Seal Shield announces the SKY family of UVC sanitisers


New sanitisers for smart phones and tablets can reduce the spread of superbugs in less than 30 seconds

Developed by Seal Shield, the SKY is the world’s first UV sanitiser to kill more than 99.95% of pathogens in less than 30 seconds.

Designed for use in hospitals to protect patients and practitioners from dangerous cross-contamination infections, the Sky is also the perfect solution for mobile retailers and IT/MIS professionals who service and support mobile devices of unknown or dubious origins.

Tablet computers and smart phones have been proven to harbour harmful bacteria and viruses. A study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology warns that ‘20–30% of viruses can be readily transferred from a fingertip to a glass surface, such as a touchscreen.’

‘Mobile device hygiene is imperative in today's pathogen-rich environments. Designed to be easy to use, SKY can safely disinfect virtually any mobile device in less than 30 seconds,’ states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch.

The SKY UVC sanitisers use high intensity 254nm UVC light at a close proximity of less than 60 thousandths of an inch to thoroughly disinfect a tablet or smart phone and achieve up to a 6log reduction in pathogens such as MRSE, VRE, MDR, Norovirus and C. difficile.
