Germ killing lights? You heard that right. An innovative under-cabinet light takes the work out of keeping surfaces bacteria-free. Introducing ellumi™, the first germ-killing, under-cabinet light fixture for your home. This sleek light promises to safely and effectively banish infectious germs at the flip of switch.
After her grandmother contracted a MRSA infection, caused by a type of resistant staph bacteria during a routine hospital stay, biomedical engineering college student Colleen Costello made it her mission to find a smarter way to manage bacteria levels.
She saw the need for better products and tools available to kill germs and was determined to come up with a solution.
This ground-breaking light incorporates Vital Vio’s VioSafe White Light Disinfection Technology that uses LED light rather than UV light or chemicals, making it safe to keep on all the time, without harm to your family, pets or plants. Light up kitchen countertops, office desk space and other areas while disinfecting the surfaces from harmful bacteria including E. Coli and Salmonella.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 25 patients under hospital care contracts a preventable hospital acquired infection. Alarmed by these stats and her grandmother’s experience, Costello put together a team of engineers and scientists and founded the biotech company Vital Vio, Inc. in 2013.
Known for its antibacterial lighting, Vital Vio focuses on healthcare solutions that have reinvented disinfection, providing both business facilities personnel and residential homeowners new tools to continuously kill germs indoors.
The company’s VioSafe™ White Light Disinfection™ technology uses LED light with specific wavelengths of visible light, rather than harmful UV light or chemicals to kill bacteria. Together with Evolution Lighting, LLC, a leader in innovative premium lighting experiences for the consumer, ellumi was born. Safe for you, your pets and plants, but deadly to bacteria, it eliminates up to 99% of bacteria and over 25 germs.
According to ellumi – in scientific speak – this revolutionary technology “excites certain molecules in harmful microorganisms through photo-activation to produce Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), causing cell wall damage and death over time.”
University research has proven that ellumi’s VioSafe specific wavelengths of light eliminate up to 99% of many different germs – bacteria, mold and fungi – on surfaces, while lighting up your spaces.
Ellumi removes germs where wiping and washing won’t, and you can keep it on for 24 hours a day, seven days a week for safe, energy-saving LED light.
Perfect for the kitchen, office, laundry rooms or anywhere you want to kill bacteria on surfaces, this ingenious light combines sleek design with uber functionality — first and foremost: germ killing.
Even after washing surfaces, germs can remain in homes, offices, hospitals and public spaces. Preventing deadly infections caused by bacteria and other harmful organisms is not only difficult, it’s expensive. Most people know how to clean but fail to disinfect.
Ellumi offers you an easy way to combat bacteria-causing health problems with a modern light that continuously disinfects countertops, desktops and other surfaces, and gives you less chance to contract illnesses. It eliminates germs including Strep, Staph/MRSA, E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria and other harmful microbes that often hide on commonly used surfaces.
Ellumi’s design features a sleek low profile lets you control the amount of light. It uses energy-efficient, money-saving LEDs that last up to 36,000 hours; no more changing light bulbs continually. It’s available in four convenient sizes and you can link up to six units at once (9″, 12″, 18″ and 24″) for customized lighting to the length you need. A dual-mount option lets you plug it into an outlet or direct-wire it to a circuit, for the best installation method in your home.
