Partnership Targets Healthcare UV Disinfection Market
A novel LED UV disinfection technology will become more widely available in healthcare facilities across Europe, the Middle East and ANZ under a partnership between Mackwell Group and Daintree company, GE Current.
The partnership involving Mackwell Group subsidiary, Mackwell Health, will offer GE Current's 365DisInFx™ UV technology which leverages LEDs to reduce the potential spread of common infection-causing pathogens even in occupied spaces, alongside Mackwell branded UV respirators and UVC disinfection chambers.
Mackwell Health is also expected to leverage its expertise in the application of European regulatory standards for UV germicidal systems to facilitate entry of the 365DisInFx™ UV technology into new local markets.
Mackwell Group CEO, Nick Brangwin, says: "We are delighted to announce this partnership with GE Current.
"It was clear as soon as we began discussions that our two companies share a common philosophy, which is to exploit the vast potential of UV technology, but in a responsible way, backed by science and with a comprehensive body of evidence. Our partnership will allow many more people across the world to be kept much safer from infectious disease."
Manish Bhandari, CEO of GE Current, adds: "We are excited to align with Mackwell Health to bring 365DisInFx™ technology to more customers across the globe. We continue to invest in technology and innovation and enable more partners to deliver products that are solving real world challenges."
According to the companies, testing of 365DisInFx™ against SARS-CoV-2 has demonstrated 90 per cent inactivation of the aerosolised virus within a period of two hours.
