As the need for disinfection technology peaks since the 2020 global health crisis, Hillsboro, Oregon-based Phoseon Technology was approached by a major healthcare organization to aid in decontaminating molecular diagnostic tools. This project has resulted in the world’s largest UV-C LED decontamination system to date. The increased urgency for accuracy and mass production of tests to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 have brought to the surface a common challenge faced by healthcare manufacturers: scaling up production without compromising results. In this case, the components in question are parts of a COVID-19 reverse transcriptase-PCR test kit.
Phoseon’s extensive experience and research on UV-C molecule inactivation, combined with its expertise in large-scale manufacturing of UV LED curing systems, positions the company strategically as the innovator to bring about this industry-changing solution. KeyProTM UV-C LED systems offer controlled, rapid, and reliable RNase inactivation, bringing speed and ease to the decontamination process. Further, Phoseon’s patented Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM™) technology encapsulates LED arrays, optics, and thermal cooling technology to maximize disinfection performance, increase productivity, and reduce costs.
UVC LED decontamination brings a personalized solution to long-standing challenges in the packaging and manufacturing of vulnerable materials. These findings extend beyond decontamination of COVID-19 rt-PCR test kits and apply to the packaging, pharmaceutical, food safety or other industries that must remain contaminant-free.
