Shares of Energy Focus are surging after the company announced the launch of its nUVo products, which are virus-targeted UVC air disinfectors. The new product is backed by patent-pending technology, which is designed to trap and destroy 99.9% of airborne pathogens, including COVID-19 and its related variants. The company is launching two separate models of its nUVo product, a travel and tower size.
Management notes it is accepting orders and making shipments for its nUVo Traveler model. The tower model is currently accepting pre-orders and are estimated to begin shipping out sometime in January 2022.
The nUVo products work by utilizing proven disinfecting lighting solutions, powered by UVC-254nm light. This powerful lighting source is capable of breaking the DNA and RNA strands of the pathogen. Not to worry though, the powerful UVC lamps are enclosed within the unit to ensure safety and airflow.
Both the nUVo Traveler and Tower models have been independently tested and validated by Intertek Microbiological Tests, which showed 94.1%-99.9% pathogen removal over the course of half-an-hour use in 100 cubic feet and 1,000 cubic feet, respectively. Traveler model runs on a four-hour rechargeable battery, while the Tower unit is a plug-in unit for larger spaces.
“As people and countries worldwide continue to battle SARS-CoV-2 and its unpredictable mutations and constantly evolving variants, we believe our patent-pending nUVo™ TRAVELER and nUVo™ TOWER provide uniquely powerful, filter-free and chemical-free air disinfection solutions to help create safer spaces—whether at home, in the office or as they travel,” said James Tu, Chairman and CEO of Energy Focus. “Energy Focus has a long history of proven quality, reliability and success in providing healthy lighting for mission critical facilities such as the US Navy, National Institutes of Health and many other leading healthcare, government and educational institutions, and we are honored and excited to leverage our technology and innovation to bring consumers as well as public and private organizations these groundbreaking and timely biosecurity products to make life safer, freer and more enjoyable as the world strives towards the new normal.”
