Warwick, RI — May 13, 2021 — Recent independent test results confirm PMC Lighting’s pūr-led lighting has been proven to effectively kill* viruses. While numerous studies have proven effectiveness of pūr-led, which incorporates Vyv antimicrobial LED technology (400-420nm), to kill* bacteria, mold, fungi, and yeast, there is now validation for successfully killing viruses on surfaces. This newest study confirms effectiveness against non-enveloped viruses, which are the most difficult class of virus to

*Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 99.985% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 6 hours on hard surfaces. MRSA and E. coli showed 90%+ reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces. Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the
space where the product is installed and the length of time of exposure. Use of Vyv antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning.
