What is AP-UVGI?

AP-UVGI is an acronym for Active Personnel Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation.

AP-UVGI is a substitution of human-safe Far-UVC shortwave irradiation replacing conventional longer wavelength mercury-line UVGI and UR-UVGI germicidal ultraviolet-c irradiation. The discovery of select narrow-band of Far-UVC wavelengths that are safe for exposure to people with exceptional germicidal effectiveness makes AP-UVGI the most disruptive technology-based non-pharmaceutical pandemic countermeasure in human history!

Promising new studies show that shorter UVC wavelengths—with the sweet spot using KrCl Excimer bulbs being 222nm—have the unique ability to significantly reduce pathogens and may also be used around people.

Recent research shows that when shortwave Far-UVC 222nm light is paired with a band pass filter that prevents longer wavelengths from being emitted, AP-UVGI can safely reduce pathogens like the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 as well as harmful bacteria, influenza, and antibiotic-resistant superbugs like MRSA, and may also be used around people.

AP-UVGI: TED TALK FAR UVC LIGHT

First Ted Talk: David Brenner, PhD, “A new weapon in the fight against superbugs” 

Since the widespread use of antibiotics began in the 1940s, we’ve tried to develop new drugs faster than bacteria can evolve — but this strategy isn’t working. Drug-resistant bacteria known as superbugs killed nearly 700,000 people last year, and by 2050 that number could be 10 million — more than cancer kills each year. Can physics help? In a talk from the frontiers of science, radiation scientist David Brenner shares his work studying a potentially life-saving weapon: a wavelength of ultraviolet light known as far-UVC, which can kill superbugs safely without penetrating our skin. Followed by a Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson.
