EXO Mobile Germicidal Unit
ANDES UV-165 and UV-200
Transforms environments into spaces free of bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Mobile system for the disinfection of environments and surfaces based on the irradiation of germicidal ultraviolet light. Optimal for inactivating bacteria, fungi and viruses. 1
Thanks to its simple operation, it is only necessary to place it in the place to be disinfected and operate it for the required time. After a few minutes, disinfections of up to 99% can be achieved in the irradiated area. 2
1. According to international experience and research. 2. According to technical literature.
The EXO Andes UV-165 and UV-200 Germicidal Unit can disinfect a 15m² room in less than 15 minutes, with low energy cost and high efficiency.
99% effective against existing microbes
The bulbs emit shortwave ultraviolet (UV-C) energy that penetrates and deactivates the DNA of viruses, bacteria and fungi causing their cells to die or be unable to reproduce.
Ideal for environments with high circulation
Hospitals, clinics, outpatient clinics, consulting rooms, inpatient wards, nursing homes and care homes, public care, laboratories, pharmacological centres and all kinds of environments!

"...] air conditioners should not be seen as an aggravating factor in the transmission of the virus, but on the contrary, when used properly they can help mitigate the spread of the disease in buildings.
Finally let them know that there are available in the Argentine market portable air purifiers equipped with HEPA filters and germicidal lamps that can be used in any type of environment as a complement to the air conditioning equipment" (Pte. Pablo Echevarría, ASHRAE).
Chemical and microbiological evaluation of the Andes UV-165 EXO prototype for inpatient wards at the Central Military Hospital.
The Andes UV-165 EXO prototype could be effectively considered as an important complement in the methods of disinfection and/or decontamination of environments and/or rooms for the hospitalization and treatment of patients affected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, in particular where traditional cleaning methods cannot reach.
Special lamps emitting UV light with a wavelength between 270 and 230 nm are used to reduce the number of microorganisms in the air, on surfaces in surgical rooms and in aseptic rooms where sterilized products are stored in sterile bottles or ampoules.
Bibliographic studies were carried out to identify the UVGI energy necessary to inactivate most germs, focusing on a high efficiency for SARS type viruses, corresponding to the COVID-19 disease.
Analysis written by Dr. Joseph Mercola. Today, UV light is used in medical settings, wastewater treatment plants and food processing. And because COVID-19 spreads quickly, hospitals and medical facilities have an increased demand for conventional UV lights and their different variations.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation for Decontamination and Reuse of Filtering Facepiece with Respirator N95
The literature indicates that UVGI exposure of 1 J/cm2 is capable of decontaminating N95 respirators from influenza virus, and that exposures as low as 2-5 mJ/cm2 are capable of inactivating coronaviruses on surfaces.
The causes of contagion are mainly due to the septic state of the place, the biological load that the patient is carrying, the surgical material, the circulation and discipline that the staff may have and the maintenance of air quality.

This report addresses the ultraviolet susceptibility of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease. Included is a discussion of the feasibility of using new multivector focused ultraviolet light technology as a disinfection strategy.
The virus was inactivated by ultraviolet (UV) light at 254 nm, heat treatment of 65 "C or higher, alkaline (pH>12) or acidic (pH <3) conditions, formalin and glutaraldehyde treatments. We describe the kinetics of these efficient methods of viral inactivation, which will allow investigations with SARS-CoV containing materials, which become non-infectious, at reduced safety levels.
These data suggest that decontamination and reuse of FFRs with UVGI can be effective. Implementation of a UVGI method will require careful consideration of the FFR model, material type and design.
Environmental disinfection has become the new frontier in the ongoing battle to reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) disinfection is a type of non-contact technology that is proving to be a successful complement to manual cleaning in reducing environmental bioburden.
Ultraviolet LEDs are effective in removing coronavirus from surfaces and potentially from air and water.
Researchers are developing ultraviolet LEDs that have the ability to decontaminate surfaces, and potentially air and water, that have been in contact with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
