems, Molex’s CoreSync platform powers and controls low-voltage devices and lighting.  

 Powered by amBX SmartCore technology, the addition of Biovitae’s UV free, antimicrobial LED lighting technology creates a revolutionary solution for Molex that helps meet the need for a safe return to public spaces and workplaces.

The white light emitted not only provides excellent illumination, but also sanitises surfaces and the environment from all existing bacteria and viruses; this is particularly pertinent in light of the recent coronavirus pandemic.  

 Tests carried out by the Scientific Department of the Celio Military Polyclinic in Rome, and the military laboratories of Germany and Sweden, suggest that the multi-frequency peak of Biovitae killed 99.8% of SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19). This exciting innovation and partnership allow spaces to be sanitised without putting anyone at risk. 

 In recent times, it has been discovered that the visible light spectrum at 405 nm and the broader lengths in the 400-420 nm region have the ability to kill a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria and viruses.
