Destroy corona virus using UV air disinfection - in care facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living facilities

Scientifically proven: Soluva® Air W reduces the risk of infection through 99.99% air sterilization
Scientifically proven: Soluva® products reduce 99% of viruses

Would you like to live and work without quarantine? Effectively minimize the risk of infection in your facility and protect caregivers, residents and family members with the proven disinfection method. Soluva® air purification devices from Heraeus inactivate viruses using UV-C (UVGI) light.

For many months now, nursing home administrators have been walking a delicate tightrope: on the one hand, protecting those being cared for and their staff, and on the other, social isolation. However, even when practicing the strictest infection control measures, the Corona virus still finds its way in and spreads rapidly among the residents (many at highest risk for infection due to age and existing health condition) and caregivers. Even in non-pandemic times caregivers bear high health risks due to their close proximity to residents. Data shows that before Corona, those working in care facilities for the elderly had one of the highest sickness rates in Germany.

How do corona virus and other infectious diseases spread?

Approximately every second infection is caused by so-called aerosols. They float around in the environment carrying the viruses from person to person as small airborne particles. Conversely, other infection routes such as droplet transmission and smear infections account for only 50%. This is where the gap in infection control measures becomes clear. The recommended hygiene measures (social distancing, washing hands, wearing face masks, disinfecting surfaces) only protect against half of the transmission routes, even when applied meticulously, and not against the presumed greatest risk of infection, aerosols in the air.

Effectiveness is scientifically proven: Fraunhofer Institute confirms 99% virus reduction

Fraunhofer Institute demonstrates 99% virus reduction with Soluva® products

Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP) testing confirms effectiveness of Heraeus UV-C (UVGI) devices under real conditions!

  • UV air purifier Heraeus Soluva® reduces viruses in the classroom by over 90% - while a person in the room exhales viruses - without a mask!
  • Measurements confirm the devices do not generate by-products
  • Measurements by Fraunhofer IBP confirm the predictions of the Heraeus simulation and we can now model other scenarios
  • For the first time, the IRK (indoor air hygiene) conditions for UV-C (UVGI) devices have been met!
