Artemis; Far UVC disinfection devices that not only purify the air, but disinfect surfaces too.
What if there was a device that could not only purify the air you breathe but also disinfect surfaces in a room? Well, the Care 222 Artemis range is just that.
Introducing the Artemis range of UVC disinfection devices. The secret to the effectiveness and safety of these devices lies within its Far UVC technology. This recently discovered technology has been proven to be effective in killing airborne pathogens in occupied spaces without causing any harm to people.
Artemis utilises the cutting-edge USHIO Care 222 Far UVC lamps for powerful, safe, and effective disinfection. Its intelligent design ensures that you can enjoy clean, disinfected environments with minimal effort. Offering peace of mind and a safer environment through the power of light.
Artemis (Care222) Range
Artemis (Care222) Benefits
From Japan, Artemis utilises USHIO Care222 Far UVC technology to provide a highly effective form of UVC disinfection. Artemis eliminates 99% of airborne viruses and bacteria from the air and surfaces in a given occupied space.
UVC light kills all known airborne viruses and diseases, including but not limited to:
- Bordetella pertussis - Whooping Cough
- Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
- Kennel Cough
- Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)
- Neisseria meningitidis
- Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS1-2)
- Streptococcus pneumonia
This is a non-exhaustive list that only encompasses some of the common diseases that have been implicated in airborne transmission.] A special note to be made is regarding COVID-19, the 21st-century pandemic which is spread through airborne routes (among other routes).
All known variants are known to be destroyed with the correct dosage of UVC. Active measures to prevent airborne transmission have been shown to curb its spread.
The Lunar 222 and Downlight 222 models in our Artemis range are 2 in 1 lighting and disinfection devices that blend seamlessly in with your ceiling and can even replace existing lighting features. You don’t have to sacrifice stylish design in order to have a safe, disinfected environment - with Artemis, you can have both!
The Artemis range also includes our Portable 222 disinfection device which doesn’t require installation at all. If preferred, it can be mounted onto a wall, but this handy device can simply be positioned on a tripod, hung off a lamp, or put in a range of other places - the options are endless!
Artemis Care 222 has an auto-running IoT operating system that allows for multiple device operations to be controlled wirelessly. Equipped with sensor-based safety functions, the Artemis range offers you a seamless user experience.
The Artemis range has low energy consumption and a long lifespan, which makes it an extremely cost-effective option for maintaining a clean, hygienic environment. The bonus is there’s no noise! So these products are perfect for any space.
Our Lunar 222 and Downlight 222 Artemis disinfection devices have indirect lighting, which is a type of lighting that is soft, comfortable and has no glare. This is made possible through the introduction of MCPET (Microcellular PET sheet).
These sheets have the world’s highest reflectance due to their ultra-fine foam structure, which means they have excellent light reflecting performance.
Therefore, with these Artemis devices, less light source is required, making a significant contribution to power conservation.
The Science Behind Artemis and Care222 Far UVC Technology
Care222 Far UVC is a cutting-edge UV light technology that is quickly changing the way we think about UVC disinfection. Discovered by David Brenner of Columbia University in 2020 (now exclusively licenced to USHIO Japan) it was found by utilising the 222 nm wavelength of UVC light, Care222 not only is able to effectively eliminate viruses and bacteria by destroying their DNA and RNA but allows it to be used in occupied spaces.
This stops DNA replication and destroys the pathogen. With its powerful disinfection capabilities, Care222 is quickly becoming the standard for UVC disinfection and is currently installed in thousands of applications around the world.
Care 222 uses a krypton-chlorine (Kr-Cl) excimer lamp which produces UV light at 222 nm and an optical filter to make UV disinfection safe. The 222 nm UVC wavelength is absorbed by the dead skin layer of the stratum corneum and the upper layer of the cornea of the eye, so there is no risk of skin cancer or eye disease.
