Award-winning design-and-manufacture lighting company, Amerlux, announced a new partnership with Vyv, a health tech company whose signature continuous-use, non-UV antimicrobial light technology will be added into Amerlux’s line of lighting fixtures. 


What is it? 


This groundbreaking venture from Amerlux is the company's answer to an ever increasing demand for lighting that also help clean the environment. The antimicrobial lighting that will be integrated to new and existing products will help reduce the bacteria and microbes people encounter in different spaces on a day-to-day basis. 


Why is it needed? 


Public and private spaces are filled with harmful microorganisms. The breakthrough technology offered by the Amerlux-Vyv collaboration utilizes a spectrum of visible light that fights microorganisms round the clock through inhibiting growth and destroying microbes. Independent researched, and those conducted by the research team for Vyv found out that continuous use of antimicrobial lighting reduced surface contamination by 90%. 


For public places like airports, train stations, hospitals, gym, and schools, this additional benefit can ensure cleaner, healthier spaces. 


What are its uses? 


The non-UV antimicrobial light from Vyv excites porphyrin molecules that can be found in microorganisms. This results to the an excessive production of toxic Reactive Oxygen Species that kill microorganisms. Unlike sanitary wipes or UV light, Vyv's always-on, always-there presence makes an environment inhospitable to the growth of microbes. 


Why is it important? 


Kristin May, the Chief Commercial Operations Officer for Vyv, summarized the benefits of this partnership by saying "The combination of Amerlux as a known and trusted brand and Vyv’s proven antimicrobial technology is a great match as we continue to deliver on our mission of creating a cleaner world for us all.”



Key Aspects
  • Environments that are inhospitable to the growth of microbes.
  • Reduction of more than 90 percent in surface contamination.
  • Lighting that can help clean environments.
