Reinventing disinfection to safely and continuously kill germs, mold, and fungi with the flip of a light switch through advanced LED technology.

Hospital-acquired infections are the number one patient killer in the U.S. According to the CDC, 1 in 25 patients contract infections from hospital stays. This burden is expensive, costing the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $30 billion a year. These diseases are dangerous and are becoming increasingly resistant. Vital Vio, founded in 2013, is a technology company that has embraced and patented new methods to apply the germ-killing power of 405nm (non-UV) light. The company's groundbreaking technology can be applied to achieve a new kind of surface decontamination with the flip of a light switch. The company has surrounded this technology with the expertise required to ensure the efficacy of this new class of continuous light disinfection. Used in combination with traditional intermittent cleaning in hospitals, homes, public spaces, and workplaces, Vital Vio's technology multi-tasks to safely, effectively, and continuously kill bacteria and other harmful organisms, while also illuminating the room. Experience has shown that it is simply not enough to shine 405nm light to kill germs. Literally every application requires a level of scientific understanding to ensure the effectiveness of the light’s killing power. Vital Vio has created a full complement of technology, products and engineering and scientific expertise to deliver a fully holistic approach to designing a cleaner and safer world for us all.
