Water monitoring specialist Rivertrace is partnering with BIO-UV to provide Rivertrace customers with a powerful solution to disinfect and destroy bacteria and viruses - including Covid-19 - from any surface.

BIO-UV, with almost 20 years’ experience designing and manufacturing ultraviolet light (UV-C) water treatment equipment, has used this knowledge to develop a UV scanner able to sanitise all types of surface to fight the Covid-19 pandemic (see here).

The practical and ergonomic Bio-Scan wand uses UV light at a wavelength of 254 nanometres. The UV-C inactivates micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria, algae, yeasts, moulds, etc.) by penetrating their DNA, thereby disrupting their metabolism until they are completely destroyed. The wand is safe and simple to use by anyone, with no training required and comes in three size options.

The Bio-Scan is certified to AFNOR standard NF T72-281 by two independent laboratories. This means it destroys 99.999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses, including SARS-COV-2 (Covid-19).
