Applied UV, Inc. (NASDAQ: AUVI) has announced that its distribution partner in Thailand will install Airocide units at the Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical sciences, Bangkok, Thailand to create safer and cleaner environments for visitors and staff. AFRIMS is a biomedical research facility of the U.S. Army’s Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. AFRIMS has a mission that has resulted in ground breaking research in military medicine across nations in Southeast Asia and Indian Subcontinent that ias focused on diseases related to infectious pathogens.
“The installation of our Airocide� units at such a prestigious biomedical facility represents another significant milestone in our strategy to significantly grow our international commercial distribution capabilities and enter new markets. Our Thailand distributor, Sithiporn Associates, is one of the leading scientific equipment distributors in Thailand and ASEAN region and have been excellent partners to commercialize our innovative and clinically proven portfolio of pathogen eliminating technology. Hospitals and research facilities are increasingly recognizing the benefits of installing Airocide� systems in communal spaces to interrupt the transmission of airborne infectious agents and destroy those microbes rapidly while keeping the occupants safe from any harmful byproducts.”Max Munn, Founder and President of Applied UV
Airocide uses optimized photocatalytic oxidation technology where air and any contaminants are drawn from the room into the Airocide unit and channeled into the reaction chamber. UVC activates the photocatalyst embedded in the reaction chamber and begins the photocatalytic process. Within the reaction chamber, hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions are generated and oxidize every organic molecule that comes within contact. The reaction bed allows surface-bound radicals nearly 360 degrees of exposure to collide with pathogens and other organic material.
