UV-based Air Purification, A New Way To Fight The Flu

CENTERVILLE, Mass., Feb 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: UVFT) (the "Company") announced today there is good news for those living in the 47 states that are reporting widespread flu activity. UVFLU has developed the only pure UV based, FDA-cleared, class 2 medical device for fighting airborne infection and is now offering it to consumers. The Company has spent millions of dollars developing this unit and in the past has sold the unit mostly to hospitals and other medical facilities.

The Company has just launched a Groupon with special pricing during the current flu outbreak, which can be taken advantage of by visiting  We felt Groupon was the perfect Company to help with the consumer launch given their huge marketing and logistics capability. 

The Viratech UV-400 is an FDA Cleared Class II Medical Device for killing over 99% of airborne bacteria, along with a host of other contaminants, including odors, smoke, and toxic chemicals, with every pass, in rooms up to 800 sq. feet. The device is unique in that it uses germicidal ultra violet light to actually kill organic contaminants, versus typical air purifiers which only "trap" contaminants.

This year's flu season is now in full swing and hitting earlier and stronger than anytime in the past decade, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)." Reports of Influenza-like-illness (ILI), are nearing what have been peak levels during moderately severe seasons, according to Dr. Joe Bresee , Chief of Epidemiology and Prevention Branch in CDC's Influenza Division. "While influenza vaccination offers the best protection we have against influenza, it's still possible that some people may become ill despite being vaccinated."

People who are most susceptible to flu complications include young children, people sixty-five and older, pregnant women and those with underlying medical conditions. While everyone should take extra precautions this time of year, these groups are urged to take simple, additional steps to remove or kill contaminated air before they breathe it in. Flu viruses can be transmitted from coughs and sneezes up to 6 feet away, and the average person breathes 3600 gallons of air per day, so indoor air quality is essential.

Germicidal UV light has been found to be one of the most effective methods of killing both airborne and surface contamination, caused by bacteria and viruses. Hospitals routinely use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses on surfaces, and in the air. UV Flu Technology has developed residential, air purifiers that utilize this hospital-grade method. 

"This serious outbreak may only be the beginning of a host of airborne diseases becoming major headlines over the next several years," said Jack Lennon , President of UV Flu Technologies. "Flu, Whooping Cough, TB, MRSA, Staph, and a host of other airborne transmitted diseases are coming back, many of which have grown resistant to treatments using antibiotics. The extensive use of antibiotics over the last few decades have contributed to lower immune response systems in many Americans. Children, seniors, and anyone undergoing transplants, or other medical treatments, which lower the immune response, are at serious risk of getting potentially fatal bacterial infections. The strain of Tuberculosis now appearing in India and Eastern Europe is now infecting millions of people, with fatality rates sometimes exceeding 50%," said Mr. Lennon. "Although, on average, 36,000 people die from flu-like symptoms annually in this country, many times more die from bacterial infections, and up to 500,000 may die from diseases related to cardiopulmonary diseases related to indoor air pollution."
