Ushio’s antiviral and sterilization UV technology “Care222®”
It is an anti-virus / sterilization technology that cuts wavelengths of 230 nm and above, which adversely affect humans, by combining an excimer lamp with a peak wavelength of 222 nm with a special optical filter. Currently, thousands of Care222® units, which are products equipped with this technology, have been shipped mainly to domestic medical institutions, and we plan to expand them to public facilities and educational institutions in the future.
